Laidlaw pays the Price - Scotland captain benched for Wales clash
Mar 13, 2019, 00:21
Glasgow Warriors wing Kyle Steyn has joined the Scotland squad ahead of their Six Nations clash against England in London on Saturday.
It was made to work for its 11-18 victory though, with a depleted Scotland side left disappointed not to have made the most of a chaotic second period in which Wales failed to score until the last minute.
The match finished with Wales in the Scotland 22 for the first time since the end of the first half, and Gareth Anscombe kicking a second penalty.

The visiting side led 15-6 at half-time, with the scoreline not reflecting their overall dominance as Scotland struggled to cope with Wales' mix of crushing phase-based attack play and sharp finishing.
Scotland dominated the second half but only had a Graham try to show for their superiority as Wales dug in with their backs to the wall to stand on the verge of a Grand Slam, with Ireland to come in Cardiff on the final weekend.
The more Wales tried to close out the game the more Scotland began to find gaps in the usually formidable Welsh defense.
Scotland was hit by a string of first-half injuries that added to an already lengthy pre-game roster of absent players, with the back-three duo of Tommy Seymour and Blair Kinghorn going off early.
Wales' last defeat dates back to 24 February a year ago, when they were beaten 37-27 by an Ireland side that went on to complete a Grand Slam.
Wales fullback Liam Williams also left in the second half, right arm slung in his shirt.
Scotland, meanwhile, faces the prospect of ending a disappointing campaign with a solitary win unless they can inflict a shock defeat against England in its final fixture. Head coach Gregor Townsend has been robbed of John Barclay, WP Nel, Hamish Watson, Ryan Wilson, Finn Russell, Huw Jones and Stuart Hogg during the Six Nations and now heads to Twickenham were the Scots have not won for 36 years.
"I am very proud of the players, we started the game well, we had adjustments to make with players getting injured and didn't defend well for the second quarter, but I believe we were the better team in the second half", he said.

It appeared Colman was just as surprised with her win as the rest of the room, as she blushed profusely and appeared flustered. Nominated in eight categories and the second most honoured film, it was only awarded one prize, for make-up and hair styling.
