HERE'S how we rated the Wales players in the Six Nations game against Scotland:

Liam Williams - 9

A breath of fresh air. Williams didn't just score a try and have a hand in four more. He inspired a team.

Alex Cuthbert - 6

Strangely quiet. Occasional semi-bright moment, but this wasn't Cuthbert at his best.

Jonathan Davies - 8

Involved in no fewer than six of the tries, Davies was back to his best and Scotland couldn't deal with his power or awareness.

Jamie Roberts - 8

Scotland struggled to deal with him. Roberts could batter down castle doors with his carrying. Deserved two tries.

George North - 8

Took both tries well and made life an absolute nightmare for Scottish debutant Dougie Fife.

Dan Biggar - 8

Should have been in from start of tournament. Created, controlled and kicked goals.

Mike Phillips - 7

Another one who was involved in six of the tries. Odd glitch at base of scrum, but Phillips finished day well in credit.

Gethin Jenkins - 7

A solid effort as he became Wales's most capped player. Brought immense physicality to proceedings.

Ken Owens - 7

Grafted relentlessly, making himself available for carrying and not shying away from defensive duties.

Rhodri Jones - 7

Remarkable defensive effort saw tight-head put in a dozen tackles. Can he scrummage? We are still not entirely clear.

Luck Charteris - 7

Wales won all three games in which Charteris featured in this championship and this was another workaholic effort.

Alun Wyn Jones - 9

On another day, Jones would have been man of the match. At the centre of everything good about Wales up front. Superb.

Dan Lydiate - 7

Did what it said on the tin: let no-one pass at any point. Eleven tackles completed perfect defensive campaign.

Taulupe Faletau - 8

Scored a try, relished the free-running nature of the match and displayed a big appetite for tacking.

Sam Warburton - 7

Good. Achieved a couple of turnovers and busy in other areas. Sad end to championship with injury in final play.

Replacements: Paul James: Busy in defence, odd glitch at scrum, 6; Richard Hibbard: Eight tackles and three carries in 23 minutes — wow, 8. Adam Jones: Far from finished yet, 6. Jake Ball: Newcomer maintained favourable impression, 7. Justin Tipuric: One superb break, 7. Rhodri Williams: Confirmed glowing promise, 8. Rhys Priestland: Some lovely passing, 7. James Hook: Cleverly manufactured kick for final try, 7.
