Wales flanker Sam Warburton was delighted to have played such a crucial role in the 28-18 Six Nations victory over Scotland at Murrayfield.

The 24-year-old was back to his best to stake his claim for a British and Irish Lions place this summer - winning several penalties with his diligence at the breakdown as Wales kept alive their hopes of retaining their title.

He said afterwards: "It's a brilliant win and we are so pleased. We knew it would be tough as it is always tough up here but we are delighted with the win.

"I did not really feel I had a point to prove, I just wanted to get straight back in and make sure we won.


"We are lucky to have a fantastic squad which is very competitive and I am glad to be back in a winning team.

"(Assistant coach) Shaun Edwards has emphasised our defence every week, he is a superb defence coach and he wanted us to stop Scotland, and we are delighted to have gone another game without conceding a try."

Rob Howley's side now begin preparations for a deciding showdown with Grand Slam-hunting England, and Warburton added: "We have 24 hours to relax and then we will start looking forward to England on Monday."
