The Scotland game will always be remembered for one of the greatest conversions in Welsh rugby history. With the score at 18-14 in Scotland's favour, Gerald Davies sprinted over in the corner and bearded back rower John Taylor kicked a superb goal from the sideline to steal the match 19-18.
Ireland came and went, demolished 23-9 by the brilliant half back pairing of Barry John and Gareth Edwards.
The same pair were at the fore in a tense 9-5 victory over France at Stade Colombes. Edwards scored the opening try after a seventy metre break by fullback JPR Williams, before John scooted over for the deciding score.
Wales had secured their sixth Grand Slam and did it by calling on only sixteen players in the four matches of the 1971 Championship season.
