- Scotland win opening two Six Nations matches for first time
- Head coach pays tribute to Doddie Weir after milestone victory
The plaudits of an unprecedented two wins from two in the Six Nations were still ringing in his ears, but Gregor Townsend is more interested in gearing up for Scotland’s next two matches: France in Paris in a fortnight, followed by Ireland back at Murrayfield in a month.
“It feels like an improved performance,” Scotland’s coach said of this record 35-7 win over Wales. “If it was a seven out of 10 last week [against England at Twickenham], it’s moved up to an eight, and we’ll have to improve again. The next two teams that we play are ranked one and two in the world. We’ll have to get to nine out of 10 to beat them.”
