Wayne Pivac has challenged Wales to deliver the full 80-minute performance when the 2021 Guinness Six Nations front-runners take on Italy in Rome on Saturday.
Wales toppled defending champions England 40-24 last time out to secure the Triple Crown, having opened their campaign with tight victories over Ireland and Scotland.
But while the 2019 Grand Slam winners remain on course to repeat their clean sweep from two years ago, Pivac acknowledged that there is still much room for improvement.
And the Wales head coach wants to see the complete performance from first whistle to last from his players when they visit the Stadio Olimpico to face the Azzurri.
“For us it is about the performance and we are not overly happy with the full 80 minutes yet. We are doing some things very well in games,” Pivac said.
“I think most people would agree we are improving in different areas, but we have still got a long way to go.
“This team is building a bit of momentum and we want to stay with that momentum and probably reward the players that have done the bulk of it so far.
“We have talked about how we want to play the game. There are two very important games to go and it is about getting results. Don’t expect us to be throwing it around willy-nilly.

“We have got a job to do and we have got to get on top of this Italian side before you see any of that sort of razzle-dazzle.
“It is important we use the 80 minutes and develop our game we want to against all opposition.”
Italy are yet to get off the mark in the 2021 Championship after losing their opening three games to France, England and Ireland but Pivac is well aware of the danger they possess.
And despite Wales achieving their highest points tally against England in Round 3, Pivac said his Grand Slam-chasing team have shown no signs of getting carried away.
“I think that message was being delivered by the players and that started in the changing room after the game against England,” he said.
“What the England game has done is put us in a great position, but we don’t want to undo the good work that has been done in the first three matches.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to go out there and continue to work hard. We have had a good nine days since the last match and we know our side.
“Once the injuries were all settled, I think internally what we wanted to do was name the team nice and early so we have a good build-up and that’s certainly what we’ve done.
“It is about us maintaining the momentum that is building and the confidence that comes with that. I don’t think we would want to slow that momentum down with a lot of changes at this point in time.
“We think this is the best way to tackle this game.”
