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.

Sloppy

"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."
