“We’ve had a reset after what was a tough three days in Toulouse. They were long days, especially when results and performances aren’t quite where you want them to be,” said Pugh.

France inflicted a heavy defeat in Wales’ opening pool game last weekend in Toulouse, and Pugh’s side found the going tough thereafter.

“It was just one of those tournaments where we didn’t really hit our straps,” admitted Pugh.

“We had the one game where we showed what we are capable of against Canada. When we had the ball, we showed what a threat we are but ultimately, we didn’t create enough opportunity for ourselves in the other games and at times we weren’t tough enough to beat.

“The challenge was always going to be difficult against France in France, Fiji and New Zealand in the quarter-finals but we have got to start and be better in those games,” added Pugh.

Wales face last week’s winners Fiji, USA and Spain this weekend at Twickenham in Pool A.

“You look at any of the pools and they are all going to be difficult but we have got to have confidence to go and attack it because we can’t afford to start like we did last week in France,” said Pugh.

“As a group we realise we have to perform in terms of what we are capable of and what we can achieve so I’m still positive we can turn it around for this week and put our hands up for a good performance.”
