Test match: Scotland smash Tonga

For their first autumn Test match, Scotland shined (60–14) against Tonga at Murrayfield. XV du Chardon took ten attempts for a total of 60 points.

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 the Scots only seven minutes 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).
