Winger Chris Kinloch opened Scotland’s account on the 10-minute mark with a well-worked try and he was joined on the score-sheet by Gary Strain, Stevie McColl, Paul Loudon and Adrian Duncan. Kinloch then scored his second try in stoppage time to cap off a morale-enhancing win over the USA – much to the delight of team manager John Jeffrey. Jeffrey said: We are absolutely delighted to get the win. We are now going to regroup and take on the next challenge. It was a confidence boost for the boys. We’ve not had the best of luck this season, either in the 6 Nations or the World Cup, so it was great to get those six tries. It was an excellent team performance and everyone stuck to the game-plan. It was a disciplined performance that was topped off with six tries.
