Wales 10-14 Scotland, Parc y Scarlets

Scotland finished the Six Nations tournament on a high as they defeated Wales 10-14 in the final round at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday.

The win has taken the Dark Blues to 14 points with three wins from five games while Wales' struggling start under Wayne Pivac continued as they finish fifth after their fourth win from five matches.

This was also Scotland's first win in Wales since 2002 and it came in the game where Alun Wyn Jones broke Richie McCaw's world record to become the most capped Test player.

Finn Russell on his first start since the World Cup last year started the proceedings with a 10th minute penalty goal but the fly-half left the field in the 32nd minute with a groin injury. The setback for Scotland came after Rhys Carre scored the opening try for the home side in the 31st minute followed by Dan Biggar's conversion.

As the half-time was approaching, Hastings with his second penalty goal ensured the gap between the two teams came down to one point at the end of the opening half.

Wales also had their injury setback with Dan Biggar leaving the field in the 43rd minute and the start of the final quarter saw Stuart McInally dotting down to give the visitors a four-point lead. Leigh Halfpenny with a 66th minute penalty goal making the scoreline 10-11 but Stuart Hogg's three-pointer at the closing stage sealed a thrilling win for the Dark Blues.
