Postive start here from Russia who keep ball in hand and start to test the Scottish defence. They eventually kick high and Scotland win possession for the first time.
5'
Scotland make some good ground and quickly get themselves inside Russian territory before they lose possession and Russia then win a penalty as there is finally a break in play.
8'
Scotland try to exploit some gaps in the Russia defence as Graham makes a good run before losing the ball forward which will give us the first scrum of the day.

Russia make a good break following a free-kick from the scrum. Scotland win possession back and put the ball to the boot but the kick is too far and Russia have a 22m dropout.
12'
Scotland win a penalty and kick for the corner. They win the line-out but the maul doesn't get much momentum and Graham takes the ball into contact at pace and loses the ball forward.
14'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 5-0: Scotland win the put in at the scrum and Hastings spots some space as he cuts through the Russian defence and powers over.
15'

18'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 7-0: Scotland keep the ball alive and chip ahead and Hastings wins the footrace as he kicks into the ingoal area and Artemyev can't dot down which allows Hastings to finish his second try.
19'
HASTINGS, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 14-0: Hastings with 14 points to his name already and Scotland halfway to their bonus point.
21'
Russia get pinned back by a good kick and have a defensive line-out on their 5m line.
23'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HORNE! 19-0: Dismal from Russia and Scotland capitalizes. A defensive line-out from Russia sees a long pass thrown from the back of the maul and Horne reads it like a book as he intercepts it inside the in-goal area and dots down.
24'
CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 21-0: Hastings with another conversion and it's just the start Scotland would have wanted.
28'
It is all Scotland at the moment who are dominating possession and Hastings finds touch inside the Russian 22m as they continue to pile on the pressure in search of that all-important fourth try.
30'
Russia manages to clear further upfield from the line-out but Scotland once again with a clear plan as they draw the defence up before again kicking behind and finding touch deep inside the Russian 22m. Early change for Scotland as Brown makes way for Bradbury.
33'
Scotland continue to play the territorial game and they force a clearance kick which gifts them a line-out on the Russian 22m.

Scotland lose the ball forward as the Russian defence holds up well and Russia will have a defensive scrum with five minutes remaining in the half.
38'
Russia just can't seem to get out of their half as several scrums follow each other inside Russian territory. Scotland win another win on the 22m.
40'
HLAF-TIME: SCOTLAND 21-0 RUSSIA! Scotland well in control and Russia look very tired. A good opening period put Scotland well in charge and they need just one more try to get the vital bonus point.
40'
Russia defence holds up brilliantly as they see off almost two minutes of pick and goes from Scotland before they force a knock-on after the buzzer has sounded.
41'
Kick off! The second half is underway.
43'
Some great defence from Russia who manages to drag Scotland into touch and win a line-out in an attacking position but as they tried to et the maul they lose the ball forward.
45'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HORNE! 26-0: The perfect counter-attack. Graham fields a kick ahead and spots some forwards ahead of him as he motors through a gap and with 10m to go, he pops to Horne who dives over.
47'
CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 28-0: The best kick of the night so far as Hastings splits the poles from out wide.

CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 42-0: Another perfect kick from the flyhalf from the touchline.
59'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HORNE! 47-0: Fantastic work from the scrummy who now finds himself on the wing. He catches a deep kick and finds a man out wide and runs a good supporting line for Ritchie who finds Horne and eventually dives over for his hat trick.
60'
A rare miss from Hastings who cannot convert on this occasion.
62'
Scotland win a scrum inside their own half as Russia's fatigue really begins to show.
64'
Horne is over for his fourth but the TMO gets involved and the final pass is deemed to have drifted forward and Russia survive that one.
67'
Russia do well to get into Scottish territory as they kick ahead and regather. They look to go through the phases and slowly make some ground before winning a penalty at the breakdown.
69'
The throw-in from the line-out is deemed to be skew and Scotland win a scrum inside their 22m. Just not been Russia's night.

76'
TRY, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 54-0: An easy kick for Hastings as he gets back on the board.
78'

79'
CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, HASTINGS! 61-0: Brilliant kick to take Hastings points tally of the match to 26.
