Wales caretaker coach Rob Howley heaped praise on his forwards after the 28-18 Six Nations win in Scotland.

Murrayfield was left disappointed as the reigning champions muscled their way to a chance of defending their crown - with 23 points from Leigh Halfpenny supplementing a try from hooker Richard Hibbard.

Howley said: "I was pleased with the victory. Murrayfield is not the easiest place to come. Many good Wales teams have come down the years and lost.

"I thought our pack was outstanding. In terms of their ball carrying and defensive qualities, were looked fairly strong. That gave us the platform and we need that today.

Pressure

"In attack and defence, Sam Warburton was outstanding. He showed world-class qualities, pressure on the ball and vital turnovers. I'm delighted for Sam because he's had a tough time the last five-six weeks. So it's good to see him enjoying his rugby."

There were some contentious decisions made by referee Craig Joubert but Howley, whose men face England in Cardiff in their final game, refused to criticise the officials.

He added: "We were not happy with our own penalty county. In our last three matches, we have conceded nine in each, and that is the reason why we have won the last couple of games.

"So to go over 10 was very disappointing. We lacked discipline at times and it's important you listen to the referee. We need to take that on board because England next week is a pretty important game."
