Ten attempts and 60 points, Scotland denuclearizes Tonga

Ten attempts and 60 points, Scotland denuclearizes Tonga
To start their autumn tour, Scotland found a selection of Tonga within its reach. To kick off their Six Nations tournament for the first time since their victory in France last March. And the least we can say is that the huge audience at Murrayfield got their money’s worth. Under the Edinburgh sun, they saw a major victory (60–14) of XV du Chardon, a tough first period. On a test signed by Rufus McLean, it took only seven minutes for the Scots to open the scoring. For his first international cap, the left winger signed a brace in the 15th minute thanks to a devastating hook on Feva, which opened the way to the in-goal. The wingers have certainly done a lot of damage to the overwhelmed Tongan team from all sides. On his right side, Kyle Steyn outperformed his Glasgow Warriors teammate with a spectacular hat-trick in the space of 17 minutes (22nd, 33rd, 39th).

The damage was already done at half-time (36-9). In the second act, Gregor Townsend’s men rested, but crossed the goal line four times through his forward George Turner (50th), on a penetrating maul on Nick Henning (71st) and Ollie Cable (76th). . Tonga still managed to record a single attempt per hour by Provence rugby columnist David Lolohia. Not enough to spoil the party for Scotland and Kyle Steyn who offered to quadruple himself under the poles seconds before the final whistle on the day of his second selection. With a bar of ten tries and 60 points for the first time since crossing the road to Russia (61-0) in the last World Cup, Scotland are confident before taking on Australia (7 November), South Africa. 13 November) and Japan (November 20).
