Wales and Scotland will resume their Six Nations journey when they meet at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday.

The two sides last played in the tournament in March, but will finally finish the competition this weekend after it was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The meeting will take place in Llanelli after Wales confirmed that the Principality Stadium is being used as a temporary hospital during the pandemic.

And World Rugby have approved a temporary international window in order to allow the tournament to be completed.

Ireland kicked off the resumption of the Six Nations with a 50-17 victory over Italy last weekend, having completed just three of their games as opposed to England, Scotland, Wales and France, who had completed four matches.

Scotland sit fourth in the standings on ten points, three ahead of Wales in fifth.

Gregor Townsend’s men were unsuccessful in their opening two games, losing 19-12 at Ireland and 13-6 at home to England.

But they bounced back with two impressive victories. They eased past Italy 17-0, before overcoming France 28-17 at Murrayfield.

Wales, meanwhile, have just one win to their name. Wayne Pivac’s side thumped Italy 42-0 in the opening weekend, but they are yet to pick up a victory since.

They lost their away games 24-14 and 33-30 to Ireland and England respectively. Those losses came either side of a 27-23 home defeat to France at the Principality Stadium.

The Welsh lost to France once more in last weekend’s warm-up encounter, but they will now turn their focus to the Six Nations once again.

A home win can be backed at 1/2.

Scotland have been given odds of 11/5 to come away with a victory.

And it’s currently 25/1 for the pair to finish this year’s disrupted competition with a draw.

The visitors can be backed at 9/1 to win both halves, with the hosts currently 13/8 to do the same.

Pivac’s outfit are currently available at 8/11 to score the first points on Saturday afternoon. And Townsend’s side have been given odds of 6/5 to score first.
