Tip Scotland - Wales
It's beginning to look as if bonus points could play a massive part in this year's Six Nations Championship unless of course Wales win the Grand Slam. They have won their first three games but only lead England by two points due to the English side's bonus points. With England likely to get a bonus point against Italy, the chapionship will go down to the final set of games. Wales have won 11 of their last 12 games against Scotland, the only loss coming at Murrayfield two years ago. Only two of their last seven away games against Scotland have been lost. Adam Beard replaces the injured Cory Hill but there's no recall for fit-again Leigh Halfpenny.
Scotland come into this game having beaten Italy but losing to Ireland at home and France in Paris leaving them fifth in the table. They will be missing backs Chris Harris and Sean Maitland for this match after both were injured last week. There are returns for Hamish Watson and WP Nel. Maitland has scored six tries in his last ten tests so his absence is a major blow for the home team. Wales have the momentum going into this game and can get a fourth win leaving them with a home game against Ireland to clinch the title.
Key points Scotland - Wales
Wales have only lost one of their last 12 games against Scotland.
