  1. Sliding to Japan like...

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    That's that for Scotland's four warm-up Tests. After a horror show in Nice, it's three victories on the spin and a bit of momentum.

    Next stop is Yokohama to play Ireland on the 22nd September. The excitement is building!

  2. Extent of injuries unclear- Townsend

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Gregor Townsend wasn't sure about the extent of the injuries to Jonny Gray, Ben Toolis, Blair Kinghorn, Jamie Ritchie and Blade Thomson: "We had two players with head injuries and they didn't come back on, they'll go through the normal concussion protocols. A couple of guys had tight hamstrings. Jamie Ritchie's going to the hospital for a scan later tonight, so that's five players in a match so there will be quite a lot to look at over the next few days."

  3. Townsend pleased with final flurry

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has been speaking on Sportsound: "This week we weren't as accurate and they had more opportunities to show what they could do. They showed a more varied game today. It was pleasing that we did put things right later on in the game and finishing with a couple of tires made it a nicer win than it probably was.

    On the performances of Sam Johnson and Duncan Taylor, he said: "On first viewing I think they got involved in attack and worked hard in defence. The pleasing thing ins Duncan managed 80 minutes. I'm sure when I see his GPS stats tomorrow they'll be through the roof as they usually are."

    Quote Message: Beat Ireland and anything is possible for this team, on our day we can do it. We need to be accurate in everything we do.

    Andy Burke

    BBC Sport Scotland

    Scotland without Finn Russell are a completely different team.

  6. Cummings' stock keeps rising

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    We've been hearing a lot about another Cummings in the news recently, but 22-year-old Scott Cummings is growing into a Test player by the week.

    Having only made his debut two-and-a-half weeks ago he continues to go from strength to strength. Mobile around the pitch, quick and powerful, he reminds me of, dare I say it, Richie Gray.

    With Ben Toolis and Jonny Gray now lingering injury doubts after tonight, could this man complete a fairy-tale rise by starting in the second-row against Ireland in 16 days time?

    Former Scotland prop on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Stuart Hogg, Finn Russell, Greig Laidlaw , Stuart McInally , Hamish Watson and John Barclay are the only shoo-ins to start against Ireland for me.
  8. 'Seymour under pressure'

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Peter Wright

    Former Scotland prop on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: I think Tommy Seymour's under pressure. I think it'll be Sean Maitland and Darcy Graham on the wings, Graham was man of the match tonight. I think Seymour's battling for form, he did alright tonight though but he's not in great form.
  9. Get Involved

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Matt: Should have watched that rather than the football!

    Kevin: Well done at least our national pride is still intact with one sport.

    Scotland's footballers have just lost 2-1 to Russia. Sigh.

  10. Townsend addresses Murrayfield crowd

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    After 53,000 fans turned up for tonight's World Cup send-off, Gregor Townsend has given them the courtesy of a goodbye message before heading to Japan.

    "Thank you for your support tonight. It means a lot to us. We are very proud this group of men- we've worked hard for two months," he said. "We will give it our best effort."

  11. Graham the man for Ireland?

    FT Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    On form, this man has to start against Ireland. Five tries in seven Test appearances for Darcy Graham now, and he was immense tonight again.

    The power he possesses for a man of his size is incredible, and he put in a couple of big hits on loose forwards tonight. Not to mention his searing pace and clinical finishing.

  12. 'We can't start like that in Japan' - Harris

    FT Scotland 36 - 9 Georgia

    Scotland centre Chris Harris on Sportsound: "We knew they were going to front up, it wasn’t going to be an easy game. We stared really poorly. The positive is we didn’t concede a try. But we cannot start like that at the World Cup."

  13. The good and bad

    FT: Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Positives? Six tries, solid defence and impressive performance from youngsters Darcy Graham and Scott Cummings.

    Negatives? Too many errors, a mess at the scrum, and a couple of lingering injury concerns for Ben Toolis and Jonny Gray.

  14. Full-time- Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    That's that. It was a pretty error-strewn performance by Scotland but three late tries have put a fair old gloss on the scoreline. Six tries though, not bad for an off day.

    Scotland win
  15. Post update

    Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Ryan Wilson, Scotland's captain on the night, gets involved in some handbags. Georgia have a scrum just inside their own half with a minute left. Can they salvage something?

  16. Try- Scotland 36-9 Georgia

    Pete Horne

    It's all falling apart for Georgia.

    It's a bizarre decision by the so far impressive fly-half Teto Abzhanadze to go or a chip-kick on his own line. Pete Horne gathers it as he falls to ground, gets up unchallenged and strolls under the posts.

    Adam Hastings adds the extras and suddenly it's a rout.

    Scotland 29 - 9 Georgia

    Peter Wright

    Quote Message: They've upped the tempo. Its good. What I don’t like is George Horne doing a somersault then putting the ball down. Call me old fashioned, but it's disrespectful.
  18. Try- Scotland 29-9 Georgia

    George Horne

    The poacher strikes again.

    Georgia are beginning to tire. Adam Hastings just trucks it up, and a ruck is formed. Horne picks it up and, in the absence of any fringe defence, waltzes over. Hastings converts from in front of the posts.

  19. Try- Scotland 22-9 Georgia

    Darcy Graham

    Boom, that's surely the game. It's a decent move by Scotland, but shocking defence.

    Adam Hastings pulls the ball back to Duncan Taylor who, from a standing start, rips one out to Chris Harris. Georgia's winger steps in and allows Darcy Graham to receive a pass and scamper in at the corner.

    Hastings can't convert.

    Quote Message: We'll get enough injuries that Richie Gray will decide its okay to come out and play.
