Wales will not underestimate Scotland, says assistant coach Shaun Edwards

Assistant coach Shaun Edwards insists Wales will not underestimate Scotland when the teams meet in Cardiff on Saturday.
Wales, who produced an impressive fightback in last weekend's Six Nations opener in Ireland to draw 16-16, have not lost to Scotland since 2007.
Warren Gatland's coaching reign at Wales has been notable for three Six Nations titles, two Grand Slams and a World Cup semi-final appearance.
But when it comes to dominance over one team during the Gatland era, Wales boast an invincible record against Scotland of played eight, won eight.
Although Scotland last won at the Millennium Stadium in 2002, Edwards believes that has no bearing on Saturday's outcome.
"We have a lot of respect for Scotland - they bring the best out of us," Edwards said.
"The teams that bring the best out of you are the teams that you know can hurt you. There is no risk of complacency whatsoever."
Despite that draw in Dublin last Sunday, which ended Grand Slam and Triple Crown hopes at the first hurdle, Wales know that four successive victories - three of which would be at home - are likely to secure Six Nations silverware.
"It's still in our hands. That is what's good about it," Edwards added.
"If we had lost, then you have to rely on other teams to lose. If Ireland win every game, then we will have to beat them on points difference, but it's still in our hands."
