Sam Warburton goes on the attack against Ireland last weekend.
Wales captain Sam Warburton has revealed the squad are desperate to put right the disappointment of the defeat against Ireland when they take on France next Friday.
Individually and collectively we are all eager to put it right. It's not like we have finished the campaign, we have a chance to put it right
The visitors arrive at the Millennium Stadium with back-to-back victories to their name but Wales have been working hard reflecting on Dublin and putting things right according to Warburton.
"The players are desperate to show everyone the Wales they know," he said. "The result was a massive disappointment with a lot of uncharacteristic errors.
"From a structural point of view as forwards we have to take responsibility, we simply didn't replicate what we had done in training during the game and that is disappointing.
"It was frustrating, we weren't urgent enough and our ball retention wasn't good enough but the things that went wrong can all be put right and we are working hard to do so in the build up to France.
"Individually and collectively we are all eager to put it right. It's not like we have finished the campaign, we have a chance to put it right.
"We have won 10 out of our last 12 Six Nations games and we need to remember that. We are used to meeting up at the start of the week in a positive mood so this week has been a little different.
"We took a day to look back and reflect, now the focus is on putting it right and we have got that opportunity in front of our home crowd to put in a performance and get the result against France.
"In hindsight its similar to the England game last year, what happened to us is similar to what happened to them that day. In the match against England we were on the money and they weren't and that was the case against Ireland, everything went right for them."
Warburton returned to action from injury off the bench against Italy before getting a full 80 minutes under his belt at the Aviva Stadium last weekend. He returns to Cardiff Blues this weekend to feature in their clash against Glasgow Warriors and he is looking forward to the regional encounter.
"I'm looking forward to playing this weekend, it's a win, win situation" he added.
"Hopefully I can help them pick up some points in the league and for me I get the benefit of getting some more miles in the legs as well.
"It will be great to be back and put the blue jersey back on. I haven't played for them since October so it's been a good few months so it will be nice to be back out there.
"The defeat out in Munster was disappointing but we have got a home game, in front of our fans and it's a great chance to pick up some points."
Warburton and the rest of the Wales squad will meet back up on Sunday to continue their preparations for the game against France.
The visitors have a good record of championship success in seasons following British and Irish Lions tours but Warburton doesn't think that will have an impact this time around.
"Looking back, 8, 12, 16 years ago the off season for players was very short, now it is so well managed I don't think it will be an excuse.
"The regions and the national squad have looked after players so well on their return I don't think it's going to have an impact this time around.
"We are just focused on going out and putting in a performance we know we can."
