Finn Russell reckons complacency creeped in to allow Wales back into the Six Nations opener in Cardiff after a frustrating second half. 

Scotland got their first win in Cardiff for 22 years and were 27-0 up at one stage but Wales staged an excellent second half comeback to bring it back to 27-26 at full time. Two yellow cards to George Turner and Sione Tuipulotu meant Scotland had to play 20 minutes with 14 men and it showed with a real struggle to stop Wales from scoring. 

And Russell admits that ill-discipline almost cost them and he wasn't happy with what happened in the second half, but he was proud to captain Scotland to victory in the Principality Stadium.

He told the BBC: "A little bit disappointed to be honest. The win is brilliant but that second half was nowhere near where it needed to be. First half we controlled the game but second half there was ill discipline with two yellow cards and let Wales back into the game. 

"As happy as we are to win I think it's not a performance we need, especially the second half. 

"I think when we scored the try early second half we got a little bit complacent and thought the game was done but there was still a long way to go, especially away from home. The second half wasn't good enough and the yellow cards let them back in the game. Fair play to Wales they put us under pressure. 

"The pleasing thing was the end we managed to hold them out, they had the ball in our half and we were disciplined at that point but we managed to hold them out and win the game so there are lot of positives but we need to be a lot better."
