Last-minute call-up Byron McGuigan scored a try double as Scotland ran up a record 53-24 win over 14-man Australia at Murrayfield.
The Sale wing was handed a late starting slot when Stuart Hogg pulled up with a hip injury in the warm-up.
But the loss of their key man only seemed to inspiree Gregor Townsend’s impressive Dark Blues down as they rounded off their autumn series with eight tries and their biggest ever points total against one of the southern hemisphere’s big three.
However, Hogg took exception when ex-Scotland and British & Irish Lion David Sole suggested “Who needs Stuart Hogg?”.
Thanks for the support, Dave. Maitland was a class act, as always. Thought you were better than that. Clearly not. Shame.

And although Sole tweeted saying it was a joke, Hogg clearly wasn’t happy about the comment.
It was a joke! I have nothing other than respect and admiration for your talent – sorry that you took my comment the wrong way.
