  • Live Commentary

    Time:80'
    • Scotland
    • Georgia
    • FT There is the final whistle and Scotland have the win but there is little to be pleased about in that performance
    • 80' The lineout is lost by Georgia and Scotland have just a few seconds left to control the ball for. They will have a put in to the scrum
    • 78' De Luca is penalised for offside and bizarrely, instead of going for the posts, Georgia kick for the corner for one last attempt at a try.
    • 76' PENALTY SCOTLAND! 15-6! Georgia are penalised from coming in from the side and Scotland will have another kick at the posts. And Parks drills the ball in between the posts after taking the maximum amount of time allowed to set it up
    • 72' PENALTY GEORGIA! 12-6! Only just on the pitch by a matter of seconds, Richie Grey gives away a penalty which Kvirikashvili duly kicks to reduce to deficit down to six points once again. What a waste from Scotland
    • 71' PENALTY SCOTLAND! 12-3! Better from Parks as he adds another three points to Scotland’s tally as the clock ticks over to just less than 10 minutes left
    • 70' Georgia are penalised for offside and Parks will have yet another chance to kick for points and put this match out of Georgia’s reach
    • 66' Rory Lamont makes a break on the wing but he doesn’t have too much support. He does well to skip past the first tackle before offloading well just before being pushed into touch. He only has Nathan Hines and Jim Hamilton in support though and they have barely received the ball before three more big Georgians come charging over and shove them both into touch
    • 63' Scotland get a penalty just inside Georgia's half when the Georgians are again penalised at the scrum. Parks opts to take a shot at goal but his kick falls short once again when his accuracy lets him down. He had the distance though
    • 60' Max Evans gets absolutely hammered by Zibzibadze after collecting a high ball but he does brilliantly well to retain possession
    • 58' Kelly Brown does brilliantly well and forces the error from Georgia, who fail to release so that Scotland to regain possession and kick for the corner again. It’s all Scotland at the moment except for their slopping handling errors
    • 56' Scotland finally making their pressure tell as Hines breaks off a Hamilton ball. They get dragged down and Parks decides to kick across field for Lamont, clear on the left wing. Lamont collects but as he lands he steps into touch with his left foot. It'll be Georgian ball
    • 53' Parks puts in another very good kick upfield and right into the corner. It’s a Georgian lineout and they do well to collect it before Kvirikashvili makes 35m with a clearance kick despite being hammered by Kelly Brown
    • 51' Kvirikashvili attempts a very long range drop goal attempt from the half way line. But the ball catches a Scottish hand on the way through and is well short allowing Scotland to regain possession
    • 49' Another poor clearance kick from Georgia sees Sean Lamont collect. But he spills the ball forward in a tackle again before lashing out at it, only to kick a Georgian player right in the stomach by accident. That’s going to hurt. Lamont put his full force behind that!
    • 46' Sean Lamont breaks, slipping through a couple of tackles before offloading to Strokosch. But Strokosch loses the ball forward in a tackle
    • 43' Scotland look to turn the screws as they push for the tryline. Hamilton comes in from the side but Clancy completely misses the infringement and Georgia fairly turn the ball over before booting upfield and clearing the danger
    • 41' The second half underway.
    • 40' Georgia put together a promising move and a rolling maul gets them to within 10m off the Scotland line. Zirakashvili breaks free before being brought down by Parks just marginally short. He is held up though and referee Clancy blows for halftime
    • 39' DROP GOAL SCOTLAND! 9-3! Parks takes full advantage of some good play by his forwards before thumping a drop goal in between the posts to put a bit more distance in between his side at Georgia
    • 37' Georgia attempt to get a rolling maul going but get blown up for obstruction. They are not getting much of the luck at the moment
    • 34' PENALTY SCOTLAND! 6-3! Another kick from Parks, this time from the sideline and he does well with it to give his side the lead for the first time
    • 33' De Luca finds Lamont, who is stopped on Georgia's 22 before losing the ball forward. Georgia kick into touch and then concede the penalty for another infringement at the ruck. Clancy warns the Georgian skipper that they are on their last warning
    • 29' Evans and Lamont combine well again on the right wing to make a decent break but the Georgian defence holds firm and Scotland are forced to work through the phases
    • 27' Todua breaks down the right wing before offloading to Basilaia but he tries to put in a grubber kick to get past Evans only to kick the ball out into touch. Promising move from Georgia but in the end nothing came of it
    • 26' Parks has another chance to kick points for Scotland and this time has the height and distance from practically the halfway line but just doesn't have the direction as his ball drifts wide
    • 24' PENALTY SCOTLAND! 3-3! This time Parks does makes his kick to level the scores but to be fair it was right between the posts.
    • 22' Rory Lamont breaks before finding Evans inside in support. Evans is stopped but the fullback and winger are beginning to cause some problems for Georgia now
    • 21' Scotland get the penalty as Basilaia failed to release Lamont after they went down but Dan Parks pulled a horrible kick well wide of the left upright. He probably didn't have the distance or the height either such was the shocking nature of the kick and Scotland are still to get off the mark
    • 21' Basilaia is down on the ground suffering after a collision between his jaw and Rory Lamont's right hip
    • 20' PENALTY GEORGIA! 0-3! Kvirikashvili can kick some and sends an early warning sign to Scotland as he lands a huge penalty kick from inside his own half!
    • 15' Basilaia makes a break for Georgia before offloading to Todua on the right wing but Rory Lamont stops him and Todua spills the ball forward
    • 11' Parks finds Evans who tries to just tap the ball on to Morrison on his outside, but the centre is not expecting the ball so quickly and it bounces off his chest as the move breaks down
    • 10' Commentators curse has struck as the rain is now lashing down around Invercargill and making things pretty tricky for the players ...
    • 7' Georgia are clearly fired up early on as they lose the ball for Scotland to thump upfield for another lineout. Scotland have not had too much possession so far
    • 5' It's a bit slippery out there but not bad conditions and Kvirikashvili will be disappointed with a poor attempt at a drop goal that he pulls miles wide of the left upright
    • 2' Huge tackling from Georgia see Scotland lose the ball and the Georgians thump the ball clear to get out of early trouble
    • 1' Scotland get a very early penalty as Georgia are penalised for pulling down a maul ... Parks kicks upfield for a lineout and early drive to the line
    • 1' Georgia get the first half underway ...
