Davies: We lacked consistency

Jonathan Davies has admitted Wales 'lacked consistency' during this season's Six Nations' Championship but was proud of their 'ruthless performance' against Scotland on Saturday when they won 51-3 at the Millennium Stadium.

Wales had gone into the 2014 edition of the championship on the back of two title seasons but this time suffered defeats to Ireland and England.

The centre said: "We have been inconsistent at times. But it is a sign of where we are as a team that we pride ourselves to be competing for championships.

"It was weird not having something to play for this week but we showed the character of the team.

"We just need to make sure our accuracy, how we use the ball and where we play, gets better.

"Considering we put some pressure on ourselves to deliver a performance against Scotland, I thought it was pretty good."

As for the game against the Scots, he added: "It was nice to get a bit of ball in some space.

"Obviously, them being down to 14 men helped us but we had to make sure we used the ball effectively. We scored some good tries.

"Opportunities came and we took them. The best teams in the world finish off teams - they put them to the sword.

"That is what we talked about when they went down to 14 men, to keep going for the whole game.

"To be fair to Scotland, they kept the ball in the second half, but we were always in control."
