Bradley Davies: Chance to end the tour on a high
Wales lock Bradley Davies has urged his team-mates to finish their three-Test tour of Australia on a high in Sydney on Saturday.
The Grand Slam champions lost 25-23 to Australia last weekend in Melbourne, following a 27-19 loss in the first Test in Brisbane. Wales have not beaten the Wallabies in Australia since 1969.
"It was a massive disappointment last weekend and everyone was devastated. But we had a really good session on Tuesday and it is important we get ready for the third Test in Sydney," Davies said.
"We are an honest group and we are used to having some tough analysis sessions after a game. We know that if we've done something wrong it is going to be highlighted and I've been in that situation before - getting rollickings after games and getting bans.
"It is how you learn and adapt from that that matters and as a squad we are getting really closer. It is only by taking it on the chin that you improve as players.
"We thought the penalty at the driving line-out was a bit harsh. We didn't think they were going to score because not many teams score from driving line-outs against us.
"As a pack, we pride ourselves on not getting bullied in that way. They got a bit of a drive on and then we peeled off and the referee interpreted it as a pull down.
"We were disappointed in that because they were just about to peel off and try the pick and go. It was a terrible feeling.
"With 30 seconds left I thought we had it, but then we did a long kick and gave away a penalty. The rest is history - it is difficult to take as a player having been involved in that.
"Now we want to go out on Saturday and finish on a high. We need to do that - we need to take something away from this tour and it is important to finish with a victory."
Wales are due to announce their team for the third Test at 1400 local time on Thursday (0500 BST). Scarlets back-row man Aaron Shingler is out of contention after being sent home after sustaining a dead leg in the midweek win over the Brumbies.
He is the second player to go home, following Dragons wing Aled Brew, who was also injured in the game in Canberra.
