Six Nations hopes against Scotland

Unbeaten Welsh squad gear up for Murrayfield - and success at last for Wales's Women

Wales head into their Six Nations clash with Scotland this afternoon, chasing the grand slam dream.

Gatland's men are raring to go after a break last weekend and Centre Jonathan Davies said the side are in a good place:

"The squad is very tight, we've got momentum and we're making sure that we keep that. There is confidence in it - I  think the squad is reacting well to the expectation of going and winning games now and I think its a good place to be."

But Davies said they were't expecting an easy ride from a team hungry for victory:

"They've made a few changes. They'll be hurting from what happened over in France so they'll be looking to make sure they start well, get the crowd behind them and make sure that they put us under pressure."

Warren Gatland's side are without the injured Cory Hill for the game at Murrayfield, while Scotland's head coach Gregor Townsend has dropped captain Greig Laidlaw to the bench. 

There was also Six Nations success for Wales' Women in Scotland last night -Wales ran out 17 points to 15.

Beth Lewis and Siwan Lillicrap scored tries for Rowland Phillips' side.
