Wales wing Josh Adams believes they need to clinical in their approach in the final Test in Cape Town as they chase a historic series victory.

While South Africa started the series with a 32-29 win in Pretoria, Wayne Pivac's men bounced back with a 13-12 win in Bloemfontein to level the series.

The win last weekend was also the first for the Wales against the Springboks in the South African soil and Adams is wary of the task ahead.

“Our resolve just to stay in the fight was really good, the forwards kept chipping away. We didn't rush anything, we didn't lose any patience,” Adams said.

“You have to be clinical against SA, especially when you get into their 22. You've got to come away with as many points as you can get.

“We were clinical — one shot, one kill if you like.”

The last time Adams toured South Africa was during his stint with the British and Irish Lions where he saw his side edged out 2-1 but now he has a chance to make amends as Wales chase their first ever series victory in South Africa.

“To come out here and win a series will fill the squad with loads of confidence to take forward. We've shown how good we can be and our challenge is to stay there and be consistent.

“Probably in times gone past we haven't been as consistent as we'd liked, but in the two games we played out here we've got better from game one to game two.”
