Match report

By Ian Golden

Wales needed a 35-point win to clinch the Celtic Cup and they were 34-points up at half-time against Scotland. They didn’t have it all their own way, but Scotland’s efforts couldn’t stop Wales from winning a seventh successive title.

Martin Lane gave Wales the lead in the seventh minute. Stephen Halsey converted, then added the second try.

Harry Jones marked his World Record 43rd cap by scoring Wales’ third which Halsey improved, and Gary Preece went over for the fourth on 18 minutes with Halsey converting.

Scotland struck back on 21 minutes through Calum Davidson with Dan Grant converting.

But that was just respite. Wales addressed the balance when Jones scored his second of the game. Mark Williams sped in under the sticks from the next set. Stuart Williams was in next, scoring in the corner. Preece went over for his second. Halsey converted all four.

Scotland again got a try back, this time through Dan Grant which he improved himself and Wales were 46-12 up at the break.

It took five minutes for skipper Stuart Williams to add to Wales’ lead. He raced past his markers to score and Halsey converted.

Then Lee Sargent did well to evade his markers to score his first international try leaving an easy conversion for Halsey.

Halsey raced away looking for a try of his own, but was stopped by a brilliant tackle by Callum Young, but a couple of tackles later, Halsey did get his try and duly converted.

Scotland hit back again. Newsround presenter Martin Dougan, on his first day playing the international game, with a try in the corner. Dan Grant converted.

Wales brought up 70 points on 68 minutes. Preece securing his hat-trick and Halsey converting.

Lucie Roberts added the 13th try, with Mason Baker converting, before Scotland struck again, this time through Willians, with Dan Grant converting.

A Michael Grant try, converted by his brother started to give Ireland hope for the title, but Wales held on to clinch the trophy.
