Wales and Scotland continue their Six Nations campaign at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday 13 February.

Where to watch

Wales vs Scotland kicks off at 4.50pm (GMT) with live coverage available via ITV. Live commentary is also available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


After leaving Dublin with a draw in the first game of the tournament, Wales' bid to deny Ireland a third consecutive Six Nations triumph got off to a positive start, although Warren Gatland will be hoping to see a more cohesive display from his side after a rather frustrating afternoon at the Aviva Stadium.

Eight victories on the bounce – leaving Gatland undefeated against today's opposition as head coach – means Wales should have the perfect opportunity to find their rhythm against Scotland. But their meeting in this competition last season saw the gap between the two sides significantly reduced when just three points separated the two at Murrayfield – a telling glimpse of what that Scotland side would go on to achieve at the Rugby World Cup.

Their head coach, Vern Cotter, has opted to make just one change to the side that fell 15-9 to England in their opening game. Matt Scott drops out with an injury and is replaced by Saracens centre Duncan Taylor. The biggest injury boost ahead of kick off comes for the Welsh camp, however, with Dan Biggar passed fit despite his injury in the opening minute of the draw in Dublin.

What the coaches say

Warren Gatland: "The medics thought that it was a three-to-five-week injury. But the scan came back clear and he's [Dan Biggar] worked really hard. He's made a pretty miraculous recovery really.

"There's an opportunity in terms of those players that started the game last weekend to make sure they start the game well this weekend. We could have started with some of those players on the bench but we felt there was a chance in terms giving them another chance to go and potentially put things right."

Vern Cotter: "This group have worked exceptionally hard this week to improve their accuracy under pressure after a frustrating opening game against England. We created opportunities that could have been capitalised upon and converted into points.

"As a team we know we can perform better and believe we're capable of making improvements all over the park. We know that Wales in Cardiff will not be easy but our focus is on improving our attacking and defensive mindset."
