Wales centre Jonathan Davies said head coach Wayne Pivac has full support from the players following the recent defeat in the Autumn Nations opener against Ireland.

Wales were completely outplayed by Andy Farrell's side as Quinn Roux and James Lowe scored tries while Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray and Billy Burns contributed 22 points between them combined to take them to 32 points while Wales managed just nine points that came from the boot of Leigh Halfpenny.

The defeat also marked Wales' sixth loss from seven games since Pivac took over from Warren Gatland as head coach post the 2019 World Cup.

"Yes, of course," said Davies about the support from the players to Pivac.

"We enjoy preparing the plan he wants in the week. It's just at the moment we need to make sure we are delivering on a game day.

"There has been a bit of change but the change has been in a positive way. We need to make sure all the work we put in during the week comes to fruition.

"Our frustration levels are extremely high because we are not delivering that."

Wales will next line-up against Georgia at Parc y Scarlets on 21st November before facing England on 28th November at the same venue.
