Alun Wyn Jones is determined to help Wales end their tour of Australia on a high with victory in Sydney at the weekend.
The tourists came within 20 seconds of levelling the series against the Wallabies in Melbourne at the weekend only to succumb to Mike Harris' injury-time penalty and that win gave Australia an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-Test series.
Lock Jones said: "It is unfortunate to go 2-0 down in the series in that fashion, especially after we had played so well for so long, but it's done now and we have got to get back on the horse."
He added: "There was a lot to take out of a much-improved performance from last week. We had parity at the breakdown, our kicking game was improved and our defence was pretty good.
"We can be negative, dour or whatever but this is professional sport and there is no point dwelling on it.
"We have to move on and there is still history to be made by winning a game down here and that means there is still a big carrot on the end of a long stick."
Wales appeared on the verge of victory at the Etihad Stadium following tries by George North and Jonathan Davies in either half.
Leigh Halfpenny also kicked 15 points in an intriguing duel with Wallaby fly-half Berrick Barnes that saw the lead change hands seven times in the second half before Harris' last-gasp winner.
Jones said: "If it was a boxing match you would have been more than happy you got your moneys worth. It was blow for blow regards the penalties in the second half and we felt pretty comfortable with the kick-off, our scrum and the penalties. Both teams were going for penalties in the end because defences were pretty strong.
"We were pretty much in control in the last 10 and it was the case of piggy-back penalties on the field. Unfortunately they got the one in range and they took it. Had there been 20 more seconds on the clock, perhaps we could have gone up the field and done the same."
