Wales fly-half Dan Biggar is determined "to put things right" from their English loss when they take on Scotland at Murrayfield on Sunday.

The 25-year-old, who suffered a cut head during that 21-6 defeat in Cardiff, keeps his place in the side after impressing alongside Rhys Webb.

But he knows Wales have a few bridges to rebuild when they run out for Round Two against the Scots, as they look to repeat 2013's Six Nations heroics.

"Confidence won't be an issue in terms of this team, it's about trying to get that win under our belt," he told walesonline.co.uk ahead of the away fixture.

"We have got a good record up in Murrayfield. It's a case of getting a win and kick starting our campaign.

"If we don't win on Sunday, then the Six Nations has gone for us. But it's a big year, so we have to make sure we get back on the horse, get back to winning ways and go into the World Cup with some good confidence.

"We need to put things right, that's all it is. It's one half of rugby we were disappointed with, but the bigger picture is the rest of the Six Nations and leading into the summer and World Cup. You don't need any extra motivation when you put on that red jersey.

"With one or two tweaks here and there, we will be in a strong position."

He added on what he expects from Scotland: "They were excellent against France and were unlucky to lose that game.

"They look a confident side, with plenty of belief. New management has given them that confidence to back themselves and go and play. They have got powerful runners, dangerous backs and we will have to be on red alert.

"Our record is good against them, but we will have to be better than we were against England to pick up a win.

"It's going to be a huge, huge Test match, a game that both teams need to win.

"The team that loses, the Six Nations has gone for them so it's a must-win game and we are all looking forward to it."
