Grand Slam-chasing Gatland says Wales 'have a dream'

Grand Slam-chasing Gatland says Wales 'have a dream'

AN improvement, but another defeat.

Scotland started well as they took an 11th-minute lead after Wales flanker Josh Navidi infringed and Russell kicked the resulting penalty. Frustration, because despite utterly dominating territorially, they scored only once in the second half.

Wales will be happy with their first-half performance and defensive coach Shaun Edwards will be pleased with the defensive display Wales showed in that second 40 minutes. "What we showed today against the No 3 team in the world, if we build on that performance we can be a match for any team in the world", Townsend said.

"We are 13 in a row and hopefully we can do 14 now".

"We made a few errors and our line speed wasn't good in areas but it got better".

"We asked a lot of the boys before the game to be physical, work really hard, and that was there in abundance and I'm proud of the effort we put in". "It's a dream and we could do something special as a group of players".

"We do get an extra day over Ireland because they play on Sunday and that is going to be a challenge for them". But we had chances.

And their pressure was rewarded through a fine 58th-minute score for Graham, which owed everything to smart creative work by Russell and replacement Byron McGuigan and concluded a dominant Scottish third quarter that saw Wales' penalty count stack up. Was I surprised there was no yellow card? Yes. You break a record and no one can take it away from you.

Townsend will have a better idea on Monday about which players will be available for the trip to London, with particular concern being about the back three. "That is how global rugby is refereed throughout the world".

"We cost ourselves defensively in the first half, gave them a couple of soft tries". "He's not back to full training, so he would have to make some progress over the weekend to come into consideration", the coach said.

He said: "We would obviously have liked to have won that game".

"We're enjoying each other's company and big thing for us is being part of a squad that's operating well but maybe not at its full potential. Now they need to finish the job". They're an excellent side and we couldn't break them down.

Warren Gatland acknowledged fortune was on Wales' side as they held off a fierce Scotland fightback to triumph 18-11 at Murrayfield and move to the brink of Grand Slam glory in the Six Nations.

Scotland virtually owned the second half, playing with all of the ball, forcing penalties, and pinning Wales down. "And we threw everything at them in the second half but couldn't bring them down".

"Any team that's won a Grand Slam, and I think back even to previous year with Ireland and that Johnny Sexton drop goal, you look back at certain games and know you've had a little bit of luck", said Gatland, on the verge of his third Grand Slam.

"Maybe from a coaching perspective we needed to be a bit tougher at half-time".

"We had enough pressure in the second half to win".

"The competition is still open with England and Ireland thinking they will be in with a chance if we get knocked over".

Then, suddenly, Wales became the punching bag in the second half.
