Six Nations 2017: Scotland 29-13 Wales


A spirited second-half performance at Murrayfield earned Scotland their first Six Nations win over Wales since 2007.

For all their superior physicality in the first half, Wales led by only 13-9 at the interval, Liam Williams rounding off a slick move for their sole try.

Scotland were dominant thereafter, with Tommy Seymour and Tim Visser crossing the line and stand-off Finn Russell earning 19 points with his kicking.

The Scots’ success ended Wales’ run of four consecutive wins in Edinburgh.

The result put Vern Cotter’s team top of the championship table before Ireland’s 19-9 win over France saw the Scots drop back to second. For Wales, though, it was a second loss in three matches in this year’s campaign.
