“We just need to get ourselves in the right frame of mind to go to the World Cup and win that. I’m not too worried about rankings.”

Wales host Ireland at Principality Stadium this weekend in third of their four World Cup warm-up tests.

Currently holding a 0.03-point lead over the All Blacks, a loss for Warren Gatland’s side would be enough to see them fall back to second place.

Following this week’s clash, Ireland and Wales will play a return fixture next week in Dublin, while the All Blacks will face Tonga in Hamilton on September 7.
