Good tactical kicking led to a strong field position to set up Scotland’s first try. 6

The Glasgow wing showed strong running and decision making. 6

13. Huw Jones

Should have done better in defence and was a weak link for Scotland. He missed the tackle on George North which allowed the Wales wing to score the opening try, made a similar error for the second and did not get to show off his attacking skills. 4

12. Alex Dunbar

Broke well and showed good strength and pace as Scotland favoured a running game. 6

11. Lee Jones

Made a try-saving tackle on North early in the match and keen to come off his wing. 6

10. Adam Hastings

Showed no sign of nerves as he landed his first points for Scotland from the penalty tee and slotted an excellent conversion. Good maturity and vision with his tactical kicking. 6

9. Ali Price

Nippy service and a solid game from the Scotland scrum-half. 6

1. Allan Dell

Put under pressure by the inexperienced Wales front row at scrum time. 6

2. Stuart McInally

Bundled over the line after a catch and drive to score Scotland’s first try. 7

3. Willem Nel

Good work in the breakdown, especially in launching a Scotland attack early in the first half. Coughed up the ball at key moments in the loose. 6

4. Ben Toolis

A steady performance from the Australian-born lock. 6

5. Jonny Gray

Struggled in the loose as Scotland tried to build momentum. Driven towards the line but could not score a try for the visitors as it was chalked off for a double movement. 6

6. Jamie Ritchie

His huge tackle on Wales prop Smith paved the way for Scotland’s first points from the boot of Hastings. 6

7. Hamish Watson

A solid game for the Scotland flanker. 6

8. Ryan Wilson

Worked well with Gray in the loose. 6


Scotland changed their entire front row midway through the second half and the fresh legs almost snared a second try for the Scots, through Peter Horne. Darcy Graham won his first cap.
