Jenkins dismisses title talk

Neil Jenkins says there is no chance of Wales being distracted by a potential Six Nations title shootout with England next month.

If Wales beat Scotland in Edinburgh on 9 March and England defeat Italy the following day, the destination of the championship will be decided at the Millennium Stadium on 16 March.

However, assistant coach Jenkins says Wales are not looking beyond their trip to Murrayfield, where they will attempt to register a third successive away victory.

"The main focus for us is to win our games, starting against Scotland, which we know is going to very tough," he said.

"There is no thought or mention of England a week later. When that comes around it will bring enough pressures with it. Our focus is on Scotland and about doing a job there.

"They (Scotland) are the same as us - two wins out of three - and it is a home game for them.

"They will fancy their chances against us and then to go to Paris on the final day with a chance of maybe them winning the championship.

"It was an excellent win for them on the weekend against Ireland. People talked afterwards about stats and possession, but if you have got the ball you have got to take your chances.

"Ireland didn't take their opportunities on Sunday, and Scotland kept hanging in there, dug in and kicked their kicks."
