It has been five straight losses for the team crowned Kings of the North at the beginning of the year, with a 0-3 series defeat against the Wallabies followed up by back-to-back home defeats against Argentina and Samoa.
Warburton said the mood and general feeling in the camp was something that few of the playing group had ever been a part of – with the peaks of a World Cup third placed playoff and a Grand Slam seeming like a distant memory.
“It's been five Tests on the bounce now we have lost,” last weekend’s benched captain said.
“I haven't experienced that before.”
“It is unusual, and it will be a test now for the boys to see who the tough ones are. We will front-up at training on Monday determined to get it right. I am sure everybody will have the same mindset and we will all be on the same page.”
He said that winning made everything easier, and that this slump was merely a test which Wales need to emerge from.
“It's easy when you win,” he said.
“This is a test for a lot of the players and a lot of the leaders of the squad to make sure we put things right. We are all in this together. I think the players are letting ourselves down. It is something we will all analyse together, and it's the same when you are doing well and winning games.”
