Wales coach Mike Ruddock claimed the Principality can be proud of its rugby players after the 46-22 demolition of Scotland took them to within one win of a famous Grand Slam.
A sensational start to the match at Murrayfield - during which they scored three tries in less than 15 minutes - saw Wales sew up victory in stunning fashion.
Scotland mounted something of a recovery after the break to give the scoreline a somewhat flattering look, but there is no denying just what a convincing victory this was for Ruddock's men.
They now face Ireland on Saturday at the Millennium Stadium with their first clean sweep since 1978 the tantalising reward for victory.
Ruddock said: ''We started the game the way we finished it in Paris.
''We wanted to attack them from the start and we were exhilarating, playing with pace, a great tempo and with continuity between the backs and forwards.
''We asked the players the previous week who had won in Paris before and a few had but only one had ever won at Murrayfield and that was Gareth Llewellyn, so this is a great win for Wales.
''We didn't play for the full 80 minutes but when we did play there was a great quality to our play and the players are a credit to our nation.
''They've played with confidence, belief and ability - myself and my coaching staff are just there to support them.''
