Scotland and Wales have contested 122 rugby test matches since their first meeting in 1883. Wales have won 70 of these matches, Scotland have won 49. Between Scotland and Wales there have been three drawn matches.
Scotland ended a 10 year losing streak against Wales in the 2017 Championship with Scotland scoring 29 points, Wales 13, yet Scotland haven't won in Cardiff since 2002, let's hope this does not change in 2018.

The Welsh team consists mostly of players from the Scarlets, and with the way that they have played in Europe, hopefully Wales will win.

The Wales girls team won by one point but they were better than that: the under 20s ,with a very young side , had a convincing win. Letís hope we can make it a hat trick this afternoon

MK. With Wales win or lose. Great performance yesterday and especially the new players in the team .The back row was tremendous . Halfpenny kicked like a metronome - dead centre every time,Looks better than predicted for the 6 nations.

Yes, I thought Leigh would have been man of the match, it was good to see him back to his tip-top usual self, I was surprised when Aaron Shingler was announced.

Warren Gatland announced that the team for Saturday's match against England is to be the same line up, the only change being, George North on the bench.

The recent comments from Eddie Jones, hope they fire the 'boys' up, that will wipe the smile off that 'silly Billy's' face.

I think it showed that Jones was somewhat worried.
I read elsewhere that this will essentially be Gats teamtalk before the game.
Only 30 mins to go. Wish them luck.

I think the TMO should have beat a hasty retreat at the end of the
match, (he was the one wearing a blindfold).
As for Eddie Jones I am going to cast a spell on him, to make him change colour, brown like a toad, or orange just like he has been Tangoed silly man.
Missed Leigh Halfpenny

Wales were the better team for three quarters of the match but unfortunately they let in the sucker try in the beginning which showed up the inexperience of our back 3. George North looked good when he came on and I think he should have appeared earlier in th game.Back row was great -Sihingler had a very good game and Navidi was everywhere - should have been awarded the man of the match. Some very promising young players have emerged .By the way Wales really won 13- 12

The ref was the one sponsored by Specsavers.
All the English commentators said it was a try plus noted referee Kaplan.
How could that happen?

Milkman how gutting was that it makes me think that England can do no wrong as usual l donít think Eddie Jones did himself any favours in my opinion itís bad sportsmanship to make the comments he makes before a match .Lets hope they come up against a team that beats them and the 4th official puts his glasses on

World Rugby have now ruled that Anscombe scored and as it would probably have been converted , Wales would have won .England should acknowledge the fact publicly.and the Tmo should apologise for ruining this years competition .

Now that it has been proved that Wales in fact scored the try, I think 'they' should at least award points that are equivalent to a draw, the same amount that were awarded to England. I know this is not possible as the decision was final, which is silly what is the point of having a TMO if it is not used correctly. In the Olympic games if a gold medal winner is later found that they took a banned drug they are stripped of their medal.
I agree keanjo this has ruined the competition.
I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Eddie Jones heard the news, but there again perhaps the silly man could not care less.
COME ON WALES.

This is such a huge problem. I fancy that sweet nothing will be done since that is the easiest answer.
There are just two answers that would satisfy us-
Give equal points or
Play it again.
They cannot give us the game since even with a converted try we would be slightly behind England. (but one penalty, and we had several would have seen us win)
Let us hope it does not affect our confidence and flowing game against Ireland and France

i think i'm right in saying that we got a penalty after that incident so gained 3 points. therefore even if the try and conversion were successful we still wouldn't have won. But still an awful decision by someone who had plenty of time and lots of camera angles to look at.

You are correct Le shark, I had the same thoughts as Milkman, but I watched the match with my know all eldest son and unfortunately he he put me right, the penalty came after the said try.
