Scotland beat the Flying Fijians 28-12 this morning with Fiji getting 3 yellow cards.

Just 80 seconds into his debut Ratu Rotuisolia was sent to the sin-bin and Scotland made the extra man count, with Turner going over from a rolling maul in the seventh minute.

Setareki Tuicuvu missed a penalty, then three minutes later made up for it with a try at the end of a lovely flowing attack.

Rotuisolia returned from the sin-bin and redeemed himself to give Fiji the lead with a 23rd-minute try, converted by Botitu.

Scotland first five Hastings bounced off a tackle to touch down behind the posts, a try he converted from close range.

Scotland led 14-12 at half-time

Fiji wing Habosi was very fortunate not to be shown a red card by referee Nic Berry for a high tackle to Rory Sutherland.

Fiji picked up a third yellow card as Livai Natave was penalised after referee Berry had placed Fiji on a team warning for persistent penalties at the scrum.

Off the next set-piece attack, White dashed in and the result wrapped up.
