Since then, Wales have successfully defended their RBS 6 Nations title while a host of their players were part of the successful British & Irish Lions squad this summer.
With Warren Gatland back at the helm this autumn, Wales host South Africa, Argentina, Tonga and Australia – and openside flanker Tipuric is desperate to make up for last year’s disappointment.
“South Africa showed in the last game of the Rugby Championship against New Zealand that they are able to spread the ball, along with providing an enormous physical threat," said Tipuric.
"In terms of the back row, Francois Louw is right up there as one of the best players I've come up against. Wales have the potential to beat South Africa but we will have to be clinical in everything we do.
"After South Africa, we certainly won't be underestimating Tonga who have improved so much over the last few years. Whoever plays against them will have to be spot on to come out on top.
"Argentina will be bruised after the Rugby Championship, particularly after their heavy defeat to Australia in the final game, but they will bounce back and are always extremely competitive.
"We had a poor autumn last year so we want to put that right this year and Australia to finish will be huge.
“After the Lions' series win, they will have most at stake, but they have a new coaching team and showed in beating Argentina 54-17 in the last round of the Rugby Championship what they are capable of."
