The last time the sides met, Scotland inflicted a shock 29-13 defeat on a Wales side with Rob Howley in temporary charge. It was Scotland’s first win against the men in red since 2007.
That day, Scotland gave Wales a lesson in finishing, while Finn Russell was prolific with 19 points. Howley’s men had possession and territory but didn’t have the accuracy nor the execution to trouble the Scots.
Wales endured their worst Six Nations in many a year last time out, finishing a miserable fifth with 10 points. But with Warren Gatland in charge of the side for the entire duration of the tournament this time out, they should fare a lot better.
The Kiwi mentor’s reputation has been enhanced with the 1-1 draw he achieved against the All Blacks with the British and Irish Lions. Unfortunately, he has quite a lot of injuries to contend with.
Sam Warburton, Jonathan Davies and Rhys Webb are all out for the entire tournament, while Taulupe Faletau, Dan Biggar and Dan Lydiate are ruled out for the opening few rounds.
Only twice in a total of 18 attempts have Scotland won their opening fixture of the tournament. The men in blue will need to put their slow starts behind them.
For Gregor Townsend’s side, much will depend on attacking duo Stuart Hogg and Russell. Hogg will be eager to improve on his poor record in Cardiff.
Townsend has enjoyed a brilliant start to his tenure, beating Australia twice and losing to the All Blacks by just five points. It has been a smooth handing over of the baton.
But come Saturday, he will face his first true test of Northern Hemisphere opposition, which will be an altogether different proposition.
