  • Righto lads, Edinburgh you provide the forwards this week, and you over there, Glasgow you can make up the backs.



  • Looking forward to seeing how TNW goes at 10. It was really his ideal position all the time but like DMac he got caught up in team needs and used elsewhere.



  • Still busy waking up, but I think this match will be worth it. Let's go!



  • Wow, Scotland! Try after 1.33 minute!



  • When the commentator said that Scotland wanted to play fast rugby and they started to play that way, I didn't think they would score fast as well.

    Great kick, good bounce, score!



  • TNW missed his first kick at goal; now his second ...
    and the kick is good. Scotland lead 7-3 after 12 minutes.



  • That looked spectacular but the ball was clearly in touch. No try Scotland.



  • Two dumb plays in the last minute there giving Scotland an easy 3 points there.



  • Scotland's goal kicking is on point. It's 13-3 to the Scots after 26 minutes.



  • Pick and go, and Samoa may be over, but it may be hard to see for the TMO .... it looks grounded ...

    try time!!

    TNW makes the conversion: 13 - 10 Scotland



  • Another great try from the Scots. Huw Jones. Whatever Scotland changed in its play, it's working! No conversion. Scotland leads 18 to 10 after 36 minutes.



  • That was poor from Samoa. Mistakes like that can be costly.



  • @stargazer They love making things tough that's for sure.



  • Try Scotland after a driving maul. 41st minute.



  • Half time: Scotland 25 - 10 Samoa.

    Entertaining first half. Scotland impressed.



  • First try of the second half goes to Scotland, again after a driving maul. Stuart McInally again. The conversion is good: 32 - 10 Scotland.



  • Going to the TMO for a possible Samoan try. I think the on-field decision is "no try".



  • Try! Fa’asalele dots down after some pick and go. 32-17 Scotland



  • This new Samoan halfback can't pass for shit.
