World Cup Quarter Final revenge is the order of the day and Scotland are the first team to deliver. After a devastating last minute loss two years ago Scotland responded today by putting eight tries past the Wallabies. The result should be put in context though, Australia were down to 14 men for most of the game after a blatant red card for Kepu and it was their last game of the season.
A try from Kurtley Beale just after half-time had levelled the scores at 17-17, but the Scots hit back with two tried in quick succession before running away with the game and rubbing salt into Australian wounds.
After also running New Zealand close last week Scottish fans now appear to have heightened expectations for the Six Nations.
I can handle the Scottish going well against us.. Good ppl & you know they will celebrate hard into the night 🍻 🍻 #SCOvAUS

Scotland beat Australia and Samoa and run New Zealand the closest they have for years. Tremendous November test series for @gregortownsend and his team. Bring on the Six Nations!!

In one match Scotland have scored seven tries - half the number they scored in five matches in this year's Six Nations #SCOvAUS

Best performance by Scotland for goodness knows how long. Record victory for Scotland against a tier one team.

Ali Price, Finn Russell, Huw Jones - even replacement props - and so many others reveling in the space created by Kepu's sending off. Furious tempo. Perfect for how Townsend wants Scotland to play.

Scotland have just been an absolute joy to watch this afternoon.
