Scotland skipper Kelly Brown expects Wales to provide their toughest opposition of the Six Nations this season.

Brown's side go into Saturday's clash at Murrayfield full of confidence following wins over Italy and Ireland - their first back-to-back victories in the competition for 12 years.

Scotland were on the back foot for the majority of their hard-fought win over Ireland, and Brown believes they will face more of the same against Wales.

"If you look at their squad, it's absolutely filled with Lions and world-class players," said Brown.

"I would say it will be our toughest challenge in the championship so far but as a sportsman you want to be challenged by the top teams and there is no doubt Wales are one of those.

"Everyone in the squad is very grounded. There is no doubt we take a lot of confidence from the last two wins but we know the performances were far from perfect.

"We have looked at those and identified the things we need to improve. We have been working hard to make sure that, when we take the field on Saturday, we are as well prepared as we possibly can be.

"We sat down and we spoke about four key areas that we need to get right and we have been working on these every day in training. And you can see all of the guys becoming more and more accomplished in these areas."
