Cardiff - Wales lock Bradley Davies is determined to put smiles back
on the faces of the Principality Stadium crowd when Argentina come to town.
The second-row started in the disappointing 32-8 defeat by
Australia in Wales' first November Series Test match.
Rob Howley's men have no
time to dwell on the performance, as they prepare to face a Pumas side fresh
from a 54-20 victory over Japan in Tokyo. And Davies is determined to do the
"We're all a bit gutted with how the game panned out.
We feel like we let ourselves down on the field. But it is what it is. We'll
have a meeting to go through the bones of it and it won't be pleasant viewing.
We have to take it on the chin and move forward. We're all proud Welshman and
we hate losing, especially in that manner," Davies told the official Wales
"But we have to pick ourselves up and if we win the
next three games then everyone will say it was a successful Autumn, so that's
what we have to strive for. We want to improve, but the biggest thing for us is
to take what we can and learn.
"I know what it's like in Wales. You go to work on a
Monday and if Wales have lost your week is terrible, if Wales have won it picks
you up for the week. Hopefully we can put a smile on people's faces this
Wales could be boosted by the return of captain Sam Warburton,
Jonathan Davies, Alun Wyn Jones and Liam Williams.
Davies reckons his side will have to hit top form to tame
the Pumas on Saturday.
"We know Argentina are going to present a massive
challenge for us. They have been playing some very good rugby and the way they
have improved from the World Cup has been phenomenal Before this autumn, we
knew what the challenge would be.
"We have got to pick ourselves and we have shown over
the years that we can do that."
