Scrum-half Ali Price believes Scotland need to improve their accuracy if they are to see an uplift in their Guinness Six Nations fortunes.
It has been an inconsistent start for Gregor Townsend’s men in the 2019 Championship, which began with a 33-20 triumph over Italy at BT Murrayfield.
But they have suffered back-to-back defeats at home in Ireland and to France in Paris, where Price scored a try off the bench.
And the No.9 hopes they can sharpen their play in time to welcome Wales in Round Four next weekend.
“We’ve not really clicked,” he told BBC Scotland. “It’s disappointing and the boys were down after that France game. We’ve had a couple of reviews this week and it’s important not to dwell.
“We’ve not really fired a shot in this Championship whether it be in attack or defence. It’s just down to little bits of accuracy.
“It shouldn’t take until the fourth game to get that, but maybe we’ll click against Wales and put in a good performance.”
Despite Wales remaining the only unbeaten side in the 2019 Guinness Six Nations, Price feels Scotland need to use the match to pick up momentum before the end of the Championship.
He hopes they can slingshot up the table with a late burst, which would include beating England in the Calcutta Cup on the final day.
“Momentum is a massive thing,” Price said. “There’s a big break after this, so hopefully there’s a bit of momentum, a bit of confidence behind us after finishing the Guinness Six Nations strongly.
“It would be massive and with two good results we can still finish pretty high up the table, so that’s our aim.”
