  • COMMENTARY
  • SOCIAL
  • Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
    '
  • Scotland put forward a great effort this evening, but were just not clinical enough to beat New Zealand. The All Blacks scored three second-half tries to put themselves in command, but Gregor Townsend's men came roaring back into the match. Alex Dunbar's late score gave them hope, only to be denied at the death.

  • FULL-TIME: SCOTLAND 17-22 NEW ZEALAND
    '
  • SO CLOSE!!!! Hogg bursts through the New Zealand line and surges down the line, but Barrett just does enough to force him wide and with no time remaining his offload travels forward. That ends the match. What an effort from the home side!
    80''
  • Russell sends the extras through the posts and it's game on now.

    79''
  • New Zealand scored out of nothing earlier, now it's Scotland's turn as Huw Jones touches down. Hogg created the open with a forward run and a grubber kick. Seymour gathered and then produced the offload at the perfect moment to set Jones free for the score. It all came from timewasting from Harris at the lineout, which presented the home side with a free-kick at the half-way line.

    75''
  • Scotland rue the decision to go for the scrum as the All Blacks turn on the power and win the penalty by wheeling the home side's pack around. That could be the decisive moment in the game.
    73''
  • Scotland knock the ball on five metres from the line, but Barrett is caught offside so the home side's assault on the line continue.

    69''
  • Out of nothing New Zealand extend their lead as Williams crashes through a tackle and offloads to McKenzie. With a man over in space the full-back tees up Barrett to sprint forward and touch down for the try. Even though they're down to 14 men the All Blacks take command of the game.

  • Another penalty for Scotland as Russell kicks the ball quickly and goes for the line. Cane tries to slow them down, but he does so illegally and will be punished.
    61''

    52''

    49''

    45''

    41''

    41''

  • Scotland will be delighted with their first-half efforts as they are level with New Zealand at the break. Finn Russell put the Scots ahead with a short kick from a penalty, but spurned the opening to extend their advantage by firing wide. The All Blacks upped the ante before the interval and tied the scores at 3-3 as Beauden Barrett kicked over. Both sides have had their moments in the final third, but neither have been clinical enough yet to find the tryline.

    27''
  • Barrett sends the ball into touch at the five-metre line. The All Blacks are going for the try here.

  • STAT ATTACK! None of the current Scotland squad were born the last time they avoided defeat against the All Blacks – a 25-25 draw in 1983.
    '
  • STAT ATTACK! The All Blacks have won their last 18 in a row against Scotland with those victories coming by an average margin of 25 points.
    '
  • STAT ATTACK! Scotland have faced New Zealand 30 times without victory, losing 28 and drawing twice.
    '
  • Codie Taylor comes into the New Zealand line-up to replace the injured Dane Coles, who ruptured his ACL last week. Kieran Read provides a fitness boost for the All Blacks as he has overcome a groin injury to make the start today.
    '
  • Scotland have had to make two changes to the side that beat Samoa last week. Prop Zander Fagerson replaces WP Nel, while Cornell Du Preez comes into the side at number eight for the injured Ryan Wilson.

    '
  • We'll now take a look at the two sides this afternoon.
    '
  • New Zealand were on course for a hammering of France at the Stade de France last week, but were forced to battle in the second half. A late score made the match seem more comfortable as Waisake Naholo scored a late try to secure a 20-point win. Steve Hansen's men were dominant in the first half and the same level of form should see off the Scots this afternoon.
    '
  • Scotland extended their winning run to five matches on the bounce on home soil with a victory over Samoa last week. It was a high-scoring contest as both sides found the tryline with regularity. Gregor Townsend will know that his side face the ultimate test today and will have to be at their best just to compete with the All Blacks.

  • Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Autumn International clash between Scotland and New Zealand at Murrayfield.
