Retired Wales stars Sam Warburton and Shane Williams believe their countrymen have what it takes to snap a 13-game, 10-year losing streak against the Wallabies this weekend in Cardiff.

There is quiet confidence amongst locals in the aftermath of a 21-10 victory over Scotland at Principality Stadium last Saturday afternoon. The two-tries-to-one victory was Wales’ first win to begin an Autumn international campaign since 2002.

While it was not a completely polished or electric performance by any means, getting the first fixture out of the way will settle the nerves of the Welsh before a hit-out against the Australians who arrived on Sunday to begin preparations for game one of a three-match European tour.

Much is made every year of the remarkable winning streak the Australians hold over Wales, dating back to 2009 when a Wallabies side captained by Rocky Elsom got the job done 33-12 in Cardiff.

Since then there has been little to smile about for Wales, but it is worth noting 11 of Australia’s 13 wins in that period have been by nine points or less.

Warburton, who captained the British and Irish Lions last year and played 74 Tests for Wales, was involved in 10 of the 13 losses but is optimistic about the opportunity that lies ahead this weekend.

“I can put my hand on my heart and say that Wales are good enough to beat Australia,” Warburton wrote of the world’s third ranked side in a column for The Times.

“If 75,000 supporters can believe the same thing and express that in their voices on Saturday, Wales will beat Australia and end that losing run.

“We just haven’t been able to have the composure to finish these games when we have been in the lead. I don’t think it is a psychological problem.”

Warburton, however, stopped short of saying Australia were vulnerable after a year in which they have been well below par and showed few signs of improvements from 2017.

In June the Wallabies lost a three-Test series to Ireland 2-1, to go with three defeats to New Zealand and losses against South Africa and Argentina.

“Are Australia more vulnerable than ever before? I wouldn’t say so,” Warburton wrote. “Many times in the past we have heard that it was our best chance of beating them.

“David Pocock is back and that is a massive boost for Australia. He is the most difficult No.7 I ever played against. Australia are a different team with him in it. He is a nightmare to play against.”

Like Warburton, Williams, a winger who featured in 91 Tests across a 12-year international career, sees enough in this Welsh outfit to trouble the visitors, who are coming off a 37-20 loss to the All Blacks in their most recent clash.

“However flawed a performance it was against Scotland … I’m far more convinced now that we can end that run of 13 consecutive defeats to the tiresome Wallabies because the players have got a full, tough 80 minutes under their belts,” Williams wrote in a column for The Rugby Paper.

“Warren has always said that the longer the team spends together, the better it becomes. Is three weeks together, with a game behind them, long enough to match the Aussies? I reckon it could be.”
