Aaron Shingler hails 'massive performance' as Wales beat Scotland in Six Nations

Taking on Wales on their own patch at the start of a Six Nations campaign is going to be a far more intense proposition.

Flankers Josh Navidi and Aaron Shingler were huge, justifying the decision to select Lion Justin Tipuric as a replacement, and the tight five did the dirty work but also threw in some cute touches.

Steff Evans let Alun Wyn-Jones' pass slip from his fingers as he failed to round off what would have been a sensational try.

"The reason that hasn't happened before is the form of other players in the squad and that shows the depth we have in the front row at the moment".

"It is hard to find positives, Wales were superior today and we have a lot of work to do". "It's going to be a different challenge definitely but it's one that we are looking forward to".

"We went to Murrayfield previous year with a view of being dominant, which we were for large parts of the game, but a couple of scrums went down, we brought the referee into it, and then some 50-50 calls went against us".

It was a little to early to say game over but Wales were on the brink and an increasingly shambolic Scotland and the killer blow came after 62 minutes when Halfpenny was put over down the right following some lusty charges on the line.

"They've beaten us previous year and they're favourites coming to Cardiff and we'll look forward to that".

Michigan State University has also been accused of covering up the years of sexual abuse while Nassar worked there. Rick Snyder is considering action against the MSU Board of Trustees, according to a Friday report.

"But when the referee asked the TMO 'any reason I cannot award the try?' then surely they could go back to the pass".

"It's going to be a great spectacle and people are probably expecting a try-fest".

Former Sale Sharks hooker Scott Lawson is named amongst the replacements.

And there were only five minutes to the break when Wales came under sustained pressure for the first time, facing a five-metre attacking Scottish scrum, but a handling error in midfield thwarted the Scots and Wales surged upfield through centre Hadleigh Parkes' lengthy touch-finder.

Ali Price and Finn Russell form a risky half back partnership.

Baldwin said via social media: "It's not the way I saw my second week back in Wales training camp but that's sport".

"The way Warren and his team have been coached has been very successful, so I'd be surprised if they changed that". Scotland assistant coach Mike Blair pointed out during the week that November's opposition had sat off in defence and allowed the boys in blue a bit more room than they are expecting during the next seven weeks, which will be dominated by ferocious competition for the ball at source and breakneck line-speed whenever a team tries to go wide.

"They have picked a lot of Scarlets players and the Scarlets style is different".
