Wales Women captain Siwan Lillicrap has challenged her team to "go to another level" and complete an autumn clean sweep against Canada on Sunday.

Number eight Lillicrap has skippered Wales to back-to-back victories over Japan and South Africa so far this November with Canada, third in World Rugby's women's rankings, their last opponents.

After a 23-5 win over Japan in their first game, Wales faced a daunting six-day turnaround for their second match with South Africa. It was a challenge they passed with flying colours.

A 29-19 victory was achieved thanks to a hat-trick of tries from hooker Carys Phillips in what was her first Test in the red of Wales for two years.

Scrum-half Ffion Lewis also crossed while Elinor Snowsill kicked three conversions and a penalty.

"We absolutely dominated the first 20 minutes against South Africa," Lillicrap said. "The most encouraging thing for me was the performance and how we ground out the win.

"There were maybe opportunities we didn't take, but we are still new to this journey and there were some very good individual performances. We've got the results and we'll go again for this week.

"It's exciting to see what we can work on for Canada. It was a physical performance against South Africa, we worked hard, and put our bodies on the line."

Wales ended a two-year wait for a win by beating the Japanese and then backed it up against South Africa, with Lillicrap confident there is more to come ahead of the Six Nations and World Cup.

"We've made a huge improvement and a huge step-up," said Lillicrap. "All the girls have got smiles on their faces, but the most important thing is we can get better and that's exciting. We're just going to get better and better every week.

"Carys threw well and for her third try especially she fronted up to get over the line. She played really well. Carys really delivered much-needed physicality to the side and was a deserved player of the match.

"Credit to her for that. Canada is going to be a different test altogether. We're probably looking at a combination of the physicality of South Africa and the work rate and execution of Japan.

"We've got to go to another level of performance. Our big work on is executing the opportunities we create. South Africa was a big win for us.

"We have gone two years without a win so to have two on the bounce in less than six days is very positive.

"The way we start games now on the front foot is a huge improvement on where we've been before. I'm excited for another challenge and how we can build from here.

"This campaign is going to be hugely valuable for us. Now I'm excited to see what we can do against the third best team in the world.

"It's going to be a challenge but the sort of challenge we want as a squad."

Wales name their team on Friday.
