  • Thanks for joining our commentary this afternoon. Until next time, goodbye.

  • Scotland are next in action against South Africa next week at Murrayfield, while Fiji take on Uruguay in Gloucester.
    '
  • Scotland secure their first victory of the November Internationals with a hammering of Fiji this afternoon at Murrayfield. Tommy Seymour led the rout with a hat-trick, while Adam Hastings, Jamie Ritchie, Allan Dell, Sean Maitland and Fraser Brown also crossed the tryline. Fiji were in the game in the first half as tries from Semi Radradra and Viliame Mata put them ahead at one point. However, they failed to cope with the home side's set-plays and quick hands in the second half, allowing Gregor Townsend's men to claim a comfortable win.

    77''
  • Scotland are up and going for the line again. Maitland and George Horne carry the ball with power to take their side within inches of another score.
    75''
  • Nakarawa ends the Fiji move by knocking on under pressure from Ritchie. It has not been a classic performance from Fiji in the second half.
    73''
  • Radradra and Gonova combine down the right flank to find space for the visitors. Fiji will want to end the game on a high note after an underwhelming second half.
    72''
  • There's no further try for the home side as Fiji manage to hold their discipline and force the mistake from the home side to clear their lines.
    70''
  • From the lineout, Strauss leads a punishing break over the gainline for the home side. Scotland are inside the Fiji 22 and threatening the tryline once again.
    68''
  • Veitokani tries to go for the interception, but he fails to come up with possession. The referee awards a penalty to the home side and they kick deep into touch.
    67''
  • Fiji have not had much to shout about in the second half and their struggles with the ball continue as Kunatani loses out under pressure in the Scotland 22.
    65''
  • Yato and Talebula are withdrawn for the visitors and replaced by Kunatani and Veitokani.
    64''
  • MISS! Hogg takes over kicking duties and fails to strike the conversion through the posts. Scotland still have their commanding lead.
    63''
  • Seymour has a hat-trick. Fiji are the architects of their own downfall as Volavola fails to find touch from a penalty. Scotland break with pace through George Horne before the ball is spread out wide to the right by Russell. Quick hands sees Seymour burst away down the flank before touching down in the corner.
    62''

  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 33-17 FIJI (SEYMOUR)
    57''
  • Laidlaw sends a kick over the top of the Fiji line towards Seymour on the right, but Radradra is well placed to pluck the ball out of the air. He's carried over the line, which hands Scotland a scrum five metres out.
    55''
  • Scotland keep the pressure on Fiji with another drive for the line, but the visitors get men back to stop Harris' progress down the left. Fiji attempt to carry the ball off their own line before Volavola uses his boot to clear the danger.
    53''
  • A handling error from Vatubua stops a promising attack from the visitors as he fails to corral Volavola's offload. Scotland will have the put-in at the scrum at halfway.
    52''
  • McInally replaces Brown, who has had an inconsistent afternoon.
    52''
  • Scotland cannot capitalise on their penalty as they concede a penalty at the breakdown after their attacking lineout. Gilchrist may have been the guilty party there for hanging on to the ball in the ruck.
    51''
  • Tawake replaces Saulo for the visitors in their front row.
    50''
  • Fiji are back to their full complement of players, but their forwards are still finding life difficult at set-plays. Maafu is penalised at the scrum for not driving straight. Laidlaw kicks deep into touch with the penalty.
    49''
  • Dunbar's last action is his break from his own half. Harris replaces him at centre.
    49''
  • Scotland break on the counter themselves as Dunbar and Skinner combine with a neat exchange to carry their team into the Fiji half of the field.
    47''
  • NO GOOD! Volavola goes for the posts from distance from the resulting penalty, but he fails to send his effort through the posts.
    46''
  • Fiji's speed among their backs allows them to win another penalty at the breakdown. Scotland will be willing to accept the penalty rather than allow the visitors to use their power and pace on the break.
    45''
  • Laidlaw has no problem sending his kick through the posts from close range. Scotland extend their lead to 11 points immediately after the restart.
    43''
  • CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 28-17 FIJI (LAIDLAW)
    43''
  • Fiji struggle to defend their line after a set-play once again. Scotland work the ball from left to right. Horne draws in two tacklers to break to the line. Laidlaw sends the ball out wide to Maitland, who finds enough of a gap to touch down.
    42''
  • TRY! SCOTLAND 26-17 FIJI (MAITLAND)
    42''
  • Better news for Fiji as Cavubati returns to the field from the sin bin.
    42''
  • Not the best of restarts from the visitors as Saulo knocks on. Scotland have a scrum inside the Fiji 22.
    41''
  • Fiji have been bright with the ball in hand with their backs, but their forward line has been vulnerable inside their own 22 under pressure from Scotland. If the visitors can play the game on their terms they have a chance in the second half.
    '
  • Scotland score three tries in the first half to take a narrow lead over Fiji into the break. Allan Dell, Fraser Brown and Tommy Seymour touched down over the line, although the visitors have been dangerous with two tries of their own. Semi Radradra and Viliame Mata both scored, with the former putting his side into a lead in the first half. However, Fiji's lack of discipline cost them towards the end of the first period, allowing the home side to regain the advantage.
    '
  • HALF-TIME: SCOTLAND 21-17 FIJI
    '
  • Laidlaw has his kicking boots on today as he sends a fine effort from the flank between the uprights to send Scotland into the break with a four-point lead.
    40'+2''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 21-17 FIJI (LAIDLAW)
    40'+2''
  • Scotland finally get the ball out of the scrum and move the ball with speed to find the space. Seymour has acres of room to collect Russell's pass on the right flank to dive over the line. Due to their lack of numbers there was bound to be a gap in the Fiji line.
    40'''
  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 19-17 FIJI (SEYMOUR)
    40'''
  • Scotland opt for the scrum from their latest penalty, but the visitors are somehow holding firm, despite their numerical disadvantage.
    39''
  • Yellow Card
    YELLOW CARD! Nakarawa goes into the sin bin for collapsing the maul from another Scotland surge. Fiji are down to 13 men.
    39''
  • Waqaniburotu goes in at the side from the ruck and gets penalised. Scotland's assault on the line continues despite their setback from their previous drive as Nel did lose control before his surge.
    38''
  • Scotland drive for the line again, using their power at the lineout to push Fiji back. Nel goes for the line with a dive, but he may have knocked the ball on before touching down.
    38''
  • Vasiteri takes down Russell on the charge with a high tackle. The referee takes another look, but there's nothing overly sinister other than a penalty. Laidlaw kicks deep into touch.
    37''
  • Scotland issues at the lineout again as Maafu makes the interception for the visitors. He drives forward into the Scotland line, but gets turned over immediately by Ritchie. Here come the home side again on the counter.
    35''
  • TMO! Scotland believe that they're over the line for their third try, but Brown's score is chalked off for a penalty against Ritchie. He seemed to obstruct the Fiji tacklers on the line, creating room for Brown to touch down.
    34''
  • Yellow Card
    Cavubati slows down the ball at the breakdown and is penalised by the referee. He heads into the sin bin.
    34''
  • Scotland still cannot get over the line as Laidlaw's grubber kick fails to find Seymour's run. Volavola touches down, but Scotland have another penalty.
    33''
  • Brown's lineout is gathered cleanly by Gilchrist and a wall of blue pushes the Fiji forwards back towards their own tryline. However, the visitors do enough to keep the maul up and prevent the score. The referee spots an infringement and Scotland will have another opportunity.
    32''
  • Fiji make a mistake immediately from the restart and Scotland win a penalty at the breakdown. Laidlaw kicks for touch deep on the right flank.
    31''
  • Volavola has another simple kick through the posts from close range and he converts with ease.
    30''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 14-17 FIJI (VOLAVOLA)
    30''
  • Fiji's break continues with sharp offloads and Yato is able to feed the outside runner of Radradra into space. The centre is left with a simple finish to race over the line from 20 metres out to touch down uncontested. The visitors' speed has Scotland rattled at the back.
    29''
  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 14-15 FIJI (RADRADRA)
    29''
  • Fiji's pace within their backs sees them surge out of their own half. Lomani carries the ball deep into Scotland territory after Nakarawa's offload travels back to him fortuitously.
    28''
  • Scotland are not quite clicking on the field. Russell makes a mistake under pressure, fumbling an offload from Laidlaw near the breakdown. Fiji attempt to capitalise, but it will be a scrum just outside their 22.
    26''
  • Tuicuvu has been forced off with an injury and is replaced by Vasiteri.
    25''
  • The kick is right under the posts and it's a simple one for Volavola to bring his side within four points.
    24''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 14-10 FIJI (VOLAVOLA)
    24''
  • Fiji are back in the game as Brown makes a mistake overthrowing Gilchrist in the lineout. Matavesi gathers the loose ball and offloads towards Mata. He crunches through three challenges to power his way over from 20 metres out. A super effort from the number eight.
    23''
  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 14-8 FIJI (MATA)
    23''
  • Fiji are able to gather a loose ball from Brown's lineout as Matavesi controls. The home side have the ball in a decent position in the home side's territory, although Tuicuvu goes down with an apparent injury.
    22''
  • Again the conversion is no problem for Laidlaw. This one is more straightforward and he fires the ball through the posts from close range.
    20''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 14-3 FIJI (LAIDLAW)
    20''
  • Scotland eventually get the ball over the line. Fiji cannot resist the second wave of attack as the forwards get the job done for the hosts. Brown collects and works his way to touch down for the try.
    18''
  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 12-3 FIJI (BROWN)
    18''
  • Scotland make a huge surge for the line out of nowhere. Horne has the oppportunity to offload into space for Seymour to touch down, but he fails to release the ball, allowing Goneva to make the tackle short of the line.
    17''
  • Fiji lose possession immediately as Radradra fumbles under pressure from Hogg. The Scotland full-back kicks towards the line, but Volavola gets back to touch down under pressure.
    15''
  • Wilson offloads out right to Seymour on the flank, but he gets pulled up by the referee for a forward pass to the winger. Fiji will have a scrum at half-way.
    14''
  • Laidlaw has an awkward angle to kick for the posts, but he sends his effort through to convert Dell's score.
    13''
  • Conversion
    CONVERSION! SCOTLAND 7-3 FIJI (LAIDLAW)
    13''
  • Dell builds off the work of his team-mates. He collects the ball inches from the line and is able to power his way through two tacklers to touch down.
    12''
  • Try
    TRY! SCOTLAND 5-3 FIJI (DELL)
    12''
  • Maitland and Skinner go for the line, but are held up by the Fiji last line of defence. The home side are inches away from a score.
    11''
  • A high tackle stops Scotland's momentum, while Talebula belives that he has an interception. However, the referee spotted the Fiji infringement and Scotland will go again as Hogg kicks the penalty into touch.
    10''
  • Brown's lineout is collected by the Scots and they surge towards the tryline with numbers.
    10''
  • Talebula is caught offside as Fiji attempt to keep the pressure on the home side, rushing out from the line to tackle Hogg. Scotland kick deep into Fiji territory.
    9''
  • NO GOOD! Volavola fails to send his kick through the posts, slicing his effort well wide of the target. Not a good kick from the Fiji fly-half.
    8''
  • Fagerson is sold short on an offload and it allows Fiji to pile men into the ruck. Horne is penalised at the breakdown, handing Fiji another penalty.
    7''
  • Scotland quell the Fiji attack at the breakdown and are able to bring the ball out to safety before stealing Matavesi's throw at an attacking lineout.
    5''
  • Radradra makes a break out from his own 22 and surges through the Scotland line. He gets support on the inside from Vatubua and Fiji break all the way down inside the Scotland five-yard line before they're stopped.
    4''
  • Volavola makes no mistake with his kick, firing his effort calmly through the posts. The visitors have the lead at Murrayfield.
    3''
  • Penalty Goal
    PENALTY GOOD! SCOTLAND 0-3 FIJI (Volavola)
    3''
  • Fiji force an early penalty from the home side at the breakdown. Wilson fails to roll away after bringing down Vatubua and Volavola will have a chance to go for the posts from 41 metres.
