But while suffering heavy defeats against France and England - the tournament's top two teams - only second-half stutters in their opening two games meant they did not pick up more than the one win.
Twice they led at the break against both Italy and Ireland before letting their opponents back into the game in the second 40.
It was also a similar pattern of scoring against Scotland with all of their points coming before half-time, and Taylor knows it is an area for improvement ahead of this summer's World Cup.
"I wish I knew what happens in the second half. Whether we get a bit ahead of ourselves or a little bit of white line fever," said Taylor.
"It's a game of structure, the will and the desire is there, you can see it, but whether we just need to slow that down a little bit and make it a bit more structured.
"We have put some massive performances in against some of the best teams in the world. If I can take a little bit of every game and make a game out of it, we'd have a really good strong team. There's lots to work on but it is there, it's just got to come out.
"The World Cup is something we are working to, I just don't want us to lose focus of certain things, we're going to have to work very hard if we're going to go there and compete."
