Bale adds new weapon to arsenal

Wales star Gareth Bale believes his long throw can be another weapon that can be used to help his national side when needed.

The Real Madrid superstar used his latest weapon with success during Wales' 2-2 with Austria in World Cup qualifying.

One of his bombs into the box led to the Dragons second goal as Austria's Kevin Wimmer diverted the ball into his own net.

The 27-year-old admits that using the long throw in Sunday's Group D clash against Georgia is an option for Chris Coleman's team.

"I'll see what the manager says. If it's something that can help us win the game or get something from the game like it did in Vienna, then perfect, we'll use it," he told reporters.

"I suppose it's another weapon we've got and, if we need to use it, we'll use it."

Wales head into Sunday's contest with Georgia tied on points with four other sides at the top of Group D. A victory against the Crusaders could be a key result in the nation's quest to qualify for Russia in 2018.
