Warren Gatland has hailed his Wales players' performance against France in the Millennium Stadium, after the reigning Six Nations champions beat France 27-6.
The win came after a disappointing 26-3 defeat to Ireland in Dublin two weeks ago.
"Even though there was a lot of criticism out there and people calling for wholesale changes, I'm a great believer in sometimes giving players the chance to redeem themselves and I think that's definitely what happened," said Gatland.
Meanwhile Wales Backs coach Shaun Edwards, said: "I think that's four games we've not conceded a try against them (France) and I think a lot of it's down to fear."
Edwards also paid tribute to the work Forwards coach Robin McBryde has done on Wales' maul.
In the post match press conference, McBryde said: "We got our house in order, basically, and they came back strong.
"I think it was a lesson against Ireland, you can't rely on reputation alone. The character of who you are, that's really the most important thing."
