Wales coach Rob Howley stated defensive errors against Australia saw centre Jamie Roberts dropped from the starting lineup to the replacements bench for Saturdays clash with Argentina in Cardiff.Roberts has been a starter in 82 of his 84 games for Wales, stretching back to 2008. Reflecting on the decision to omit him from the starting XV, Howley gave his thoughts during a press conference at Wales training base.I sat down with Jamie this morning. There were a number of defensive errors in our game, and Jamie is the defensive captain, Howley added.The standard of defence wasnt good enough, and we have made a reaction and made a change. I dont look forward to it, and neither do the other coaches, when you are dropping a player of that experience. But when you have the performance which we did in that area, you have to make a change.Jamie understands that. In fairness to him, when we met the leadership group on Monday, he was the first player to put his hand up and said he made mistakes, so I am expecting a positive response if, and when, he is needed off the bench on Saturday.Howley, meanwhile, confirmed that Webb will undergo surgery on Friday and miss the remainder of this seasons autumn programme.
