Wales 31 Scotland 24

Wales produced one of the most remarkable comebacks in the history of the Six Nations yesterday afternoon to beat Scotland 31-24 at the Millennium Stadium.

The Scots had raced to an early lead in a stunning first half performance and were 24-14 ahead with just three minutes left on the clock.

The recalled Dan Parks was at the centre of everything good for Scotland scoring two penalties and a couple of neat drop-goals with flanker John Barclay and winger Max Evans adding tries.

However, Wales clawed their way back into the game thanks to a try from fullback Lee Byrne and the boot of the ever consistent Stephen Jones who notched a total of 16 points.

Scotland lost fullback Chris Paterson and wing Thom Evans to injury leading scrum-half Mike Blair being forced into action on the wing. However, the away side looked set for a famous victory until Blair and replacement fly-half Phil Godman were yellow carded in quick succession.

Wales took full advantage of the double sin-binning with Leigh Halfpenny and Shane Williams scoring tries in the last three minutes to snatch a famous victory from the jaws of defeat.
