Wales captain Sam Warburton says they must bounce back from the defeat to South Africa by beating Argentina, Tonga and Australia.

Wales suffered a 24-15 defeat against the Springboks on Saturday, much to the disappointment of Warburton, who expects his side to win all games they play in.

“We’ve been working too hard – we’re too good. I’m expecting three out of four for this autumn,” said Warburton.

“I wouldn’t have been jumping for joy [if we’d beaten the Springboks] because that’s what should just happen.

“That’s what we should expect. We shouldn’t be bouncing around and celebrating like it’s Christmas.”

Wales have not won a home autumn international for four years and next up is the visit of Argentina to the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

The Pumas won in Cardiff last year but have struggled since and lost to England 31-12 at the weekend.

Tonga then arrive before the big one against Australia at the end of the month, when Warburton is determined to set the record straight after playing in seven of eight successive defeats to the Wallabies.

“It doesn’t annoy anybody more than me,” he added. “I’m getting fed up of it now.”

Wales do have their injury problems ahead of the game with Argentina as Jonathan Davies picked up an injury at the weekend, while there are also doubts over head prop Adam Jones and wing Liam Williams.
