Wales coach Steve Hansen says fans should be confident rather than nervous about next Saturday's Test against New Zealand after his side's brave 10-30 loss to Australia in Sydney.
'We've always talked about putting more emphasis on performances and I thought that our performance in the first-half performances was very good,' the New Zealander said.
'Even though scoreboard said 18-3 I thought we did a lot of good stuff, the pity is that we let in a couple of very soft tries that really hurt us.
'I think everyone in Australia knows that Wendell can't kick but we allowed him to run from his own goal line and he went on to score a great try. Then we turned over the ball at a ruck and Wendell scored again. It's fair to say that both of those tries stung us a bit.
'But I was really pleased with the composure of the boys, they never gave up. They finished both halves very well and probably deserved to score a couple more tries.
'Any team finds it difficult to score tries against Australia. We created chances but full credit to Australia - their defence is simply outstanding.'
Hansen said Wales had 'some way to go' before they could compete with the big boys of international rugby.
'At this stage in our development we still have some way to go. We've been on the training programme we have been on for 12 months whereas those guys have been doing it for four or five years.
'Andrew Hore is working with the guys but he needs time. It takes time to build up that base of explosive power. I'm sure it will come but we've just got to be patient with what we're trying to do.
'I obviously haven't watched the England-All Blacks game yet but we will do and analyse them as individuals and collectively as a unit,' said Hansen.
'We will also have to look at our own areas. The lineout I though was very good, there weren't too many problems with the scrum. Perhaps we need to look at the first-time tackle area.
'But it's very easy to sit hear and get emotive about what we're going to do. We've just to take time out, look at the tapes and work out what is necessary. We're just going to enjoy each other's company for next day or so and then start again.'
