Davies has urged Wales to finish their summer series on a high
Jonathan Davies insists beating Australia Down Under is "vital" to Wales' ongoing development.
The Six Nations Grand Slam winners face the Wallabies in their final summer Test in Sydney on Saturday, and while the series has already been lost the chance to claim a first victory against them Down Under since 1969, remains.
And Davies, a try-scorer in the 25-23 loss in Melbourne, is desperate to finish the tour on a high.
"What's vital for this team is how we react," said the Scarlets centre.
"We must react in a positive manner as we've got to finish the tour on a good note. It is very important we came down here and got a victory.
"Although the test series is lost now, I think for the development of this squad to the autumn we have to make sure we get a victory and ensure we keep focused."
Wales appeared set to claim an illusive victory over the Wallabies at Etihad Stadium on Saturday as they led 23-22 at 80 minutes
But Wallaby replacement fly-half Mike Harris broke Welsh hearts with the final kick of the game.
Wales boast just one victory over the one of the southern hemisphere giants in their last 39 meetings but caretaker head coach Rob Howley insists the gap is closing.
"We're getting closer," said Rob Howley.
"This team has been to some dark places, particularly in the Rugby World Cup, and we'll move on.
"But our emotional intelligence and composure in critical areas in the game must get better."
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
