Scotland v New Zealand - Live

Last updated: 11th November 2012  

80 Scotland have one final opportunity in the All Blacks 22 but they can't control it out wide and the ball flies into touch. Referee Garces of France blows the whistle for full-time. Thanks for joining us!

Conversion78 CONVERSION, CARTER, 22-51! Carter adds two more. He has been superb this game. Simply too good. Scotland have surrendered 50 points.

TRY77 TRY, SMITH, 22-49! New Zealand on attack and Carter sucks in the defender as he takes the half gap and passes it wide where the space has now opened up. Smith collects and dives over. The ball seemed to go forward in that movement, but the referee missed it.

75 Allan Jacobsen, David Denton and Max Evans are now on for Scotland. Henry Pyrgos also comes on to replace scrum-half Mike Blair.

72 A lengthy period of possession for Scotland, but they lack the incisive power to break the line. New Zealand defend and defend until they earn the penalty when they are quickest to the breakdown and Scotland are pinged for holding on.

Conversion65 CONVERSION, CARTER, 22-44! Carter adds the extras and the All Blacks are well clear now.

TRY64 TRY, SAVEA, 22-42! Scotland surrender another of their line-outs and the quick thinking Carter sends a kick out wide to Savea who collects on the bounce and shakes off Hogg after timing his run perfectly.

62 New Zealand ring the changes, with Hore, Weepu and Owen Franks substituted. On come Ben Franks, Dane Coles and Tawera Kerr Barlow.

60 Scotland keep pressing, but they can't find the gap in the defence they require despite being just metres from the tryline. Eventually Strokosch is penalised for diving into the ruck and not staying on his feet. Carter clears.

58 New Zealand are penalised for stealing the ball unfairly. Scotland kick for touch and tset up the rolling maul from the ensuing line-out. New Zealand are up to the task, though, and repel it.

56 Unfortunate for Scotland, who are pressurising on the All Black line after collecting their own restart and driving up the field. They try the pick and go with their forwards, but run into one of their own men. New Zealand have the put in to the scrum right on their own tryline.

55 Thomson is back on the field, having served his 10 minutes in the sin bin.

Penalty54 PENALTY, CARTER, 22-37! Bad luck for Scotland. Somewhat against the run of play they are penalised at ruck time in a very kickable position for Carter, who makes no mistake.

TRY51 TRY, VISSER, 22-34! The Scots are on the attack again in the opposition 22, but McCaw steals it. The ABs send it wide, but get isolated and the Scots steal it back. Blair throws a quick pass to Visser, who has no one in front of him out wide. Try time! The conversion is wide and there's 12 points in it now.

47 The Scots are on the attack and are awarded a penalty in the New Zealand 22. They kick for touch but lose the ball in the line-out. Some illegal play from McCaw gives them another chance, but on the second go the throw fails to find a Scottish forward once again. Let off for New Zealand and poor play from Scotland.

Yellow Card44 YELLOW CARD, THOMSON! The touch judge's flag comes out. He spotted the All Blacks lock using his feet at the ruck illegally. Replays show it was right on the head of the opposing player. Perhaps lucky not to get red carded.

42 The All Blacks pick up where they left off and attack again. inside passes, outside passes, but a little bit lateral this time, which allows the Scots to cover in defence. Carter kicks to Hogg at the back who sends a booming kick down in the NZ 22. The kick is returned into touch and the Scots have the throw-in not too far from the halfway line.

Second-half Laidlaw gets us back underway. Scotland will be happy with scoring two tries, but not with conceding four. Can they improve?

Conversion46 CONVERSION, LAIDLAW, 17-34! Laidlaw converts and the Scots have a glimmer of hope that the second half might go better for them. Stay with us!

TRY45 TRY, CROSS, 15-34! Some joy for Scotland, who collect the ball from the restart and play New Zealand at their own game, driving up the field with some solid support play. They reach the tryline, but are held up over the line. They have the penalty though and attack again. Finally a gap opens up in the resolute All Black defence and the try is scored.

Conversion39 CONVERSION, CARTER, 10-34! Two more points added by Carter.

TRY38 TRY, HORE, 10-32! Scotland have no answer to New Zealand's support play and offload and passing game. The All Blacks collect the ball from a stolen line-out on halfway and simply barrel up the field with a series of insightful passes. Hore receives the ball right in front of the tryline and falls over.

Conversion35 CONVERSION, CARTER, 10-27! Carter adds the extras and they're pulling away now.

TRY34 TRY, JANE, 10-25! Almost an instant replay of the last try, except this time the ball went left instead of right. The All Blacks send the ball through the hands once again and the Scots run out of defenders as Jane dives over in the corner.

Conversion31 CONVERSION, CARTER, 10-20! The kick is way out wide, but Carter slots it and suddenly the All Blacks are 10 points ahead.

TRY30 TRY, SAVEA, 10-18! All too easy for the All Blacks, who are back in the opposition 22 after a few phases. They simply send the ball through the hands in the backline and out wide to the winger who has no one in front of him. Looking ominous.

Penalty29 PENALTY, CARTER, 10-13! The kick is a mere formality from just right of the posts and the All Blacks are back in front.

27 Dagg stayed on after taking that knock, but not for long. Beauden Barrett is now on the field in his place. The All Blacks are back on attack, their support play excellent as they drive up the field. Scotland are penalised in their own 22 when Matt Scott is adjudged to have not rolled away.

Penalty25 PENALTY, LAIDLAW, 10-10! the flyhalf makes no mistake and the Scots are back on level terms

24 The Scots have a line-out just inside the New Zealand half. Laidlaw sends it high and the Scottish back three compete well. Dagg appears to get injured as he fumbles the high ball. Scotland retain possession and the All Blacks are penalised at ruck time.

Conversion20 CONVERSION, CARTER, 10-7! Carter makes no mistake and the All Blacks have a three-point lead.

TRY19 TRY, DAGG, 7-8! Carter breaks the line from the line-out and after a few phases in the opposition 22, he breaks it again with seeming ease, offloading to the fullback who jogs over the line for New Zealand's first try right under the posts.

18 It's a scrappy scrum, but the Scots maintain control. Blair sends it out to Laidlaw who finds his touch just inside the Scot's half.

17 Scotland are penalised after the restart and Carter kicks for touch instead of opting for the penalty. New Zealand collect the ball from the ensuing lineout, but their maul is held up and Scotland will have the put-in to the scrum right on their own tryline.

Conversion14 CONVERSION, LAIDLAW, 7-3! The fly-half makes no mistake with the conversion and Scotland take the early lead.

TRY13 TRY, VISSER, 5-3! The ABs are putting together the phases and look dangerous, but Carter throws an intercept pass to Matt Scott who passes it to the winger on his shoulder who runs all the way for a valuable score

10 Scotland are penalised in the scrum and Carter lines up another penalty shot. It's wide, though, and the Scots can breathe again.

8 Piri Weepu collects the ball at the base of the scrum and sends it out. The ABs look dangerous, but a knock-on hands possession back to Scotland.

5 Andrew Hore's first throw at the line-out goes awry and Scotland have possession in their opponent's half. The All Blacks knock the ball on in defence and the Scots have the scrum. Their frontrow goes early and the ABs are awarded the free kick. Captain McCaw calls for another scrum, however.

Penalty2 CARTER, PENALTY, 0-3! Carter slots it through the posts and the All Blacks take the lead early.

PenaltyKick-off Daniel Carter gets us underway at Murrayfield. The Scots collect, set up the ruck and Mike Blair delivers the box kick. New Zealand collect and start running the ball immediately. The Scots are pinged for offside at the ruck and Carter has an opportunity to open the scores.

Team news New Zealand have a new centre partnership of Tamati Ellison and Ben Smith while Adam Thomson and Victor Vito join Richie McCaw in the back-row.

Team news Scotland will be led by new captain Kelly Brown and will hope that free-scoring winger Tim Visser shines on the wing. Elsewhere, Ryan Grant is preferred over Allan Jacobsen at loosehead while there is no starting place for David Denton.

Welcome Hello from Murrayfield for the final international of the weekend, which sees Scotland face off with world champions New Zealand. The All Blacks' record over the Scots is hugely impressive so an upset is unlikely - but they did recently beat Australia.
