What have the coaches said?

Wales coach Wayne Pivac: "We’re all the better for the game on the weekend. It was always going to be a tough one to get us back into match mode.

"We tested the guys when they came in during the first week. Some guys tested really well and others had a bit of work to do.

"Covid has taken its toll in that respect but everyone is working really hard to try and get to where they need to be.

"That game was very good for us in a lot of respects, we’ve channelled a lot more work in certain areas this week than if we hadn’t had that game.

"As for this game, you talk about results - it’s not lost on us. We know we need a good result this weekend and we want a good performance with a win.

"It won’t be easy, Scotland are playing well, we’d be silly not to be gearing up for some wet weather and that’ll put a new twist on a home game."

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend: "It's been great to bring in quality and experience to our starting line-up with players such as Stuart, Jonny and Finn who have been involved in some high-level games in recent weeks.

"We were also encouraged by Blade's display at the weekend for Scarlets, which is a timely boost given last weekend's injury to Matt Fagerson.

"As a group we are very much looking forward to finally completing our fixture against Wales and returning to play Guinness Six Nations rugby again.

"We were highly motivated back in March, and that extra edge has come back into our training and preparations this week.

"We are expecting a physical battle against a very good side, one which we will be working hard to stay in the fight and to finish the fight in Llanelli.

"Ultimately, this game provides an opportunity for us to end this extended championship on a positive note and go into the Autumn Nations Cup with some added belief in what this group of players can achieve."
