Rugby; Another magnificent defeat!

  1. Australia see off brave Scotland

    Scotland turned in a brave and passionate performance against Australia but were eventually condemned to a 35-15 defeat in Melbourne as the Wallabies, led by two tries from Lote Tuqiri, pulled clear in the second half.

    Four penalties from Dan Parks in reply to Matt Giteau's try and eight points from Joe Roff had ensured Scotland were deservedly in touch at the interval.

    But the Wallabies cranked up the pressure after half-time, Tuqiri struck twice and Wendell Sailor rounded off the scoring with a soft try in the closing minutes.

    Those three tries in the second half were lucky! The only consolation in all this is that the All Blacks stuffed England too! :chuckle
