The 2018 Six Nations Championship has begun with a comprehensive Welsh win after they beat Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff.
In a match that was billed as a close encounter given Scotland’s resurgence and Wales downtown, it was anything but as Wales showed that there is still life in the dragon as they put a toothless Scotland to the sword.
The tone of the game was set within the first ten minutes with Wales dominating possession whilst holding firm with a resolute defence.
It didn’t take long for the Welsh prowess to show as Davies crossed over the whitewash in the 6 minute.
Wales further pressed home their advantage as Halfpenny added another on the 12 minute, to give them a 14 point lead at the break.
The second half seen much of the same as a poor Scotland looked already beaten, Wales added two penalties via Halfpenny before he added a third try on the 61st minute.
Evans completed the perfect performance as he added the fourth on 73rd minute to give the Welsh a crucial bonus point victory.
Scotland were given something to cheer towards the end as Horne added a late try on the 79th minute.
The surprising result now puts Wales back in the hunt for the title despite being cast as fourth favourites before the game kicked off.
