Warren Gatland delight at late Wales win over Scotland

Watch highlights of Wales' dramatic win over Scotland in the Six Nations

Highlights - Wales 31-24 Scotland

Coach Warren Gatland described Wales' stunning 31-24 comeback victory over Scotland as "one of the most amazing games I've ever been involved in".

"The Scots will be hugely disappointed, but what a great advert for the game," he said after two converted tries and a kick in the last five minutes won it.

"Defensively it was one of our worst games for a while.

"I think their two yellow cards were fair in the end - the referee had given them enough warnings."

Captain Ryan Jones was delighted that his decision to go for an equalising penalty in the 79th minute when Scotland were down to 13 men paid dividends.

Gatland hails Welsh determination

"Decisions like that you live and die by," said the number eight.

"It's a huge relief when it pays off, but any more like that and I will be as grey as Warren."

After Stephen Jones had levelled the game at 24-24, Scotland restarted and after an extended final play Shane Williams crossed under the posts.


Wing Williams believes his last-gasp match-winning try can be the turning point for Wales in this year's Six Nations.

"It was great to be a part of," said Wales' record try scorer. "If that can't turn us around I don't know what can."

Talking about his late try, he joked: "It's not good for the nerves at this age, I'll be honest with you.

Williams salutes Welsh spirit

"We know we didn't start well, the pressure was on us. The boys stuck in there right to the end, we did absolutely everything out there."

Alun-Wyn Jones, whose sin-binning proved costly in last week's defeat to England, added: "I had my 15 minutes of shame, that's behind me now.

"Hopefully it's onwards and upwards for me personally and for the squad."
