Jenkins: Refusing to get carried away
Wales prop Gethin Jenkins has insisted there is still plenty of work to be done despite their impressive victory over England.
The Welsh upset the odds to record a 26-19 over England in their opening RBS Six Nations clash - their first win at Twickenham in 20 years.
However, the pressure is now on Wales to match the highs of that win when they entertain Scotland in Cardiff.
"Even though we got the win, there is plenty for us to work on and improve," said Jenkins, who captained Wales in their post-World Cup game against South Africa.
"We know expectation is on us, but we also know that we have to keep out feet on the ground and keep working on things that we have worked on over the last two weeks and get better at them because every game is a massive game for us."
Wales were given little chance of beating England - however Jenkins was full of praise of the impact that the new-look coaching team has had on the squad.
Warren Gatland was handed the reigns after the departure of Gareth Jenkins, while the New Zealander turned to two of his former Wasps lieutenants by appointing Shaun Edwards and Rob Howley on his backroom staff.
And Jenkins insists that the trio have given a fresh outlook to Wales.
He said: "They are focused individuals and they have just given us direction.
"A lot of stuff we have done has been short, sharp drills. There has been a lot intensity brought to training and that's what the boys have really been thriving on. There has been a great spirit in the squad for the last two weeks.
"Those coaches have sort of brought things like that in. It's just a buzz for the whole squad who are going into a game knowing what they are doing and actually feeling confident."
