Wales not worried by poor run against Australia - Webb

Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb claims his country's poor record against Australia is not playing on players' minds ahead of their game in Cardiff on Saturday.

This weekend's hosts have not beaten the Wallabies since 2008, last meeting during last year's World Cup when Australia won 15-6. 

But Wales did come within five points of Australia in each of their five meetings prior to that match. 

The game is the first of four Tests for Wales in Cardiff over the coming month, with Argentina, Japan and South Africa also set to visit.

"Obviously, there have been plenty of opportunities against Australia, but that's for you guys [media] to talk about - the narrow losses," said Webb. 

"We certainly haven't been thinking about it these last two weeks.

"We are just going to concentrate on ourselves. We have learnt from our tour to New Zealand [a 3-0 defeat].

"We talked about what we needed to do better. We know what we need to do, and we know we need to play for 80 minutes.

"We are professional rugby players, and we want to play games to win. It's all about winning. We are just concentrating on ourselves and making sure we get our job done."
