Wales welcome Scotland to the Principality Stadium, in their first home game of the 2022 Six nations Championship.

In 2017 Weir announced he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease and set up a charity which has raised in excess of £1 million. He was appointed an OBE in the 2019 New Year Honours for services to rugby, motor neurone disease research and to the community in the Scottish Borders.
Wales v Scotland 2022 will be played on the second round of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations Championship when they meet at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. Wales secured a tense 25-24 victory in Scotland in the 2021 Championship. Wales were down 17-8 at half time as tries from Graham and Hogg pushed the home side firmly ahead. Rees-Zammit scored in the 37th minute to reduce the deficit and give Wales some momentum going into the second half.
The game was tight but a red card for Scotland’s Fagerson turned the game around and against 14 men, Pivac’s side needed just 90 seconds to score with Jones barging over from close range. The game flowed, with both sides taking scoring opportunities but the final try was a thing of beauty from Rees-Zammit, his second try of the game. Clipping the ball over Hogg’s head, he raced through and scored what proved to be the winning try, helping to claim the bonus point in the process.
Wales were crowned 2021 Six Nations Champions with a Triple Crown in the history books as well. That takes Wales to six 6 Nations victories since the expanded format and 28 outright victories since the tournament began, just one behind England on 29. Wales have now also won two out of the last three tournaments, having not win since 2013 which confirms this is a strong era for Welsh rugby
