Wales wing Alex Cuthbert says they will have to stop Australia full-back Israel Folau if they are to have a chance against the Wallabies on Saturday.
Folau can also play on the wing and has been a sensation since switching from Rugby League 12 months ago, scoring nine tries in his first 14 Tests.
Cuthbert, who will take his place in the Wales side after recovering from an ankle injury, says Folau will be the biggest threat at the Millennium Stadium and will need keeping an eye on.
“He’s the danger man, the man in form and probably one of the best players at the moment in rugby,” Cuthbert said.
“He’s improving every game and he’s the player we’ve got to mark closely and obviously try and keep him away from the ball as much as possible.
“He’s been managing to get the ball a lot and putting Australia on the front foot so if we can stop him then I think we can try and stop Australia.”
The Australian camp have said they are fired up for this one as they look to finish their tour on a high and Cuthbert admits it will be a difficult task.
“They’re a quality side and you can never keep them down,” he added.
“It’s going to be a tough game at the weekend.
“They’re going to look to finish their tour with a win against us so it’s going to be a big battle.”
