Coach urges Welsh to finish series on a high by stopping Springboks

Robin McBryde: "If the performance is up there, I think the result takes care of itself, so we are really looking for the boys to step up."

Robin McBryde has urged Wales to grasp the opportunity of finishing their autumn series in style today.

Victory over Principality Stadium visitors South Africa would give Wales three wins out of four in November and deliver their best series of autumn results since 2002.

But after being beaten heavily by Australia, and then claiming narrow victories over Argentina and Japan, public and media criticism has accompanied the November Tests.

"We can't kid ourselves," Wales assistant coach McBryde said yesterday.

"If the performance is up there, I think the result takes care of itself, so we are really looking for the boys to step up.

"It's the last opportunity to show what we can do against quality opposition, and we can't pass it up. It's got to be tomorrow, and we have got to front-up and show what we can do.

"I imagine it is going to be a very physical game, and we have got to show plenty of composure and accuracy with ball in hand.

"It's down to performance, and what you do with the experience. We have got a vastly experienced squad, and hopefully we can show that.

"It would be good to finish on a high note."
