Target: Liam Williams wants to help Wales bounce back

Wales will aim to get their RBS 6 Nations campaign back on track this weekend - and there could be a few Wilfried Bony-style dance moves to accompany any victory over Scotland.

The Manchester City and former Swansea striker's goal celebration would probably top any list of the unexpected at Murrayfield on Sunday, but Wales wing Liam Williams might have other ideas.

Williams, who replaces a rested George North against Scotland, has already thrown some Bony-type shapes on the rugby pitch.

His try celebration for the Scarlets against Welsh regional rivals the Ospreys earlier this season drew comparisons with Bony, who Williams knows through the Ivory Coast star's former Swansea team-mate Ashley (Jazz) Richards.

And a repeat performance in Edinburgh cannot be ruled out after a week when Wales faced the music following their dismal 21-16 home defeat against England.

"The first thing is to think of the team and do whatever it takes for them," Williams said. "It's about working hard, sticking to the game-plan and getting the win.

"If I am lucky enough to get a try, happy days.

"I may celebrate, I may not - I have to score first. It's international rugby, and tries are not exactly easy to come by."

England prop David Wilson has been ruled of the remaining four matches of the RBS 6 Nations with a neck injury that requires surgery.

Wilson suffered nerve impingement during training two weeks ago and while the initial prognosis on his availability for Friday's 21-16 victory over Wales was positive, he was subsequently ruled out.

"He's booked in for an operation to relieve the nerve impingement he has," head coach Stuart Lancaster said.
