Full-time at BT Murrayfield; New Zealand with the spoils

After a couple of minutes this afternoon, it looked like a long, drawn-out game was in the offing, New Zealand’s early double from Samisoni Taukeiaho and Mark Telea earning a 14-0 lead in no time.

Scotland defied the All Blacks’ start, though, with a penalty try awarded just moments before Darcy Graham thrilled the crowd with his brilliant, fleet-footed score – a 13th for Scotland.

Finn Russell kicked 5/5 from the tee including three penalties, but New Zealand timed their bounce back perfectly, with late Telea and Scott Barrett tries sealing a 31-23 victory.

Scotland’s final Autumn Nations Series game of 2022 comes next Saturday 19 November, with Argentina the visitors to BT Murrayfield, kick-off 3:15pm.

73'

Scotland not rolling away

Frank Murphy whistles Scotland for not rolling away after a sustained defensive effort, and the game stops for some treatments to be administered. We restart with a New Zealand line-out inside Scotland’s half. 5 or so to go.

76'

Try New Zealand

Just as they often do, against every team they face at one stage or another, New Zealand look to have nicked this. Mark Telea grabs a debut double with a finish in the corner – debated by the remonstrative BT Murrayfield crowd – with Jordie Barrett landing a howitzer of a conversion. 31-23 to the All Blacks with less than three minutes to go.

71'

Ashman for Brown at hooker

Fraser Brown has been thoroughly excellent this afternoon, and his well-deserved rest comes when Ewan Ashman replaces him for the final ten. Both sides must believe they can walk away from this see-saw affair victorious..

66'

Try New Zealand, visitors lead again

It’s taken a while but the All Blacks have clawed their way back into this, and Scott Barrett barges his way over the line to confirm the in-game renaissance. Brother Jordie converts and, a man up for eight minutes yet, New Zealand are ahead by one at 24-23.

66'

Subs for Scots

Ben White, for Ali Price; Mark Bennett for Chris Harris; and Jonny Gray comes on for Grant Gilchrist.

65'

Play stops for penalty and injury

The refereeing team want a look at a Jack Dempsey deliberate knock-on, or the possibility of it having happened. And it has. Dempsey takes ten minutes, and Pierre Schoeman also returns to the fray with Rory Sutherland stretchered off. Crucial, crucial minutes ahead. All Blacks opt to scrum in the chaos.

58'

WP Nel on for 50th

WP Nel, a stalwart of Scottish rugby since his 2015 debut against Italy, is on for his 50th cap, to the acclaim of the BT Murrayfield crowd.

62'

New Zealand get their first points of the half

Jordie Barrett, such a cool customer, lands a lovely kick from 30m out after Rory Sutherland is adjudged to have helped a scrum collapse. 23-17 to Scotland with less than a quarter of the game left at BT Murrayfield..

53'

Lead up to nine

Scrum penalty again for a rampant Scotland, who force the error through belligerent dominance at the set piece. Finn Russell lands a third penalty goal, his fifth successful kick out of five this afternoon by the way, and Scotland are leafing 23-14.

57'

Kiwis cough up another penalty

Sam Whitelock is found out after he collapses a maul, and Scotland once more haul themselves up into New Zealand territory. The visitors make a raft of changes, and for Scotland Rory Sutherland takes to the action for Pierre Schoeman.

52'

Chests out, big moments for Scotland

BT Murrayfield is crackling right now, and no wonder. The locals are witnessing the sort of performance that they’ve been craving, and rarely seen against New Zealand. The All Blacks can’t deal with the home team’s aggressive defence and knock on, on their own 22, with a Scotland attacking scrum to come. Well placed. Very well placed.

49'

Hogg cannot go closer

It’s like a game within a game here, to see who can get closest to the try line without actually dotting down. This time it’s Stuart Hogg, who’s had an excellent game, who wriggles his way to within centimetres of the line, only to be brought down short. New Zealand then add insult with a penalty for forcing a non-release of the ball. Back to. halfway we go, Scotland very much on top here.

42'

Scotland extend lead to 6

Anton Lienert-Brown, he of the transgression when Stuart Hogg would have scored in the first half, is offside. Finn Russell slots his second penalty goal from 30 metres; 20-14 for a perfect start to the second period.

44'

Darcy taken out high; Scotland look to take advantage

Darcy Graham has been everywhere from the outset today and when Ardie Savea, the All Blacks no 8, hits him with a high tackle, Scotland are swiftly on the  front foot. New Zealand are renowned for a reason though, and they comfortably see off the threat, winning their own penalty when Matt Fagerson puts his own high tackle in on Savea. Its gripping stuff, this.

41'

Second half upon us

Settle down for the next 40 minutes of action – it promises to be action-fuelled. Scotland lead New Zealand 17-14 in this Autumn Nations Series encounter. They’re a half away from a first ever win over the mighty All Blacks. Finn Russell pitches one deep and the catching Kiwi is accordingly hit. Solid start.

40'

Inches again for Scotland

Ach, so so close again. Frank Murphy rules that after multiple phases camped on the New Zealand line, Scotland actually don’t release and with the referee’s whistle, we’ve reached the break.

15:00

Scotland lead New Zealand at half-time

Not a typo, not a drill. Scotland, having gone 14-0 down in the blink of a first-half eye, rallied in indomitable style to draw level and then take the lead in a madcap first half at BT Murrayfield.

After Scott Barrett and Mark Telea scored converted tries for the Kiwis, the hosts replied with a penalty try after Stuart Hogg was cynically pushed off the ball when primed to score, before Darcy Graham slalomed over shortly after. Finn Russell converted both and added a penalty meaning Scotland, in search of a first ever win in this fixture, are ahead after the opening 40.

37'

Scrum penalty Scotland!

Grit and ability in abundance as Scotland are able to further march from their own line, winning a scrum penalty for the All Blacks bringing down the set piece. We’ll then come back for a penalty advantage that followed for Scott Barrett taking out a player in the air. The last act of the half might well be a Scottish line-out just about on the All Blacks’ 22..

27'

Frenetic game settles down

Somehow we’re over 25 minutes into this one, with few chances for restorative breath. Relief does come when New Zealand don’t release in the tackle and Finn Russell finds a good touch. Scotland look dangerous and reap another penalty for a on-rolling-away All Black. Russell gets an even better nudge and Scotland are back in the opposition 22..

36'

Scotland superb in defence

New Zealand in a position New Zealand normally take points from. Multiple rucks platforms but there’s no way of puncturing the home guard, and then Finlay Christie knocks on to offer respite to the hosts. Four minutes left until the half-time break and Scotland are leading 17-14.

31'

Scotland in the lead against the All Blacks

Finn Russell slots the simplest of goals, infant of the posts, after play was brought back for an offside. Scotland 17-14 up in this humdinger of a game.

29'

Graham within centimetres!

Scotland are properly purring now, Russell’s delicious flat pass allowing Stuart Hogg to thunder towards the line. Hogg comes up short and pops to Darcy Graham but he has a big toe in touch. Play is brought back for an offside and Scotland opt once more for an attacking line-out..

15'

TRY Scotland!

It’s bedlam at BT Murrayfield! New Zealand on the attack around halfway, and Darcy Graham intercepts. He’s got so much to do but waltzes his way past defenders as if he were competing in a well-known national dancing show. It’s a 13th international try for the Edinburgh Rugby wing, and one of the most composed finishes you’ll see. Finn Russell converts to make it 14-14. It’s incredible stuff.

20'

Scotland go close to a third

From that resulting line-out, Scotland go in search of another try, tails up and feeding off the BT Murrayfield faithful. They’re stopped short when referee Murphy says Jamie Ritchie has rolled too many times in the tackle and New Zealand escape. Not a line you hear very often.

14:45

13 on the 13th for Darcy

A 13th international try for Darcy Graham, coming on 13 November. And it was an absolute belter!

18'

Hogg thriving

Not a try, but equally electric. Stuart Hogg grubbers a ball through and hares after it, his follow-up tackle on Jordie Barrett halting any chance of New Zealand clearing, with Hamish Watson’s helping cover tackle. Watson is injured in his heroic act and is replaced by Jack Dempsey.

10'

Whitelock high tackle leads to Hogg break

Referee Frank Murphy wants a look upstairs as Stuart Hogg’s scorching chip and run is halted at the last by All Blacks’ Anton Lienert-Brown looks like he’s pushed the Scotland full-back off a cast-iron 27th international try..

11'

TRY Scotland!!

It is indeed a penalty try! Anton Liernart-Brown is also given a yellow card for his misdemeanours, so Scotland, having suffered a the start, are within 7 points and a man up for the next 10 minutes..

6'

Try New Zealand

It’s just clinical from the All Blacks, it really is. From that attack, Beauden Barrett dinks the easiest cross field kick into the path of debutant winger Mark Telea, who crosses for the simplest of first internationals tries. Jordie Barrett converts, it’s 14-0 to the visitors and they already look extremely comfortable.

1'

Kick-off in Edinburgh

The third match of Scotland’s Autumn Nations Series, and of 2022 as a calendar year, is live – Beauden Barrett lobs the ball into an uncharacteristically bright blue Edinburgh sky as 67,144 settle in for an afternoon of top level international sport.

5'

Crowd lifting Scots

Scotland are on the attack for the first time this afternoon and the crowd oblige with a lifting of the audio inside BT Murrayfield. Penalised for not releasing though, and the All Blacks are into Scottish territory in the blink of an eye.
