'We're going out to impose our game on Wales' - Skeldon

Lana Skeldon says Scotland are focusing on themselves and how they can impose their game on the opposition before the upcoming Women's Six Nations.

Scotland start their campaign away in Cardiff on Saturday, having lost their last three meetings with Wales.

"We're going into it really focusing on ourselves and trying to execute the things that we want to execute," the hooker said.

"We've been training hard over the last few weeks and we just want to put in what we've been doing in training into the game and hopefully get that win.

"We're going out there to impose our game on them. It's just a blend between the forwards and the backs, fronting up physically and meeting them at the line."

The 30 year-old has an impressive try-scoring record for Scotland, but was quick to credit her teammates for her success.

"I do love scoring tries, but it's a team effort," she added. "I'm just lucky that I'm the one that gets on the scoreboard sometimes.

"I'd love to score more, it gives me a boost going into the game, but as long as we're getting over the line as a team, that's what matters."

The Scots have won their last six games, a run that started in last year's Six Nations as they beat Ireland and Italy.

Scotland's women have never won seven games in a row, but Skeldon says they aren't letting a potential record distract them.

"We are aware it's there, but I think we're just really focusing on us and what we can do each time we take the field. It's really exciting that we have managed to get a run of wins on the go."
