Wales moved one step closer to a Six Nations grand slam and extended a national record winning streak to 13 matches on Saturday, beating Scotland 18-11 thanks to first-half tries from Josh Adams and Jonathan Davies.

After dominating the first half against an injury-hit and error-prone Scotland, Wales had to survive a stirring second-half comeback as the hosts brought a previously subdued Murrayfield crowd to their feet with a score from Darcy Graham.

Gilchrist was held up over the line by Parkes, and then a rolling maul drew in the Welsh defense, a Finn Russell inside pass to Byron McGuigan put the replacement wing in space, and replacement fullback Adam Hastings sent Graham diving into the right corner.

Wales returns home to play defending champion Ireland for the Grand Slam next weekend in Cardiff, relieved to get out of Edinburgh still unbeaten after four rounds.

Replacement Hamish Watson was to the fore in the Scottish comeback, bringing some of the carrying power that Scotland had lacked in the first half with a series of bruising charges.

Eddie Jones' side are now a point behind Wales going into the weekend's action, with England able to win the Championship if Ireland beat the Welsh.

"We need to make sure we are on our game and not get involved in little scuffles".

Last month, he also spent three nights in jail after he was charged in four sex-abuse cases and failed to post bond right away. The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and he was set free shortly afterwards.

"It has been a tough week for the boys mentally but they dug deep and showed some character".

I don't know who was talking about Grand Slams but Scotland did a job on us in 2017 and they nearly did it again in the second half. "This group have forgotten how to lose and hopefully that continues next week".

And Scotland started brightly, sourcing quick ball through their half-backs Price and Russell, but they lost a promising attacking position when skipper Stuart McInally was penalised for foul play.

Wales may be without Liam Williams for the Principality clash after the full-back left the pitch before half-time with a shoulder injury.

Scotland, meanwhile, faces the prospect of ending a disappointing campaign with a solitary win unless they can inflict a shock defeat against England in its final fixture.

"We're looking to go there and get the win".

And a second try arrived 10 minutes before the break, with Wales patiently going through an impressive phase-game before it was all rounded off by an easy finish for Davies.
