Wales flanker Martyn Williams intends to drive his country to to a second successive RBS Six Nations title.
The Dragons open their Grand Slam defence against Scotland at Murrayfield on February 8, before welcoming England to Cardiff for a St. Valentine's day clash
And Williams reckons Warren Gatland's men are intent on keeping hold of their crown. He said: "The Six Nations is massively important to us. We've moved on from last year's success in the Autumn internationals but now we want to kick on again."
If you look at all the top sides they win things year in, year out and there's no reason why we can't be at that level too.
"There's more to come from us. The coaches have only been in charge for 12 months and the squad is improving in each campaign with players like Andy Powell and Leigh Halfpenny coming from nowhere and stepping up to the mark.
"We've got a settled squad but it will be great to also welcome quality players like Mike Phillips, Gavin Henson and Jonathan Thomas back into the squad because I believe the Six Nations will be harder than last year.
"Scotland at Murrayfield on the opening weekend is the hardest draw we could have asked for and will be tougher than the opener versus England last season.
"No one believed we could go to Twickenham and win while this time everyone is expecting us to win - it's a pressure we must handle."
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.
