GEORGIA Evans believes a testing Six Nations campaign means Wales Women don't have to start from 'ground zero' when plotting their route to the World Cup.

Warren Abrahams' side finished last in the Championship for the second successive year after being drubbed by France and Ireland before a spirited display in Scotland.

Wales put in a much-improved performance, with wings Lisa Neumann and Caitlin Lewis scoring tries, but it wasn't enough for victory in Glasgow.

They are 10th in the world rankings and have plenty of work to do if they are to be competitive at the delayed World Cup, when they are in a group that contains New Zealand and Australia.

Evans led Wales in Scotland in the absence of injured captain Siwan Lillicrap and the centre believes the squad will reap the rewards of a challenging campaign when they head to New Zealand in 2022.

"The World Cup is the pinnacle of everyone's rugby career, we all really want to get there. I think now it's about re-setting.

"It's been an emotional campaign, it's been a tough one but actually we can all go away from this knowing that we put a performance in to be proud of at the end.

"I think we will all go back to our clubs now, reset and aim to finish the rugby season on a high.

"Individually we've got to look at ourselves and really push forward to make sure that when we come back into camp we don't start from ground zero – we need to start from where we left off and we build on the performance rather than going back to the very beginning.

"There's lots to look forward to, it will be exciting to see what happens next."

Abrahams has also learnt from a first campaign.

“It was a tough start but the biggest thing for me and the coaching team is that we’ve learned some incredible lessons,” he said. “We’ve got some confirmation of where we are as a group and what we need to do.
