Wales seek World Cup boost from Wallabies

Gareth Anscombe desperate to add his name to 'famous history' of Welsh No 10s

Wales' first try from George North saw the hulking wing burst through the tackles of Scotland centres Alex Dunbar and Huw Jones, while the second score from centre Jonathan Davies saw the latter at fault again as he was weak in the tackle again.

Wales' giant wing George North and centre Jonathan Davies scores tries as they earned a scrappy 21-10 victory over Six Nations rivals Scotland in the opening game of their November worldwide series at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

Wales have lost 13 consecutive matches against Australia since their 21-18 victory in the same city back in November 2008.

"But the more important game will be at the World Cup".

"The tries Wales scored were defensive errors", said Townsend, Scotland's fly-half when they last won in Cardiff 16 years ago.

Weir, who was at the game with his family, received a standing ovation from a 60,000-plus crowd when he brought the silver trophy out 15 minutes before kick-off.

The Wallabies will face a Wales side determined to break their-decade long hoodoo in next weekend's rugby union Test in Cardiff.

"Gareth had a good performance and that was pleasing for him".

Halfpenny kicked three penalties inside the opening 20 minutes as referee Mathieu Raynal from France punished Scotland for repeated indiscretions in what was a poor opening quarter. North brushed aside three defenders to bag his 34th try for Wales in the first half and could have had a second.

Halfpenny drifted the wide-angled conversion attempt wide, yet Wales could not prise open the floodgates and Scotland hit back six minutes before half time when McInally powered over after a close-range lineout, and Hastings' conversion made it 14-10 at the break.

We had two tries ruled out and it was a game in which we had opportunities to win. "Scotland put us under a lot of pressure but we defended well".

It was a reprieve for Wales, but they did not help themselves when replacement hooker Elliot Dee was sin-binned 10 minutes from time for a technical offence, and then Peter Horne agonisingly failed to gather his brother George's clever kick that would have resulted in a try.
