Cardiff (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Wales inflicted Scotland's heaviest Six Nations defeat with a crushing 51-3 victory at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The Scots never recovered from having to play nearly an hour a man down after full-back Stuart Hogg was sent off for a late tackle on Wales fly-half Dan Biggar. The visitors, seeking a first win in Cardiff in 12 years, took an early lead but from then on it was one-way traffic as Wales, unable to win a third successive title following last week's defeat by England, took complete control of their final match of the 2014 Championship. This was Scotland's third heaviest Test defeat of all time, with their previous worst in the Six Nations a 43-3 thrashing by England in 2001.
