Priestland wants Australia scalp
Wales fly-half Rhys Priestland says the pressure is on the Six Nations champions to beat Australia at least once this summer.
Warren Gatland's men secured the Grand Slam this year on the back of an impressive World Cup where they narrowly missed out on a place in the final.
The Welsh are now set to travel Down Under for a three-game Test series against the reigning Tri-Nations holders in the hope they can secure a first win against one of the major southern hemisphere nations since 2008.
The last time Wales beat one of the powerhouses from the southern hemisphere was in 2008 when they got the better of the Wallabies 21-18 in Cardiff.
However, since then Wales have failed to live up to the hype against Australia, losing the last three matches, including Shane Williams farewell clash in December.
Given Wales' recent success Priestland says there is now an expectation amongst Welsh supporters that they should beat a southern hemisphere team, increasing the pressure on the latest touring party.
"There is added pressure now because every time we go on the field, people expect us to win," said Priestland.
"The nation wants a southern hemisphere scalp as well and, hopefully, we can get one before the autumn."
