• Wales smash 14-man Scots

    Wales finished their Six Nations campaign on a high with a 51-3 win against Scotland in Cardiff.

    Scotland fullback Stuart Hogg was red-carded in the 23rd minute for a dangerous shoulder charge on Dan Biggar after the flyhalf had kicked.

    At that stage, Wales were leading just 10-3, but against 14 men they ran riot, scoring another six tries, with George North and Jamie Roberts both getting a double.

    However, the win was mere consolation for the Welsh, who after suffering defeats to Ireland and England have lost their Six Nations crown.
