Hadleigh Parkes produced a gritty performance in both attack and defence to claim the Guinness Man of the Match award as Wales kept their Grand Slam dreams alive.
Parkes ended the game with 15 tackles and eight carries, bandaged up after a first-half injury and led Wales in their victory.
It was his hard carry that laid the platform for Jonathan Davies’ try in the first half that opened up a nine-point lead.
And in the second half he typified Wales’ defensive effort with a huge hit on Darcy Graham and in scrambling back to claim a clever Ali Price kick.
Wales are now just one win away from a Grand Slam in Warren Gatland’s final Championship in charge.
Ireland are up next on Super Saturday in Cardiff, and Parkes cannot wait to take them on.
“Scotland really chucked it at us in that second half, but the forwards defended really well and the backs complemented then all right,” he said.
“It was a win we had to really dig deep for. The feeling in the team is amazing at the moment, we enjoy each others’ company and working hard for each other.
“Next week is very exciting, it is going to be amazing for all of us. In our careers it doesn’t come along very often.
“But we will enjoy this win first of all and then look forward to next week.”
