We take a look at how Wales and Scotland players finished out of 10 in the hosts’ 20-17 victory in Saturday’s Six Nations clash at the Principality Stadium…

Wales

Liam Williams: The full-back impressed as Wales’ last line of defense and was also a threat in attack, producing a solid all-round performance. 8/10

Alex Cuthbert: Made his first Six Nations appearance for five years and he relished the contest, having a possible try ruled out by the TMO. seven

Owen Watkins: Had a brilliant first break to give Wales a boost after a strong start from Scotland and was a solid and reliable performer. seven

Nick Tomkins: One of Wales’ best performers in the heavy defeat to Ireland in Dublin last weekend and he backed that up with another determined effort. seven

Louis Rees-Zammit: The winger was far more involved than he was in Dublin, repeatedly coming in looking for work. seven

Dan Biggar: A heroic effort in his 100th Test for Wales and the British and Irish Lions by the Wales captain, who continued after taking a knock to the knee and kicking in four penalties and a drop-goal. 9

Taine Basham: Lucky to avoid the penalty for a late shoulder driven challenge on Sam Skinner, but his overall performance was again of a high standard. seven

Jacques Morgan: He excelled on his Test debut and forged a strong partnership with fellow flanker Basham. A great effort that was rewarded with the honor of winning the Doddie Weir Cup. 8

Chris Harris: He was resolute in defense but could not penetrate determined opponents from the Welsh midfield with the ball in hand. 6

Sione Tuipulotu: Always eager to have the ball in hand and win on the line when he returns to the starting XV. 6

Duhan van der Merwe: A flurry from the touchline helped set up Graham’s try, but otherwise there wasn’t enough of a threat from the giant wing. 6

Finn Russell: Good game management and a 12-point kick, but his late yellow card for a deliberate segue proved costly. 6

Finn Russell had a mixed afternoon

Ali Price: Animated around the fringes and spotted space to start a smooth move that led to Graham scoring. seven

Stuart McInally: Did well in the early exchanges but made his way like the rest of his front row colleagues just after the break. seven

Grant Gilchrist: Earned the honor of leading Scotland on his 50th cap and produced a solid change. seven

Sam Skiner: Called to replace Jamie Ritchie, injured, he did not lack effort and commitment. 6

Hamish Watson: Produced a typically all-action display in attack and defense, and always tried to get on the front foot. seven

Matt Fagerson: Carried the ball well early on, but couldn’t get rid of a shot and was taken off before halftime. 6

Replacements: Fagerson’s departure was a big loss after his man of the match win against England, but substitute Magnus Bradbury didn’t let Scotland down. 6
