ales host Scotland in the opening Six Nations fixture of the weekend when Wales captain Dan Biggar will join an exclusive club when he runs out for his 100th international.

Scotland made a winning start by beating England at Murrayfield but needed a strong quarter. Wales were well beaten by Ireland in Dublin and must improve quickly to keep their title defence alive.

Wales are bidding to avoid losing their opening two games of a Six Nations campaign for the first time since 2007..

Wales vs Scotland prediction

Scotland to win.
