Who Will Win?

On Saturday 3rd February, Wales face Scotland at the Principality Stadium as part of the Six Nations.

Wales will enter this match as the favourites. After all, they performed admirably at the Rugby World Cup and they reached the quarter-final stage. Plus, they’ve looked handy ever since Warren Gatland returned to the fold as head coach.

That said, Scotland cannot be discounted. Although they were eliminated at the pool stage of the Rugby World Cup, they were in the ‘Pool of Death’ and they still secured two wins from their four matches.

Think you know which way Wales vs Scotland will go? Vote in our poll.

Head-to-Head

In these last five meetings between the two sides, Wales have won three times while Scotland have won twice. During this time, the points differential has also been close. Wales have scored 16 points on average, while Scotland have scored 20.

History also tells us that Wales vs Scotland games tend to be back-and-forth. After all, the team that has scored the first try has only won 40% of the last five matches between the two sides. Plus, home advantage isn’t too important, as the home team has only won 40% of the last five matches.

Team Form

Wales and Scotland both enter this game in reasonable form. Wales recently made it to the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup, where they were surprisingly beaten by Argentina. But, during the pool stage, Warren Gatland’s men showed flashes of brilliance. This was particularly the case against Australia, who they dispatched 40-6.

Meanwhile, Scotland have won three of their last five matches, including an 84-0 victory over Romania. Their two defeats came against Ireland and South Africa, who are arguably the two best teams in the world today.

Below our team form guide, you can see in-depth stats about how the two sides have performed in their last five games, including stats about the number of tries they’ve scored, their overall points difference and the number of times they’ve scored the first try. We’ve also detailed how often each team has scored the first points in a game and how often they’ve won the race to 10 points.

Player Head-to-Head

Big Six Nations clashes like Wales vs Scotland are usually tight affairs. As a result, winning individual matchups is crucial. After all, one moment of brilliance or one missed tackle often decides a game like this.

With this in mind, here’s how Gareth Anscombe and Ben Healy have performed in recent Wales vs Scotland clashes. Could either of these stars of the game produce a stunning performance that decides the match for their country?

Other Fixtures
