Welsh were beaten 40-3 by Harlequins on Friday, following their opening-day 13-38 defeat by Leicester.

Welsh next host Exeter at the Kassam Stadium and Jones is keen to see some improvement from his side.

"We all appreciate that we need to grow as a team and it is another step for us to learn about each other," he said.

"There will be a lot more tough days to come but there will be a lot more positive days as well.

"We have to make sure that the plan we've got is the correct one and that we are working towards being as accurate as we can be."

Jones added: "We need to improve in lots of areas obviously. People put you under pressure and they make you ask questions of yourself.

"For us the big disappointment is we got into field areas but we failed to win possession to put pressure on the opposition to register some points and to only score three is a fair reflection."
