74:06 on the clock at a damp grey Twickenham, bread of heaven ringing around the stadium and Wales less than six minutes away from a second consecutive Rugby World Cup semi final, and leading South Africa 19-18.
The men in red had given everything, put their bodies on the line and repelled everything the Springboks had thrown at them, which included the kitchen sink and the kitchen itself.
One scrum, one pass and the dream was over .
This team, this squad, this group have displayed qualities that have made the nation proud, and that have upheld the standards and ethics of this great game
They have shown humility in victory and graciousness in defeat and in captain Sam Warburton they have someone very special both as a rugby player and as a person.
Thank you Wales for a magical four weeks , for your efforts , and for the humble way you have conducted yourselves, we feel you are part of us and that we are part of you.
We are sad that this particular journey is over, but we will all unite again for another roller coaster ride soon.
