As a result Edwards has shuffled his backline for the visit of the Scots to Pandy Park with a pair of new faces introduced, Amy Day at scrum-half and Caryl James on the wing.
It's as you were in the pack for Wales and Edwards said: "I was pleased with the way the front five went to be honest. The forwards went really well as did the scrum," said Edwards.
"Going into the match there were some question marks surrounding that area but Jenny Davies showed her verstality in the unfamiliar role of tighthead so that should give her plenty of confidence which is pleasing.
"Our second row pairing of Vicky Owens and Shona Powell-Hughes also stood out and had plenty of carries while captain Rachel Taylor led from the front.
"On the flip side of the coin there were a couple of areas which were disappointing which we will have to eradicate if we are going to get a win against Scotland."
Scotland were thrashed 47-0 by England last week but boss Karen Findlay is confident the team have done all they can this week to bounce back.
"Last Sunday was a very physical game and we've worked hard to get our players into the best possible shape for this next game," said Findlay.
Scotland's victors England head to Italy and despite having rung the changes new skipper Sarah Hunter - who replaces Katy McLean - insists her charges won't take the trip lightly.
"We must step up as Italy were the only side to cross our line in the 6 Nations last season," said Hunter.
"We are definitely taking them seriously.
"We will go to Milan with confidence but we are under no illusions because we definitely won't be in for an easy ride."
Meanwhile Ireland have named an unchanged side as they look to return from France with a win to their name for the first time.
Having come through last week's short-lived clash with Wales, Irish coach Philip Doyle said: "Thankfully after last week's performance, even if it was only forty minutes long, we are able to name an unchanged XV and bench for this week's game.
"France away is always a hard place to go and get a win but the ladies are in a good space at the moment and will take that into the weekend.
"I am in no doubt that the ladies will put in a performance and raise their game in order to get where they want to be."
