CARDIFF (Reuters) – Wales’ giant wing George North and centre Jonathan Davies scores tries as they earned a scrappy 21-10 victory over Six Nations rivals Scotland in the opening game of their November international series at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

Fullback Leigh Halfpenny kicked three penalties and a conversion as Wales seized on errors from the visitors to claim a sixth win in succession for the first time since 2012.

Hooker Stuart McInally scored the only try for the Scots, who had further opportunities but could not break down an organised home defence.

The victory provides a solid, if unspectacular, start to Wales coach Warren Gatland’s final year in charge as he builds to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
