Stephen Jones insists Wales will not contemplate changing their style of play for the rest of the RBS 6 Nations championship, despite opening the defence of their title with a 47-13 defeat to England.
Wales stormed to the Grand Slam last year on the back of a high-tempo, attacking philosophy - but they were picked off at Twickenham on Saturday as England ran in six tries to one.
The Grand Slam and Triple Crown are gone and Wales now face the tough task of bouncing back against a Scotland side brimming with confidence after their stunning victory over tournament favourites France.
Captain Gareth Thomas had warned of "second season syndrome" before the championship kicked off, but Wales are not ready to rip up their gameplan.
Jones is confident that with another week in camp, Mike Ruddock's men can shunt their championship bid back on track against the Scots next Sunday.
"I am positive the style we play suits us and that is the way we want to play rugby. But the trouble with the way we want to play is that if we are a bit off, it can cost us dearly,'' he said.
"But we are happy with our gameplan. We all enjoy passing the ball and playing with width and tempo, but on Saturday we were just a bit off.
"We were bitterly disappointed to lose in the manner we did. Now we will study the video, find out where we went wrong, work on those negative areas and turn them into positives for next Sunday.
"We do believe in our gameplan and we believe if we can improve on aspects of our game, like the contact area, we can go well.''
Last November Wales were beaten 41-3 by New Zealand and it took them the rest of the month to recover before finishing their autumn campaign with a first win over Australia in 18 years.
The scoreline at the weekend was not dissimilar, but Jones has taken heart from Wales' performance for the first 50 minutes at Twickenham, before Martyn Williams was sin-binned and England cut loose.
And he believes Wales have it in them to hit back immediately.
"That was a better performance than the New Zealand game but we have got a big week this week. The performance next week is everything," he said.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
