Same again for Scotland

By Ali Donnelly.

Scotland coach Gary Parker has kept faith with the team who beat France last weekend by naming an unchanged line-up to take on Wales this weekend in round two of the womens rugby 6 Nations.

Last weekend's game saw player of the match , Lucy Millard, deliver a brace of tries in the Scots' 10-8 defeat of the French, with full back Celia Hawthorn making her debut, Veronica Fitzpatrick reaching her 50th cap and Donna Kennedy her 104th cap appearance for Scotland.

All feature against Wales, in an unchanged line-up from that which took the field against the French.

Scotland havent beaten Wales since 2005 but will go into this match with confidence of breaking their run of luck against a team who lost 31-0 to England last weekend.

Wales won the Triple Crown last year having defeated Scotland along with Ireland and England.

Parker said: "The attitude and commitment of all the players over the French weekend was outstanding, and this has to be used as a springboard, for us all, as players and coaches, to drive forward our standards and expectations.

"We can't be happy just to win the odd big game once in a while. We need to show an urgency to succeed at all times."
