Six Nations 2015: Wales will go into World Cup on high, says Webb

Rhys Webb considers Wales will go into the Rugby World Cup on a high after completing the RBS 6 Nations firmly with four wins from five.

The Ospreys scrum half was an instrumental figure in the 2nd half of Wales’ record 61-20 triumph over Italy in Rome on Saturday afternoon.

While it was not enough for Wales to procure the title, it was a brilliant second half performance at the Stadio Olimpico as Wales ran in 47 points as they chased a third title in four years.

Warren Gatland’s guys have still been left to rue their opening round defeat to England in Cardiff that came from a poor second half performance, however they rallied nicely to win their next four, including an impressive Grand Slam-bursting win over champs Ireland last month.

And Webb insists that Wales will take plenty of positives going in their World Cup training camps.

“We’ve grown match to match, and we’ve revealed our assaulting skill and what we can do,” Webb said.

“We’re kicking ourselves a little bit for this second half against England, but you can not dwell on it, and we’ve completed the contest on a high.

“We’re in a great location, and we’ll take plenty of positives from our operation in Italy.

“We will work hard in the training camps in the summertime, and proceed to the World Cup on a high.”

Wales led 14-13 at the break by means of a Jamie Roberts try, two penalties from Leigh Halfpenny and a third from Dan Biggar as they ran in seven tries before turning on the fashion in the 2nd half.

Northampton Saints winger George North became the first Welsh player to score a tournament hat trick as he crossed the line three times in 11 minutes.
