- Scotland 60-14 Tonga
- Kyle Steyn scores four tries, including first-half hat-trick
A solid team performance enhanced by some moments of individual brilliance saw Scotland kick off their Autumn Nations Series campaign with a 10-try victory at Murrayfield. Kyle Steyn became his country’s first player this century to score four tries in a Test match, but Rufus McLean’s contribution was no less important as his two tries ensured the home team got off to a reassured start.
McLean’s double, Steyn’s first three and a Pierre Schoeman touchdown all came in a first half, which ended with the home side 36-9 ahead.
