Rugby union rising star Alistair Price, who was born in Lynn, shone when making his first start for Scotland at Murrayfield.

Playing scrum half for Scotland on Saturday against Wales, he had replaced sidelined skipper Greg Laidlaw.

Price was praised when he pulled off a try-saving tackle and played 55 minutes in total before being replaced by Henry Pyrgos.

The 23-year-old Glasgow Warriors player Price was educated at Wisbech Grammar School.

A spirited second-half performance earned injury-hit Scotland their first Six Nations win over Wales since 2007, with a 29-13 result.

Alasdair Dickinson, WP Nel, Sean Maitland, Duncan Taylor, Laidlaw and Josh Strauss were all sidelined for the hosts.

The home side had been 13-9 behind at the interval.

The Scots’ success ended Wales’s run of four consecutive wins in Edinburgh.
