Wales Women's coach Jason Lewis has resisted the temptation to make changes for Sunday's clash at the Brewery Field against Italy after consecutive defeats to France and Ireland in the Six Nations championship.
The current Triple Crown champions have made just one change on the bench with injury forcing out scrum half Laura Prosser. Her place has been taken by the veteran winger Louise Rickard who will be hoping to add to her 110 caps.
Wales began the tournament in confident mood, but have recorded just one victory in their current campaign but are determined to add the scalp of Italy alongside that of Scotland.
"We're obviously looking to finish the championship on a winning note," said Lewis. "We've got to give ourselves some confidence going into the World Cup. But we have to cut out the basic errors and mistakes from our game. You can't give away 20 penalties and expect to win an international game of rugby."
He added his side were frustrated as they have actually shown sporadic glimpses of the form which made them championship contenders last season.
"We have been our own worst enemies at time - our own mistakes cost us against Ireland. In the first half against France and Ireland we played reasonably well but didn't take it to the next level.
"The temptation could be there to change the way we play but we know that when it clicks we are a really good side. There are a lot of spoiling sides out there but we like to play attractive rugby. We just need to play the referees better and learn from our mistakes."
