Liam Williams celebrates scoring for Wales

Wales made it two wins from two as they fought back to beat Scotland 25-24 who were reduced to 14-men after Zander Fagerson was sent off.

A brace from Louis Rees-Zammit, plus tries from Liam Williams and Wyn Jones secured the win for Wales while Callum Sheedy and Leigh Halfpenny added a conversion and a penalty.

Stuart Hogg once again produced a superb performance for Scotland scoring two tries while Darcy Graham also got onto the scoresheet with Finn Russell adding three conversions and a penalty.

Scotland had looked on track for victory until referee Matthew Carley sent off Zander Fagerson in the 53rd minute after he made shoulder-led contact with Wales prop Wyn Jones’ head at a ruck.

Despite being down a man, Scotland threw everything at Wales but could not do enough to secure victory.
