Lydiate: Expecting an inquest

Sky Bet

Wales flanker Dan Lydiate is expecting a few home truths at training this week as the squad look to bounce back from the 26-19 defeat to England.

Defeat in the RBS Six Nations opener means Wales have now failed to win in their past eight Tests and face a daunting trip to Scotland on Saturday.

Wales have won just three times in the past 20 years at Murrayfield - with an intense week ahead as they look to regroup.

And Lydiate insists the squad will be working hard over the coming days in a bid to turn around their fortunes.


"We need to get back to winning ways," said Lydiate. "Once we do that, we will get some momentum and it will give us a boost.

"There were times we were sloppy against England, and we need to cut out those mistakes. If we do that, we will really be firing.

"We were a bit rusty, and you cannot be that way at this level.

"Nobody is hurting more than the players, and we are all disappointed for the fans. We will take a good long hard look at what happened.

"Fingers will be pointed this week, and we will sort it out for next weekend."
