DOUGIE FIFE: The debutant wing looked out of his depth up against the juggernaut of George North. 3

ALEX DUNBAR: Found himself tugged about out of position too often trying to cover gap left by Hogg. 4

MATT SCOTT: Put in a few massive hits but it was like trying to fight back the tide for the centre. 4

MAX EVANS: Another Scot swept aside too easily, too often by the rampant hosts. 4

DUNCAN WEIR: Made a glut of tackles in the opening half as he was forced to fight fires but chose wrong option too often. 4

GREIG LAIDLAW: Missed a couple of kicks his team could have done with going between the posts. 3

RYAN GRANT: Looked shell-shocked as he trudged off after 46 minutes. 4

SCOTT LAWSON: Couple of erratic line-outs did not help Scots when they were under the cosh. 4

GEOFF CROSS: Lasted just 40 minutes after a toothless display. 3

RICHIE GRAY: Fell off far more tackles than a man of his size should. 3

JIM HAMILTON: A proud warrior but found himself humiliated. 4

RYAN WILSON: Failed to cope with the power of the Welsh pack. 3

KELLY BROWN: Spared blame for the mortifying loss after he limped off injured just nine minutes in. Replaced by Alasdair Strokosch. 2

DAVID DENTON: The powerful Glasgow man tried to carry the ball with menace but Wales had his number. 4

How the Wales players were rated:

LIAM WILLIAMS: A quality try-scoring performance in place of the injured Leigh Halfpenny. 8/10

ALEX CUTHBERT: All the action was on the other wing, and it proved largely a watching brief for Cuthbert. 7

JONATHAN DAVIES: Wales' midfield creator was too hot for Scotland to handle. 8

JAMIE ROBERTS: Claimed two of Wales' seven tries. Linked superbly with midfield partner Davies. 8

GEORGE NORTH: Took his Test try tally to 18 with a double at Scotland's expense. 8

DAN BIGGAR: Kicked four conversions and two penalties for a 14-point haul. 7

MIKE PHILLIPS: Had his best game of the championship. A thorn in Scotland's side. 7

GETHIN JENKINS: Celebrated his Wales record 105th cap in style. 7

KEN OWENS: The Scarlets hooker displayed a considerable work-rate. 7

RHODRI JONES: Continued his impressive upward momentum in Test rugby. 7

LUKE CHARTERIS: Coped comfortably with Scotland's lineout threat, and prominent in the loose. 7

ALUN-WYN JONES: At the heart of a committed and controlled Wales forward effort. 7

DAN LYDIATE: Usual prodigious tackle count by the Racing Metro flanker. 7

SAM WARBURTON: The Wales captain will have been delighted with his team's ruthless approach. 7

TAULUPE FALETAU: Wales' best player. Magnificent in loose and tight exchanges. 9
