Wales coach Warren Gatland paid tribute to the dazzling Shane Williams after his brace of tries helped secure a 33-16 win over Argentina at the Millennium Stadium.
Williams hadn't scored for Wales since touching down against Australia last November, so it was a relief all round when he pounced to take his tally to 48 Test tries with Wales.
Gatland said: "I think the first one he made a little bit more difficult for himself than he could have but it's great to see him making a few breaks with the ball in his hands. It's great to see him playing with a bit of confidence again. It helps any team if they have players with the X-factor.
"We are fortunate to have two or three in the side and Shane is definitely one of those. Shane is a very talented player. You need players who can create something out of nothing"
Gatland also singled out Stephen Jones, who finished with 17 points. "He's like a good red wine, getting better with age," said Gatland, before adding: "Overall I am very pleased with the performance. We felt that we are making some progress."
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
Jason Harries is targeting a first win on the World Series circuit this season with Wales. The series returns to action this weekend in Dubai where Harries is part of a team hoping to build from its efforts in round one in October.
Wales skipper Jevon Groves says his side have addressed a few points from Gold Coast and aim to 'hit the ground running' in the next two rounds of the World Series, kicking off with this weekend in Dubai before heading off to South Africa next week.
Wales Sevens manager Steff Thomas is hopeful his side can build from a quarter-final spot in the opening round of the World Series in Australia when his side take part in the forthcoming double header in Dubai and South Africa.
