4:32pm

Wales romp to victory against the 14 men of Scotland to end their Six Nations campaign on a real high

Wales add another try at the death, a first for Rhodri Williams after James Hook's kick on 49-3

We are back under way. Wales 27-3 up

3:42pm

Teams back out at the Millennium Stadium. Can Wales get 50? 60?

3:38pm

3:31pm

Wales in total control and scoring at will against Scotland's 14 men. Hogg's dismissal has left the visitors with an uphill task to prevent this becoming a humiliating total

3:30pm

3:30pm

HT: WALES 27 SCOTLAND 3

3:30pm

Biggar's conversion hits the upright but bounces the right way between the posts and Wales lead 27-3 at the break

Biggar could have been knocked out by Hogg but he picks himself up after treatment and kicks Wales into a 13-3 lead in the 25th minute

3:12pm

Scotland's Stuart Hogg sent off for a forearm smash on Dan Biggar. Replay on the big screen looks horrendous and it changed referee Jerome Garces' mind from yellow to red

3:06pm

3:06pm

That was Liam Williams' first try for Wales and he won't forget that moment

3:04pm

Wales legend Barry John is beside us in the press box and predicting a home win. "There's no such thing as a dead rubber when you're playing for Wales," he says. Quite right too
