Francis hails squad with Welsh extending unbeaten run to nine
Tomas Francis has hailed the "unreal" atmosphere in Wales' squad following the completion of a first four-from-four autumn Tests clean sweep.
Francis' early try - no Wales prop had previously touched down in Tests against South Africa, New Zealand or Australia - sent his team on their way to a 20-11 victory over the Springboks.
Wales extended an unbeaten run to nine games - their longest winning sequence since 1999 - and they have not lost at home for a year.
It augurs well for a Six Nations campaign that begins against France in Paris on February 1, with Francis, who had never scored a try for Wales or his club Exeter, enthused by what lies ahead.
"Winning is a habit and, as a squad, we believe," he said. "Everyone works for each other, and we are on a good run at the minute. It is a squad you want to be involved in. The atmosphere is unreal.
It was a great feeling to score a try - it is not something I do very often. I think the last one was when I played for London Scottish or Doncaster."
Wales' win came at a cost, with back row forward Ellis Jenkins suffering a knee injury that could see him miss the entire Six Nations campaign and possibly the rest of this season.
