    Scotland boss Gregor Townsend has urged his side to back up last weekend's 11-6 victory over England at Twickenham, when they host Wales this afternoon.

    He said: "The growth for us now has to be in backing up big performances.

    "That means being consistent and tough to beat, something I suppose we have not always been if you look back over the last few years.

    "Consistency in performance might not mean that you win every game, but you will get confidence from it so you are able to handle tough moments.

    "We know we are in for a testing game against an experienced Wales side, but we believe in this group and we can be a match for anybody in this championship."

    Scotland host Wales at Murrayfield this afternoon still bathing in the afterglow of last weekend's stunning Calcutta Cup triumph over England at Twickenham.

    Gregor Townsend's side travelled south of the border to dominate the Red Rose in their own backyard, bossing possession and giving little away during the 11-6 victory.

    This time around they'll aim to prove they are serious contenders for the title, by backing up last week's triumph with another statement win against Wales.

    Wayne Pivac's side themselves got off to a good start last time out, defeating Ireland 21-16 at the Principality Stadium on Sunday.
