    FULL-TIME: SCOTLAND 17-22 NEW ZEALAND. New Zealand have held on for a narrow victory. The teams went into half-time level at 3-3, but New Zealand pulled away at the start of the second half. They then lost Cane and Crockett to the sin-bin and nearly allowed Scotland back into the game. Despite a superb display from the hosts, particularly Hogg, the All Blacks claimed victory.

  • 78'

    CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, RUSSELL! 17-22: With just two minutes to go, the sides are separated by a mere five points now.

  • 73'

    New Zealand win a penalty from the five-metre scrum with some superb work under pressure.

  • 67'

    TRY, NEW ZEALAND, B. BARRETT! 10-20: Williams breaks a tackle and offloads to McKenzie, who passes to Barrett for the finish! Crucial try!

  • 65'

    Perenara is on the field in place of Smith. New Zealand have plenty of riches in the scrum-half department.

  • 63'

    CONVERSION, SCOTLAND, RUSSELL! 10-15: Finn Russell adds the extra two with a good kick.

  • 62'

    TRY, SCOTLAND, GRAY! 8-15: Gray powers over and Scotland are within touching distance of the All Blacks again.

  • 61'

    Scotland are still on the attack, just short of the line.

  • 61'

    YELLOW CARD, NEW ZEALAND, CANE! Cane is sent to the sin-bin with Scotland still on the attack.

  • 60'

    New Zealand are penalised for collapsing the maul and Scotland set up an attacking lineout.

  • 58'

    Scotland have not given up on this game yet. Russell intercepts a pass from Taylor and puts a kick through, but he is unable to run onto it in time.

  • 55'

    New Zealand look a different side in the second half. Hogg runs at the All Blacks, but Ioane tackles him into touch.

  • 52'

    CONVERSION, NEW ZEALAND, B. BARRETT! 3-15: Barrett makes no mistake this time from an easy kick.

  • 51'

    TRY, NEW ZEALAND, MCKENZIE! 3-13: Williams sets McKenzie up for a simple finish with a lovely chip through! That's clearly a move they have practiced.

  • 50'

    Hamilton is receiving medical attention on the field. Scotland are burning through their replacements and will hope he doesn't have to go off.

  • 50'

    Hamilton is stretchered off and replaced by Turner.

  • 47'

    Barrett can't get the right direction on his conversion attempt. It's 3-8 in favour of the All Blacks.

  • 45'

    TRY, NEW ZEALAND, TAYLOR! 3-8: New Zealand work the ball out wide and this time, Taylor is able to finish off on the left after receiving the long pass from Sonny Bill Williams!

  • 44'

    HALF-TIME: SCOTLAND 3-3 NEW ZEALAND. The teams go into the break all square. Scotland have taken the game to New Zealand and they drew first blood with a Russell penalty. The All Blacks levelled the scores shortly before half-time through Beauden Barrett, but Steve Hansen will expect more from them in the second half.

  • 44'

    Ioane bursts through the Scottish defence and gives the ball to Taylor. He can't go all the way, but the momentum has shifted all of a sudden.

  • 43'

    New Zealand win a penalty and set up a lineout. They secure the ball right on the Scotland 22 and they now have one last chance in this half.

  • 43'

    Scotland go on the attack early on, but New Zealand are awarded a penalty right in front of their own try-line.

  • 42'

    Russell goes for a drop goal, but it's a poor attempt and McKenzie catches the ball.

  • 41'

    Russell kicks off the second half for Scotland. Nobody gets hold of his kick and it goes into touch.

  • 39'

    PENALTY, NEW ZEALAND, B. BARRETT! 3-3: At last, the All Blacks are on the board. It was Barclay who gave away the penalty for trying to take the ball from the breakdown while off his feet.

  • 38'

    The visitors have won a penalty and Barrett can level the scores.

  • 36'

    New Zealand lose the ball and Scotland survive. The initial scrum was conceded because the ball came off Seymour's leg and he touched it down beyond the try-line nevertheless.

  • 35'

    New Zealand win a penalty from an attacking scrum on the five-metre line and it looks as if they are about to go for another one. This is the most dangerous spell that Scotland have had to deal with.

  • 32'

    Fagerson gives away a penalty and the All Blacks clear.

  • 31'

    Scotland are on the attack again. They work the ball out left to Hogg after several phases and he takes them deep inside the 22. However, the ball is eventually knocked on.

  • 28'

    We're going upstairs to review a tackle from Naholo on Hogg. This could be trouble for New Zealand.

  • 28'

    The replays show Naholo tackled Hogg in the air, but after some deliberation, Carley decides not to give a yellow card.

  • 27'

    Watson makes way as Hamilton comes on for his first Scotland cap.

  • 27'

    New Zealand pile on the pressure right in front of the line. A pick-and-go comes up just short. Then, a forward pass from Beauden Barrett halts their progress.

  • 25'

    The All Blacks are looking threatening again all of a sudden. Their attack is halted by a forward pass, but they had the advantage and so they take the penalty and set up a lineout in the corner.

  • 23'

    Price spots space in behind and finds touch inside the All Blacks 22 with a wonderful kick.

  • 21'

    Jones slips up at the vital moment and fails to control the ball. New Zealand get a penalty for offside and clear the danger.

  • 20'

    Scotland are now just five metres short of the line, looking for a chance to finish off this move.

  • 19'

    The hosts secure possession from the lineout and look to move forward from a maul. Laulala then gives away a penalty for coming in from the side.

  • 18'

    Scotland win a penalty and boot the ball upfield for an attacking lineout.

  • 16'

    New Zealand have not had much to shout about so far, but they have the ball near the Scottish 22 now.

  • 16'

    The ball is turned over, but then knocked on. The pressure is still on Scotland. New Zealand have the put-in to the scrum.

  • 13'

    Scotland have won another penalty and Russell is going for poles again.

  • 13'

    This time, Russell's kick goes just wide of the post. It's still 3-0.

  • 11'

    Read gathers from the lineout and Smith clears again.

  • 10'

    Hogg kicks the ball into the corner and New Zealand have a defensive lineout on the five-metre line.

  • 9'

    Russell flies forward and almost intercepts a pass from Smith, but he fails to hold onto the ball.

  • 7'

    PENALTY, SCOTLAND, RUSSELL! 3-0: Russell slots the ball over the crossbar and Scotland lead!

  • 6'

    Scotland look promising early on, with Hogg at the heart of all their attacking moves.

  • 6'

    Scotland win a penalty as Naholo is blown up for going off his feet. This is a chance to put some points on the board.

  • 4'

    New Zealand win their scrum inside their 22 and Smith finds touch near halfway.

  • 2'

    Scotland win an early penalty for obstruction and set up an attacking lineout. They win it and inch forward from the maul, but then the All Blacks get a scrum.

  • 1'

    Carley blows his whistle and the All Blacks get the game underway.

  • 0'

    We're busy going through the national anthems. New Zealand naturally start as heavy favourites, but Scotland are capable of springing an upset. After all, in June, they beat Australia 24-19 in Sydney.
