Scotland's rugby team are celebrating two momentous wins out of two in the Guinness Six Nations tournament. After beating England at home in Twickenham last weekend, they followed up with a resounding 35-7 victory over Wales today at Murrayfield Stadium, clinching the Doddie Weir Cup for the first time in three meetings.

Scrum half Finn Russell crowned a memorable performance and a hat-trick of try assists with an inspired backhanded pass in mid-tackle, just yards from the Welsh line, which he sneaked out to Kyle Steyn on the wing.

Russell, who kicked two conversions and two penalty kicks, was awarded player of the match.

Today marks the first time Scotland have had back-to-back wins at the start of a Six Nations tournament, since it began in 2000.

Scotland are now looking toward even tougher games against France, the world's number two ranking, in Paris on Sunday 26 February and at home at Murrayfield against Ireland, the world's number one ranking, on Sunday 12 March.

Anything is possible now.
