Cynical play from Foley and he gets 10 mins on the pine

The way the Aussies are hitting the rucks seem slightly dodgy.

Cynical play from Foley after a very good play from Russell.

Great quick take of the 22 drop and Russell forces a penalty and a yellow card. Great play

Positives for Scotland.

Russell - has been amazing, he runs such good lines and has an amazing ability to read the game.

Watson & Barclay - the breakdown is Scotland's and these 2 are the reason why.

Duncan Taylor - I'd say he's the form player in the Scotland camp right now!

In fairness to Tonks, who I think has had a very good first half, Folau is one of the best in the world in the air.

Not that I want to bring the Lions tour into this but a couple of those lads were more than worthy of Lions selection, especially Taylor.

Again I question the entry of the Aussies into the rucks. It cannot be legal...

Try there though.

Finn Russell has been utterly outstanding, and so has the Mish. Terrific performances. Also Tonks has looked quite assured apart from being too short to compete with Falou in the air.

So close there by Russell. The ball just drifted forward. That would've been something special.

Its just frustrating how certain players have these myths about them. Win, lose or draw Russell has been the best player on the pitch for me. Excellent in attack and defensively strong. Again...

C'mon Scotland, some of these lads are showing how daft Gatlands selections were in the first place, even worse that he overlooked them again !!! For some Welsh club players.

That is two really poor exits from Sotland, surely needed to kick it long rather than go for a dodgy up and under on the 22 metre line. Luckily Aus are wasting their chances
