If anybody epitomises the calm confidence within the Wales squad, it is full-back Liam Williams.

After all, the Saracens back has already won Champions Cup, Gallagher Premiership and a Grand Slam in 2019.

Now there is only one thing left to add to his glittering CV for this calendar year.

And Williams is not shy of predicting what he thinks Wales can achieve in the next two weeks as they prepare to face France in the quarter-finals, following four wins from four in Group D.

“There’s only one thing we think we can do and that is win [the World Cup],” said Williams.

“Four wins from four games so far has been good and exactly what we aimed for at the start of the campaign.

“I wouldn’t say we’ve got the easy route to the World Cup but we’ve got France next and we need to beat them to be looking at the bigger picture. I then think we can go on and win it.”

Previous Welsh sides and individual players would have been unwilling to make such bold statements.
