    Background: Wales, after leading in the first half - though on the defensive - found a tremendous source of energy in the second to outplay and beat Scotland by 8 points to 3 in their international at Cardiff, today.

    On the stroke of half time, Wales took the lead against the run of play when a poor pass from Cliff Morgan failed to reach Cyril Davis but was kicked ahead by Gordon Wells who followed up at a cracking pace to score near the corner flag. Terry Davies converted gloriously.

    The forward battle was even at first, though Meredith of Wales hooked four times out of the first five scrums. The second half was only five minutes old when Arthur Smith scored a beautiful penalty goal. The Welsh fire really began to burn then and it culminated in a brilliant movement between Lloyd Williams and John Collins before the latter went over to score.
