Shane Williams has stressed the need for rock-solid mental toughness as Wales prepare to embark on their World Cup campaign.
The Ospreys try machine heads into his final World Cup determined that Wales do themselves justice following a painful pool stage exit in France four years ago.
Fiji, their conquerors on that occasion, return for another crack at destabilising Wales' ambitions in Hamilton early next month, by which time Williams and company will have faced South Africa, Samoa and Namibia.
It all starts on Sunday with a Pool D clash against the Springboks, opponents Wales have beaten just once from 25 previous attempts stretching back 105 years.
Recent form, though, suggests Wales have more than a fighting chance of bucking that trend, having arrived in New Zealand with five victories from their last seven Tests.
“We don't dwell on 2007, we dwell on what has happened recently,” said Williams, who is set to win his 82nd cap this weekend.
“In a World Cup, you have only one chance, really. If you go out and under-perform like we did last time, you are going home early. We certainly don't want that to happen again.”
