Scotland 24-25 Wales rugby LIVE RESULT: Rees-Zammit secures huge Dragons win over 14-man Scots after Fagerson red card

WALES were made to sweat against 14-men for a second week in a row in the Six Nations.

Last Sunday, Ireland's Peter O'Mahony cleared out a ruck with his elbow and in a similar offence Zander Fagerson was sent off for leading with his shoulder against Wyn Jones.

Tries from Louis Rees-Zammit, Liam Williams and Wyn Jones gave the Welsh a narrow lead after efforts from Darcy Graham and Stuart Hogg for Scotland.

When Hogg crossed the line again despite his team being a man down, it looked like the Scots would pull of a more dramatic win than the one they achieved at Twickenham last week.

But it was Rees-Zammit who had the last word with a deft chip score a brilliant solo try.

    ROUND THREE

    Let's not get too ahead of ourselves with Ireland and France still to play each other tomorrow, but this is how the fixtures look for the next round of the Six Nations.

    The tournament has the weekend off next week, so the first fixture after the break is Italy vs Ireland on February 27.

    Wales host England looking to make it three wins from three, and Scotland travel to Paris to face in form France.

    RED CARD RECORD

    Half of the red cards ever shown in the Six Nations have come against Wales.

    It was Peter O'Mahony who was sent off for Ireland in last week's clash, and Zander Ferguson was sent off today for the same offence.

    Both men were accused of dangerous and foul play when clearing out at a ruck, by not wrapping their arms around their opponent.

    STAT ATTACK

    Despite dominating both possession and territory, Scotland ended up on the losing side.

    It begs the question, what would the score have been if Zander Fagerson had not been sent off?

    WAYNE'S THOUGHTS

    This is what Wayne Pivac has to say to BBC Sport at full time

    "From 17-3 down against a side full a confidence, it was very very pleasing.

    "There were some big moments from both sides so we are just happy to come away with a win, especially with four tries.

    "We are improving each week in certain areas of the game and we showed a lot of character today.

    "The squad has changed a lot since autumn, and it's tournament rugby now, a couple months is a long time to reflect.

    "We cannot get carried away with this though and we need to build on it.

    "Louis Rees-Zammit is doing some very good things with the ball, he's got things to work on, he dropped a high ball earlier and he wasn't the complete package, but he has scored some really well worked tries.

    "We'll review this game now, see what we need to work on.

    "A couple of the guys will go back to their clubs and hopefully come through it ok, and then we will hopefully have more players to choose from against England."

    AS IT STANDS

    So here's how the Six Nations table looks at the end of the day.

    England got their first win of the tournament today with a 41-18 win over Italy at Twickenham earlier this afternoon, before Wales made it two wins from two this evening, coming out on top in a 25-24 thriller against Scotland.

    All eyes are now on tomorrow's game between Ireland and France in Dublin, which should be another mouthwatering clash.

    STUART SPEAKS

    Losing captain Stuart Hogg has this to say after today's defeat:

    "We're bitterly disappointed I think for large parts of that game we were very much in control of it.

    "We looked the dominant side especially in the first half, and then we started being ill disciplined."

  • Giacomo Pisa

    ALUN'S ANALYIS

    This is what Wales skipper Alun Wyn Jones has to say at full time:

    "It's a strange one.

    "In parts we'll be disappointed with that performance.

    "We can be pleased with the character and resilience we showed but we know we still have lots to improve on."

    LOUIS' LOVING IT

    Here's what man of the match Louis Rees-Zammit has to say on his winning try:

    "I just tried to use my gas to get on the outside and [I] saw there was no cover in the backfield and just put a little chip over the full back and luckily I got the bounce and it came straight into my hands."

    WINNING TRY

    Here's the moment of magic from Louis Rees-Zammit that proved to be the winning try for Wales.

    BACK AND FORTH

    Stuart Hogg thought he might have won it for Scotland as he went over in the corner for fourteen-man Scotland with this effort.

    It wasn't to be though, as man of the match Louis Rees-Zammit touched down for the visitors for what proved to be the winning score.

    What a brilliant game at Murrayfield!

    AND BREATHE!

    What a game at Murrayfield.

    Duhan van de Merwe thinks he's in for the hosts, but a last gasp tap tackle brings him down.

    He tries to offload the ball to Stuart Hogg, but the ball is knocked on by Hogg and that will be that.

    Wales launch the ball into touch and their 100 percent start to the tournament continues.
