Top effort: Sam Warburton

Recalled flanker Sam Warburton was pleased to play a part in Wales' 28-18 victory over Scotland, which saw him pick up the man-of-the-match award.

The 24-year-old Cardiff Blues openside put in an impressive effort that helped the Welsh set up a Six Nations Championship decider with England.

His fine performance also gave his chances of making the plane for the upcoming British and Irish Lions squad a massive shot in the arm.

"It's a brilliant win and we are so pleased. We knew it would be tough as it is always tough up here but we are delighted with the win," he said.

"I did not really feel I had a point to prove, I just wanted to get straight back in and make sure we won.

"We are lucky to have a fantastic squad which is very competitive and I am glad to be back in a winning team.

"(Assistant coach) Shaun Edwards has emphasised our defence every week, he is a superb defence coach and he wanted us to stop Scotland, and we are delighted to have gone another game without conceding a try."
