Scotland player ratings v Wales
15 Stuart Hogg: Produced a moment of inspiration to set up Tim Visser for the crucial second try. Warren Gatland will of been very impressed. 8.5/10
14 Tommy Seymour: Sublime. His superb finish kicked off a superb second half from the Scots 7/10
13 Huw Jones: Struggled at times but give his all. 6/10
12 Alex Dunbar: Stood up to the brutal Welsh surges and carried the ball bravely 6/10
11 Tim Visser: The Harlequins winger halted Rhys Webb from scoring a certain try before finishing off his own touchdown. Sensational. 9/10
10 Finn Russell: Without Laidlaw his kicking would be crucial. He returned a perfect 19 points. Game management was also superb. 8/10
9 Ali Price: He did brilliantly to deny a try in the first half but failed to get Scotland moving in the first half. 7/10
8 Ryan Wilson: He was outplayed in the first half but improved after the break. 6.5/10
7 John Hardie: Struggled against a physical back-row but managed to hold his own. 6.5/10
6 John Barclay (c): He captained the side to a famous win. He was pretty anonymous in the first half but got about a bit more in the second. 7/10
5 Jonny Gray: Was very busy in the engine room from start to finish. 8/10
4 Richie Gray: His leadership and intensity at the breakdown was crucial. Tremendous 8/10
3 Zander Fagerson: He is only 21….He was excellent. 7.5/10
