Scotland 36-9 Georgia, Murrayfield Stadium
Scorecard

Scotland scored a six-try riot as they trounced Georgia 36-9 in their clash at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Friday.

The Dark Blues were the first to score the points in the game in the 17th minute when Darcy Graham and Sam Johnson sent Ali Price over the line.

Tedo Abzhandadze kicked three penalties in the opening 30 minutes that remained the only points in the game for the visitors but Scotland had the lead when a deft kick from Adam Hastings sent Blair Kinghorn over the line in the 23rd minute as the teams had a 10-9 scoreline.

Both the teams had a setback as Scotland's Zander Fagerson and Georgia's Mikheil Nariashvili were sin-binned in the 33rd minute even though the next 10 minutes went without a point with both the teams striving hard for a breakthrough.

Georgia continued to attack but Scotland's defence were good enough to keep them down and in the 50th minute Sam Johnson put Scotland to 17-9 lead that also saw the visitors' second sin-bin in the game with this time Zurab Dzneladze yellow-carded.

With no further resistance from Georgia, Scotland dominated the final 11 minutes with tries from Graham (69'), George Horne (71') and Pete Horne (77') to ensure a 36-9 win.
