Robin McBryde says 'there will only be one result' on Saturday if Wales match the standards of a patriotic one-man play they watched in England's Principality Stadium changing room.

Wales players and members of the coaching staff and management were treated to a private performance of Grav, which is based on the life of former Wales international centre and broadcaster Ray Gravell, who died in 2007.

It was performed by Welsh actor Gareth J Bale - not to be confused with the superstar Wales footballer -in the stadium's away team changing room, and left McBryde emotionally recounting the Monday night memory.

We had a fantastic experience, and we should have played straight after that, to be honest with you.

It really put us in a good place, mentally-wise. If we can in any way match Gareth Bale's performance of last night on Saturday, it doesn't matter if the (stadium) roof is open or closed, there will only be one result.

It was a great way to kick off the week to really focus people's minds. But we have to put it under wraps until we draw on that experience on Saturday.

We have got to be on top of our game. There is no hiding place on Saturday."

– Robin McBryde, Wales assistant coach
