Wales lock Luke Charteris has conceded that they might have “got carried away” in their narrow 17-13 win over Fiji in Cardiff on Saturday.

With the All Blacks looming large on the horizon, few Welsh players delivered performances which suggested they should be in the starting line-up against the world champions in Cardiff on Saturday.

“We are disappointed with the performance,” said Charteris.

“We got the win, which in the past we maybe have been guilty of not doing, so that is the first thing you will take.

“It is frustrating because we had a good week in training, and maybe we got carried away with who we were playing, trying too many off-loads and throwing the ball around.

“Credit to them, they were good in the contact, but that is a negative to us because we needed to retain possession.

“When we did, we put them under pressure all the time.”
