The last weekend of the 2020 Six Nations kicks off on Saturday with this clash between Wayne Pivac’s Wales and Gregor Townsend’s Scotland at the Parc y Scarlets. With the home side disappointingly nestled in fifth in the table, and the visitors one place above, its mainly pride at stake, however the Scots will be looking end a hoodoo that has seen them fail to register a victory on Welsh turf since 2002.

With the news on Thursday of death of Wales and Lions star JJ Williams, there’s likely to be extra motivation for the hosts to get a win in honour of the legendary winger. The match should also see Alun Wyn Jones notch up his 149th International appearance and surpass former All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw’s Test record.
