Scotland vs Wales, Six Nations 2023: Kick-off time, TV channel, where to watch, team news, line-ups, odds


Cotland will be keen to make it two out of two in the Six Nations as they host Wales at Murrayfield on Saturday.

A stunning opening win at Twickenham got Scotland off to a good start and they hold the Calcutta Cup again, but now they must defy recent history.

In 2021 and 2022, Scotland beat England in their first Six Nations game before losing to Wales a week later, putting an immediate halt to the momentum that had been taken back.

Gregor Townsend’s side will think it’s a Wales side to take after being beaten 34-10 by Ireland in Cardiff. Even Warren Gatland seems unable to turn the situation around in the short amount of time given to him.

A victory here for the Welsh would put things back on track, while Scotland despair of arriving in Paris in a fortnight in the thick of the battle for the top of the standings.

Scotland-Wales kick-off date, time and venue

Scotland v Wales is the second game of the Six Nations on Saturday, after Ireland took on France in a blockbuster clash earlier in the day.

The game is due to start at 4.45pm GMT on Saturday February 11, at Murrayfield in Edinburgh.

Scotland vs Wales Team News

Scotland are boosted by the availability of Zander Fagerson and Hamish Watson, with the forwards both fit again after missing out on Twickenham’s win over England.

“We have a lot of fit players in those positions so competition will be tough in those departments,” said scrum coach Peter De Villiers.

Luke Crosbie performed well against England but could make room for Watson, while Andy Christie dropped out of the squad with a dead leg.

Alun Wyn Jones is fit for Wales, although he was initially ruled out. Having initially failed an assessment for a head injury, Welsh medical staff have now ruled it to be a neck injury, with the lock showing no signs of concussion.

Tomas Francis is set to miss after facing Ireland with a calf injury, but George North is set to overcome the knocks he received last weekend.

Scotland vs Wales Prediction

A decisive victory followed by a stumbling performance has been a regular theme for Scotland, and their task is to ensure that a hat-trick of wins against England is not followed by a hat-trick of defeats against England. Wales.

They can draw a lot of confidence from their ruthless display at Twickenham, while Townsend insisted his squad “can grow more” in the coming weeks.

History is not necessarily on their side – Scotland have never won their first two Six Nations matches and they have never beaten Warren Gatland.

What is on their side is a Welsh side who suffered badly in Cardiff last week, although Ireland, the best team in the world, will be far too good for most teams.

Gatland went for experience in the opener, but a number of those trusted players looked past their best. It would arguably be the most disappointing of all recent defeats Scotland have suffered against Wales, but they should be sure to emerge victorious.

Victory for Scotland, by 10 points.
