The Welsh coach Waren Gatland sees Scotland as favourite against Six Nation title holders, England. The two teams clash on February 4, 2012 at the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, for their first match of the 2012 Six Nations tournament.
Scotland will next play away against Gatland’s team during the 2nd Week of encounters, scheduled for February 12. Wales vs Scotland will be played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Wether Gatland backs Scotland against England out of pure interest or her really believes that the Scotts are favourites against the Six Nations defending Champions is hard to tell.
However, Waren motivates that England will line-up a few youngsters and the pressure exerted by the crowd at Murrayfield will cost them the win. He does believe that England will get better and better as the tournament goes on.
Scotland is backed as favourite although Dan Park is not in the best shape of his life. Gatland believes though that Andy Robinson will be able to find the prefect line-up for Saturday’s encounter.
The New Zealender seems to love the Scots especially, with him insisting that this weekend he is about tennis and supporting Andy Murray for winning the 2012 Australian Open title.
