Rhys Webb confident 'hurt' Wales will finish Six Nations strongly

Rhys Webb has backed Wales to deliver a strong Six Nations finish this season - despite suffering successive championship defeats for the first time since 2010.

Scotland's 29-13 victory over Wales at Murrayfield left Webb and company way off the title pace. It followed a home loss to Six Nations favourites England two weeks ago, and life is not about to get any easier, with Ireland arriving in Cardiff on March 10, followed by a Paris appointment with France eight days later.

When Wales last experienced back-to-back Six Nations reversals seven years ago, France and Ireland were their conquerors.

We will look back on this game, be harsh on ourselves, look at the areas we need to improve. The main thing is playing for the full 80 minutes. Against England, we played for 65 minutes, against Scotland we felt we just played for 40 minutes.

We had our chances in the second half, but didn't capitalise on them. It was a very disappointing day in the office. It's a week off now, so time to look back over this game and get ourselves back up.

It is going to be hurting, the first couple of days next week, and then we will look forward to Ireland.
