Faletau has challenged Wales to defend their Six Nations crown after a disappointing Autumn
Toby Faletau reckons Wales must turn their frustrations of the autumn to defending their RBS 6 Nations crown for a record second time.
Wales had targeted at least three wins from their four Dove Men Series matches but only managed victories over Argentina and Tonga.
Faletau admits it is disappointing, none more so than Saturday's 30-26 defeat to Australia - the Wallabies ninth straight victory over Wales.
"It is frustrating because we have played Australia so many times and just lost," said Faletau.
"We have not beaten any of the big three but we just have to go back and look at the game and see what happens when we come up against them again.
"It was a tough game, one of the hardest against Australia. We made a really good start to build a lead but we allowed them back into the match.
"Australia have a really good backline and you could just see what they did out there. They can strike from anywhere.
"It was a disappointing autumn because we set ourselves a target of three wins and we have not managed that.
"A few boys have come in and done well and we have to look forward now and concentrate on the Six Nations."
No side has won three outright titles in a row in 130 years of Championship history.
Sam Warburton challenged his side to write history in 2014 and Faletau admits it is a major motivation.
"We have to look ahead to what is in front of us and try to defend our title," added the Newport Gwent Dragons star.
"I don't think there has been a team to win three Six Nations titles in a row, and that is what we have to target. That is a motivation as we try to make history, so if you can't get up for that then you shouldn't be playing."
Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
Wales head coach Warren Gatland and captain Sam Warburton say their first prioirty on Sunday in the opening game of the World Cup is to win against Uruguay and not get overly concerned with points difference.
With only days to go until the biggest rugby competition in the world begins, rugby fans visiting Cardiff this autumn will be able to enjoy a special display at National Museum Cardiff as part of the celebrations surrounding the Rugby World Cup.
