EDINBURGH: Scotland completed their Rugby World Cup campaign with a second successive victory over Georgia on Friday but found things tougher going this week before a late surge secured a somewhat flattering 36-9 victory at Murrayfield.

As with their previous three warm-ups, the Scots played well in parts but struggled to sustain it and coach Gregor Townsend may still have quite a few World Cup selections yet to be settled in his mind. "They showed a more varied game today. It was pleasing that we did put things right later on in the game and finishing with a couple of tries made it a nicer win than it probably was."Less satisfying were a number of injuries - with Jonny Gray, Ben Toolis, Kinghorn, Jamie Ritchie and Blade Thomson all suffering.
