- Wales crashed out of the Rugby World Cup with a poor display against Argentina which was a huge disappointment having gone through the pool phase with a 100% record.
- The Welsh hammered Australia during that run to the quarter-final but big improvements are needed if they are to get this campaign off to a positive start.
- Scotland failed to advance out of a tough group at the RWC with defeat to Ireland in their final contest sealing their fate but they will not be too deterred by that effort.
- With three wins from their five matches in last year’s Six Nations, there is a lot to like about this side and they will be eyeing further progression this time around.

Wales and Scotland will both be eyeing the victory in their opening game of the Six Nations but it is the away side that are likely to be the more confident of the two. Wales are still trying to find their identity and appear to be in transition with new faces coming into the squad. For Scotland, they have made big strides over the past few years and having hammered Wales in last year’s competition, they can get off to a good start here by claiming the victory.
TIP: Scotland to win
