Last time Scotland faced Wales they were beaten 51-3 after an early red card for Hogg. Greig Laidlaw said “last time we played we where on the wrong end of a thumping”
The recent match against France resulted in a 15-8 loss that Laidlaw said was “probably a chance missed” and a victory on Sunday against Wales is necessary to keep moral up for Vern Cotters squad.
“If we are to do anything in this tournament, we need to win this weekend” said Laidlaw “We need to learn for our mistakes from France and make it tough for the Welsh side,”
Only one change has been made to the Welsh squad. Following his recent concussion, winger George North won’t be on the pitch, with Liam Williams taking his place. They are very similar players so not much is expested to change in the way they play.
“We need to stop their go-forward and be aggressive at the breakdown and the tackle contest, make sure we are fronting up and not giving them easy gain-line”.
“If we do that, it take a big part of their game away”
