Faletau set on making Six Nations history

Toby Faletau helped create British & Irish Lions history against Australia this summer – and he believes he can write his name into the record books with Wales after targeting another Six Nations gong next year.

The No.8 made a huge impression in the third and decisive Test down under as the Lions tasted series success for the first time in 16 years.

Things did not go so well for Wales however as they narrowly lost out to the Qantas Wallabies at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday – but Faletau is not one for dwelling on the past.

And with the opportunity to become the first-ever nation to secure a third successive Six Nations title in 2014, the 23-year-old could be in line for another achievement already in his fledgling career.

“The Six Nations is the only thing we can look at now and try to make history,” he said. “We can’t change what has happened. We just have to look forward now.

“But I think there were a lot of positives to take from the autumn and to take into the Six Nations.

“We had a lot of boys coming in because of early injuries and it was good for them to get the experience.”
