A pair of tries from Amy Day inspired Wales Women as they cruised to a comfortable win over Scotland to kick-start their Six Nations campaign.
Wales were left disappointed last week after their clash with Ireland fell victim to the freezing weather at the interval.
But they let their frustrations out on Scotland with a dominant performance at Pandy Park, Cross Keys.
Jamie Kift and captain Rachel Taylor got the ball rolling for the hosts before scrum-half Day pounced for quick-fire tries either side of the break.
Rhys Edwards' Wales demonstrated their attacking intent from the off with Naomi Thomas ghosting past her opposite number and releasing Charlie Murray. The ball was recycled and lost but the attack was a promising start from Wales, which was carried on by Adi Taviner.
Wales continued to exert pressure with Philippa Tuttiet and Caryl James combining to earn a penalty but Thomas was unable to open the scoring.
But Wales eventually got their breakthrough on 19 minutes following a trademark Thomas break. The fly-half was hauled down short but the ball was recycled and spread wide to Sioned Harries, who released Jamie Kift to score.
Wales extended their lead with a superb try on 28 minutes. James surged down the left wing, on the counter-attack and went outside Caroline Collie. She drew the full-back and passed inside to Jamie Kift, who flicked a sublime inside pass for Taylor to crash over.
Wales finished the half on a high with Tuttiet scorching through the midfield and coming agonisingly close to the whitewash. And Day sniped over from close-range following some strong forward drives. Thomas was unable to convert but the try had given Wales a 15-0 lead at the interval.
Just six minutes of the second-half had past when Day slide over for her second try. But Wales were unable to build on their 20-point lead with wholesale changes disrupting the flow of the game. Scotland continued to battle but their cause was not helped when Sarah Dixon was sent to the sin-bin.
A Laura Prosser dart at the base of a ruck almost released Taylor for her second but the openside flanker was tackled short and penalised for holding onto the ball.
Wales were dealt a blow when Rebecca De Filippo was shown yellow for a ruck offence but the Dragons held on to keep their try-line intact.
