The Wales forwards coach has had much to admire from the performances against Fiji, Portugal and Australia that saw his side become the first team to qualify for the World Cup quarter finals. Now they need just need to secure one more point against the Georgians to top their pool.

“There has been a bit of an edge about training, which is what we want. We’re just keen to continue the progress that we’ve shown,” said Humphreys.

“That is a big driving force for us, and we have talked constantly about that. We know Georgia are a dangerous outfit, they showed that in large patches against Fiji, and we cannot afford to go off-script.”

Less than a year ago the Georgians came to Cardiff and beat a Welsh team then being coached by Wayne Pivac, 13-12. Humphreys was involved then and knows they can take nothing for granted.

“I expect them to play a bit, and they are strong up tfront – we are under no illusion about that,” added Humphreys.

“We’ve had five months together and we’re more like a club team now than an international side. We came in earlier than most teams, we knew what we wanted to improve and we haven’t deviated from that.

“The messages that went out in May haven’t changed at all. Every day, it has been working on the fundamentals we felt were important and would make a difference.

“The feeling has been good and we’re just keen to continue the progress that we’ve shown. That’s a big driving force for us.”
