Following disappointing World Cup campaigns, Wales and Scotland will be keen for a strong performance in this year’s Six Nations.

Warren Gatland looks to the next generation of Welsh players, with so many usual starters unavailable, including Jac Morgan, Dan Biggar, Liam Williams, George North, Talupe Faletau, Leigh Halfpenny, and the NFL-bound Louis Rees-Zammit.

Scotland arrive in Wales with a more settled and experienced squad as they aim to record their first win in Cardiff in over 20 years.

On the back of a record win over Wales in last year’s tournament, Scotland will be aiming to get their Six Nations campaign off to a winning start, while Wales and their inexperienced squad will look to show that they’re not just here to make up the numbers in 2024.

Wales vs Scotland Betting Tips

We’ve got two Wales vs Scotland betting tips below.

Scotland to win

Scotland arrive at the Principality Stadium having lost on their last nine visits, but against an inexperienced Welsh side, Gregor Townsend’s side can break their Cardiff hoodoo.

The visitors failed to navigate the group of death at the Rugby World Cup, losing to South Africa and Ireland, but this an experienced an streetwise Scottish side that put up a record score over Wales just 12 months ago.

With the self-proclaimed ‘Messi of Rugby’, Finn Russell pulling the strings at 10 and captaining the side, plus a strong Glasgow presence in the pack, Scotland can edge out Wales and record their first win in Cardiff since 2002.

Kyle Steyn to score the first try

Duhan van der Merwe may grab the headlines when in a Scotland jersey, but fellow South African-born winger Kyle Steyn also has an excellent scoring record - bagging 10 tries in 15 appearances for his adopted country.

Steyn scored a double in Scotland’s demolition of Wales last year at Murrayfield, and at double-figure odds, he looks decent value to grab the opening try in Cardiff on Saturday.
