Wales too good for Scotland at Murrayfield

Wales too good for Scotland at Murrayfield

Wales swept aside the challenge of Scotland26-13 at Murrayfield on Saturday as they got their Six Nations defence off to an impressive start. Coach Warren Gatland refused to get carried away with the win though, insisting they still have plenty of work to do.

"This has been a tough place for Wales to come over the years, so I have to be happy with the result.

"We have put ourselves in a good position, but we are bearing in mind that there are four games to go - and only a six-day gap before facing England. That will be very physically demanding for the guys."

"I was delighted with the accuracy of most of our play, but there is also plenty for work on, Gatland stressed.

"It was also important for us to maintain our discipline, and - other than the late yellow card for Martyn Williams - we did that."

Despite many missed place kicks, Gatland wasnt concerned.

Maybe it did put us under a little pressure at times, but that will be sorted out."

Tom Shanklin, Alun-Wyn Jones, Leigh Halfpenny, and Shane Williams all scored for Wales, with Max Evans grabbing Scotland's only try.

Welsh powerhouse centre Jamie Roberts, named man of the match, said he was looking forward to playing England at the Millennium Stadium.

"It was an absolutely fantastic performance first half - they had us on the edge of our seats at the end but fair play to Scotland they made us work hard," said Roberts.

"I'm looking forward to next week - bring on England."
