Taylor: Scots have no fear

Scotland back row forward Simon Taylor is relishing next Sunday's meeting with Wales as his side look to build on their positive start to the Six Nations.

Frank Hadden's men pulled off a major shock by winning 20-16 against France at Murrayfield on the opening day of the championship.

Scotland were well worth their win, as they finally ended three years of misery against the leading side's in Europe.

The Scottish back row of Taylor (pictured), Allister Hogg and captain Jason White dominated the breakdown against France, and Taylor is hopeful of more of the same at the Millennium Stadium.

"Going down to Cardiff is obviously going to be hard. I think Wales put in a decent effort against England before they ran away with it at the end," said Taylor.

"The Welsh back row will play things differently to the French but we will approach the game in just the same way.

"You're never confident until you've done it but I think we're happy going into any game.

"Our back row has a good blend to it - although I suppose we're still just big guys running around the pitch.

"But certainly Jason brings the big hits and the ball-carrying yards and Hoggy does the silky things."
