Wales were "pretty embarrassed" by their defeat by Ireland last Saturday, according to prop Adam Jones.
In his column on the BBC Sport site, he gave his perspective on the 23-6 thumping. He said: "It's been a tough few days in camp since the game in Ireland. We let ourselves down, we let everyone down.
"The coaches have tried to be pretty good to us by trying to take a bit of the flak and saying it was kind of their doing as well. But, we're the 15 or 23 who played the game and to totally not turn up for an international game is unacceptable. We're pretty embarrassed by it.'
Jones went on to say that fans had every right to be upset, saying "I can totally understand the disappointment of fans. Sometimes the flak you get off fans isn't always justified but this time we're pretty disappointed and totally understand where they're coming from and at the same time I can assure you that there's no one more disappointed than ourselves.'
The prop singled out a number of the Irish players for praise:
"Jonny Sexton had an outstanding game marshalling the troops and we couldn't get a foothold. As much as we tried to get Jamie Roberts and George North into the game we just couldn't manage to do it.
"Peter O'Mahony and Chris Henry in the back row were fantastic over the ball and we just didn't really do well enough. We've had a lot of soul-searching since Saturday and we're just striving to put things right. We're very disappointed in ourselves really."
