    Goodnight all

    That's your lot for today I'm afraid, I'm off for my post-match warm-down.

    I'll be back next week though for an action packed day of action which starts with Scotland v Tonga (kick-off 14:30), followed by Ireland v Australia (16:30), Wales v New Zealand (17:30) and rounded off by England v Samoa (19:00).

    England will go into that match on the back of a five-match losing streak - surely they will get back to winning ways next weekend.

    Until then, adios.

    It's award time!

    Performance of the day: The entire Scottish team, who gave it their all at Murrayfield.

    Try of the day: David Wilson finishing off a spectacular driving maul under the posts for England.

    Tackle of the day: Julian Savea's crunching hit on Scotland flanker Blair Cowan, whose bones are probably still rattling.

    Villain of the day: Fiji prop Campese Ma'afu, whose two yellow cards led to his dismissal and ruined the visitors' chance of beating Wales.

    Hero of the day: New coach Vern Cotter, for breathing life back into the Scotland team.

    Review: Scotland 16-24 New Zealand

    And finally, Scotland against New Zealand. With a record of 28 wins and two draws in 30 Tests against the Scots the visitors - even fielding a second-string side - were expected to win comfortably in Edinburgh.

    But a youthful Scotland side, given freedom to play by new coach Vern Cotter, came out and gave it everything and could have taken the lead inside the last 20 minutes.

    In the end it was not to be as the world champions eventually asserted themselves, but brighter days surely lie ahead for a developing Scottish team.

    Review: Wales 17-13 Fiji

    Gatland

    Despite tripping up against Fiji in the past, Wales were expected to brush the Pacific Islanders aside at the Millennium, but after a promising start it did not work out like that.

    Wales boss Warren Gatland uttered the word 'frustration' at least a dozen times when he faced the media after the uninspiring 17-13 victory over Fiji in Cardiff. So it's fair to say he was very frustrated.

    "We probably weren't clinical enough behind, and we had too many turnovers that allowed them to stay in the game. It was a bit of a dogfight," says Gatland.

    Review: England 28-31 South Africa

    The big game of the day was England against South Africa, the 2003 world champions against the 1995 and 2007 World Cup winners.

    But the past few years have not been kind to England in this fixture and they have now gone 12 matches without a victory against the Boks.

    They were level at 20-20 with half an hour to play, but the Boks drew inexorably away and it took a late try to make it look closer than it was, for the second week in a row - Tom Fordyce was our man watching on at Twickenham.

  7. Post update

    The world champions remain unbeatable, South Africa continue their dominance over England and Wales are too good for Fiji - on paper it looks as though everything went as expected this afternoon.

    The truth, though, is a little different - in the latter two cases at least...

    "It would be a stretch to suggest that Scotland deserved to win the match, but it may still feel like one that got away. The roof would've come off Murrayfield had Greig Laidlaw - who was superb again incidentally - managed to knock that kick over to nudge Scotland ahead with less than 10 minutes remaining. Alas, we'll never know how the All Blacks would have reacted. One thing is sure, they'll know they've been in a game and the Scots can take great heart from that."

    "It will be interesting to see what New Zealand coach Steve Hansen makes of this, because it wasn't like Scotland were clinging on.

    "They were well in this game for long periods and we didn't expect Greig Laidlaw to miss that kick which would have put Scotland ahead.

    "But it was a great performance by Scotland and when they have got over the disappointment of this defeat they will be encouraged. They were running the ball from their own 22 and can take confidence from that."

  22. Full time

    Scotland 16-24 New Zealand

    Thirty matches, a 28th defeat, but pride, at least, for the Scots on this occasion.

    A young Scottish side showed ambition, fight and more than a little skill, but ultimately they lacked the class to overcome an All Black side that bore little resemblance to the side that has bestrode the world for the past few years.

    The All Black machine glides on unencumbered, but hope for Scotland that brighter times lie around the corner. Although probably not a future that includes ever beating the All Blacks.

    One day they might do it, but today is not going to be that day.

    Gavin Hastings

    Former Scotland full-back on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "That was everything you expect from New Zealand. The only surprise is that it has taken them 74 minutes to find that breakthrough. Nonetheless it is a very well-worked try. Scotland couldn't get far enough from their try line and all the experience, angles and training-ground moves were used by the New Zealanders. There was plenty of relief on their faces."

  26. Post update

    Chris Paterson

    Former Scotland full-back on BBC Two

    "Thrush has been mightily impressive with his ball-carrying today, he has been one of the few to make sustained breaks over the gain line. But you still have to believe if you are in a Scottish jersey right now."

  27. Converted try

    Scotland 16-24 New Zealand (Thrush, con Slade)

    Has Scotland's chance been and gone?

    It looks like it has.

    The visitors mount a powerful attack and second row Jeremy Thrush thunders onto Sam Cane's pass to score from close range.

    Colin Slade converts and - finally - it looks as though there is only going to be one winner.

    Surely the All Blacks will suddenly click into gear?

    It was like Jonny Gray was suddenly struck by agoraphobia just then. New Zealand spilled the ball inside the Scottish 22 and when Gray picked up he had 80m of open space in front of him.

    The New Zealand line-out is falling apart and yet another turnover leads to a shot at goal for the hosts.

    It's like the All Blacks have just woken up to the fact they're losing.

    The visitors pounce on a Scottish error, move it through the hands and TJ Perenara tries to burrow over - the TMO will make the decision, and the ABs have a penalty coming anyway.

    If Perenara has got that down it's an amazing finish as he was on his back and held by about five Scottish defenders.

  90. Try

    Scotland 0-5 New Zealand (Vito)

    Dan Carter has played less than one and a half matches since returning from nearly a year out with a broken leg.

    And he'll get another shot at goal after Victor Vito rampages 40 metres to score the opening try of the match.

    A simple missed tackle from Alex Dunbar gives the number eight a glimpse of the line and there's no stopping him, despite Stuart Hogg's despairing tackle.

    Carter has 1,448 Test points but he'll not add to them with that conversion attempt as he goes nought for two on the night.

    Yes the All Blacks have made 13 changes, and yes, one of those involves calling up a hooker who wasn't initially in their squad and who expected to be celebrating his third wedding anniversary in Paris this weekend, rather than winning his first cap.

    "If you don't turn pressure into points, you are going to get caught out. And Wales aren't doing that.

    "Fiji are a man short, Wales should be working the overlap but I've not seen a dummy runner since the first try."

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Little over 15 minutes left for Wales to use their extra man wisely and pile on the points. But it just isn't happening at the moment as the home side look devoid of confidence and attacking ideas. And the All Blacks are turning up in Cardiff next week remember...

    "Here are the changes and not before time.

    "What a great opportunity now for George Ford and Ben Youngs.

    "I used to love coming on in a game when England were behind as that's the challenge you relish."

  177. Replacements

    England 20-25 South Africa

    Owen Farrell

    Dreadful from England. You could tell Owen Farrell was going to pass it back inside to Anthony Watson at least three seconds before he did so, and if I can spot it you can guarantee the slavering beasts in the Boks back row were not going to miss it.

    Farrell is promptly replaced along with half-back partner Danny Care - on come George Ford and Ben Youngs.

  178. Ouch!

    England 20-25 South Africa

    Owen Farrell looks to be in some trouble. He aims for a high kick but slices it badly and limps afterwards. Is this it for him today?

    Edson Charikinya: A clear stamping on the man on the ground there, it should be a yellow for England. Good call Steve Walsh again.

    James Standen: Dylan Hartley lets England down last week and does this week!! Muppet.

  181. Sin-bin

    England 20-25 South Africa

    The TMO suggests referee Steve Walsh looks at a replay of Dylan Hartley at a ruck. The hooker makes contact with a South African leg on the ground with his boot and he is sin-binned.

    There is an immediate let-off for the hosts as South Africa decide to kick to touch and instead launch it dead - but a man down and five points behind, this does not look good for England.

  182. No try

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    To use Phillip Matthews' words (see below)...the Fijians are going more nuts than a pack of dry roasted. They throw the ball around like the Harlem Globetrotters, working it out to the right where Waisea Nayacalevu is ready to pounce. The winger goes over the line - but not after he had been shoved into touch by Liam Williams.

    Owen Farrell grimaces after kicking a penalty to touch but looks set to continue. South Africa win a kickable penalty as England infringe at a line-out.

    Gareth in Watford: There is no point picking an intuitive, ball playing inside centre like Kyle Eastmond if you have stodge on either side of him. Farrell is standing so deep at fly and Barritt is positionally awful at outside centre. The result is that Eastmond's outstanding distribution abilities are wasted and he becomes international rugby's smallest (ergo least effective) battering ram 12. Pointless.

    Campese, what have you done? Fiji prop Campese Ma'afu was sin-binned in the first half and he receives another yellow card for tugging at Bradley Davies in the line-out.

    Two strikes and you're out my friend. Ma'afu doesn't exit with the speed of his Australian namesake though - he saunters down the Millennium Stadium tunnel with the speed of an annoyed front-rower...

  193. No try

    Wales 17-6 Fiji - Dan Lydiate

    Clear daylight for Wales. Oh, at least the home players thought it was. The home pack drives forward as a wall of white Fijian shirts crumble quicker than a digestive biscuit. Bodies are piled all over the try line and referee Pascal Gauzere goes to his mate in the stands to get a video decision. Most think Dan Lydiate legally reaches out for the line - except for the officials. No try.

  194. Try

    England 20-25 South Africa (Burger, Lambie missed con)

    South Africa celebrate

    This is turning into a brutal encounter.

    The Boks are still down to 14 men but they win an attacking line-out, launch the latest in a series of driving mauls and score when veteran flanker Schalk Burger bursts over in the corner.

    Pat Lambie cannot convert from the touchline, but what a 10 minutes of play at Twickenham.

    There can be fewer sights more viscerally thrilling than a driving maul in world sport. This time it is South Africa, who drive to within a few metres before England infringe.

    Wow.

    England once again maul South Africa to pieces, driving 30m from a line-out before Big Ben Morgan, on for Billy Vunipola at number eight, breaks off and powers over the line.

    The Boks down to 14, England rampant thanks to the driving power of their pack - this is anyone's.

    Campese Ma'afu comes back on to the field for Fiji. Or George David Campese Ma'afu to give him his full name. We won't tire of telling you that the Nottingham player is named after the Wallabies legend. Sorry.

    Anyway...the Pacific Islanders are back to their full complement as Wales begin to lose their way. Very bitty from Warren Gatland's men as they fail to press their numerical advantage further.

    Bang, right back in it.

    When England win a kickable penalty and go to the corner there is some debate as to whether it is the right decision - well. score like that and it most certainly is.

    With South Africa's Victor Matfield in the sin bin England win the line-out and launch a rampaging driving maul which ends with giant Bath prop David Wilson barrelling over under the sticks.

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Wales come out roaring in the opening stages of the second half. The Fiji defence is creaking, the whitewash of their line sparkles in the sight of the Welsh, but they can't scramble over.

    Dan Lydiate crawls out of the tackle and along the Millennium Stadium turf in search of the five points - and is rightly punished. "White line fever that is," remarks ex-Wales fly-half Jonathan Davies....
