WALES’ players are looking to put things right after their opening day defeat in the Six Nations as they prepare to head to Murrayfield.

Warren Gatland’s side lost 34-10 to Ireland in Cardiff on Saturday, having been stunned with two tries in the opening 10 minutes.

They’ll be looking to put things right against a Scotland team brimming with confidence from beating England 29-23 at Twickenham in week one.

Speaking ahead of this weekend, Josh Adams said the squad was keen to move onto the Scotland game to make up for the disappointment against Ireland.

“It will be an honest review, as it always is,” he said. “It has to be as well because if you don’t have tough conversations, and you’re not honest with each other, then you’re just papering over cracks.

“There is no getting better unless you’re honest. The most important thing is Warren Gatland drives us as a head coach, which he does brilliantly to help us get better at the aspects which didn’t go as well against Ireland. 

“We definitely expect to be better next week – I’m confident that will be the case. From the past two weeks leading into this week with the new coaches and new systems we’ve had, to get to where we’ve got to, has been really, really good.  

“That’s only going to get better, and I’m confident we’ll get better as we go. We said after the game that it was disappointing, but the feeling we had was we wished the Scotland game was sooner because we’re all so eager to go and put that right.  

“Everyone had a sense of really wanting to put that game right as soon as possible. We’ll work hard, as we always do, and we’ll look to put things right this weekend.”  

Their opponents come into Saturday’s clash off the back of a third consecutive Calcutta Cup win, and Adams said Wales were under no illusions about the size of the challenge they were facing.

“It’s a tough ask at Murrayfield because Scotland are playing really, really well at the moment,” he said.

“They did in the autumn and have done probably for the last two years.  

“They’ve got some great players and it will be the first home game of their campaign. It will be tough but after round one we’re all eager to get going.”
