What a difference two years makes. In March 2003, Wales arrived at Murrayfield still searching for an RBS 6 Nations win but left on the wrong end of 30-22 defeat and the possibility of the wooden spoon.
Now the Welsh team head into the clash with Scotland aiming to maintain their Grand Slam momentum.
Wales have not won the tournament since 1994 but will be aiming to reach next week's crucial game against Ireland with a full eight points in the bag.
The talents of Neath-Swansea Ospreys back Gavin Henson will be one of the main attractions for fans flocking to Murrayfield on Sunday although the superb 24-18 win in Paris underlines a team of determination and character.
The hard-fought nature of a thrilling encounter would have taken some of the steam out of the Welsh side if they had been arriving in Edinburgh a week later.
But, after a fortnight's break, Mike Ruddock's side are ready to go again with Scotland in their sights.
However, the Scots have their own reasons for raising the bar on their display against Italy two weeks ago.
Matt Williams finally savoured an RBS 6 Nations win with the 18-10 triumph over the Italians although the effective boot of Chris Paterson played a more prominent part in the win than a tremendous performance.
But for the wayward kicking of Italian full-back Roland De Marigny at Murrayfield, Scotland could still be searching for a point.
However, the Scots will want a major improvement against the Welsh to prepare for next week's Calcutta Cup clash at Twickenham on a high.
