Luke Charteris believes the fanatical support Wales' World Cup heroes have received is "an extra incentive" to continue their remarkable journey in New Zealand.
More than 60,000 people are expected at the Millennium Stadium tomorrow morning, to view a big screen viewing of Wales' semi-final clash against France.
"It is a big undertaking for people and it shows the support for us," Charteris said. "Knowing all the effort our supporters are making and the excitement back home, it is an extra incentive for us to reach the final. It's the least we can do."
Charteris is now braced for a stern examination from France, whose recent record against Wales shows nine wins in 11 starts.
"We have to get parity or win the battle up front," he said. "Do that and we have seen what our backs can do. We will find out on Saturday whether we have got it right. We are always working on new things.
"We have the philosophy that if we do our jobs spot-on, we will do well. If we get our processes right, we are confident we are going to get the right result."
