Samoa 26 Scotland 36

10 Oct 2015

72'Fotuali'i looks like he managed to get his knee under that... he has! Brilliant work by the Samoan captain. Scotland have a penalty however as Samoa were offside.

Scotland will have another lineout, this is just 6m from the Samoan line.

70' - Sean Lamont is on for Scotland, this is his 100th international!

10 Oct 2015

10 Oct 2015

68' - Lamont makes a brilliant midfield break for Scotland he is eventually brought to ground, Samoa turn the ball over, Autagavaia busts down the left-wing, kicks ahead, collects but Scotland somehow bring him to ground and come away with the ball... unbelievable passage of play!

10 Oct 2015

66' - Scotland just outside their own 22m area, they rumble the ball to the 10m line before Laidlaw kicks, but its too far, the Samoans collect and come charging back at Scotland. They eventually run out of space and are tackled into touch. Great defence by Scotland. 

10 Oct 2015

63' - Laidlaw has missed out to the left... will that be costly?

10 Oct 2015

62' - Levave is penalised for clearing out Denton by pulling him by his neck. Scotland set up a lineout and win another penalty when Samoa take out the Scottish jumper in the air. Laidlaw will have a chance to further extend the Scots lead.

58' - Another penalty but against Scotland at the breakdown. Denton the man penalised and Pisi will set up a lineout in the Scottish 22m area. 

10 Oct 2015

56' - Laidlaw cannot extend the Scots lead, his kick has the distance but drifts past the uprights. 

10 Oct 2015

54' - Scotland turn the ball over and both Nel and Hardie are smashed back by two HUGE tackles! Pisi the man making the second one. 

Scotland win a penalty at the breakdown yet again.  That's 7 penalties in 15 minutes in the second half concede by Samoa. It's going to cost them. Laidlaw will kick at post.

10 Oct 2015

45' - Another incredible brilliant break by Lee-Lo but he unfortunately passes to a Scottish player instead of one of his own. 

10 Oct 2015

10 Oct 2015

42' - Samoa gift Scotland a penalty with some silly cross-running, causing obstruction. Russell sets up a lineout in the Samoan 22m area. They going to try to maul it over for sure!
