Match Report: Scotland 43-16 Georgia – Scots score six tries to end Autumn on a high

  • Scotland ran in six tries to conclude their trio of autumn internationals with a 43-16 victory over Georgia
  • Tommy Seymour, a penalty try, Sean Maitland and Stuart Hogg put the hosts in control before the break
  • Hamish Watson and a second for Hogg sealed the win for Scotland
Scotland finished their autumn campaign in some style with a six-try spectacular at Rugby Park over a spirited but outpaced Georgia.

It is great result for Scotland who finish off their November Series with two wins from three games, and their only loss came at the hands of Australia who could only beat Scotland by one point.

Georgia will be disappointed with the loss after scoring the first try and looking very competitive at the start of the game. They finish their November series with two losses and a win against Samoa.

After conceding a careless opening try, the Scots roared as tries from Tommy Seymour, Sean Maitland, Stuart Hogg and a penalty try put them in control.

Hamish Watson scored a fifth just after half-time and although Georgia fought back with their trademark forward strength and power in the second half and got a second try of their own, Hogg’s second score in the dying minutes completed the home side’s handsome win.
