"Their performance against England was outstanding," Gatland added.
"We watched the game and in the first five to 10 minutes you could see the intent from the team and what it meant.
"They had a couple of tough games against Scotland and France, where they had to dig really deep after a good start against Ireland.
"Well done to them and hopefully they can finish off with a good performance on Friday night against Italy."
