But just when it seemed as if Scotland would not be breached, Carbery busted through two Scotland forwards to take play deep into opposition territory.

However they were gifted a try seconds later when Stockdale chipped ahead, Tommy Seymour who, under pressure from Chris Farrell, shipped a awful pass to Sean Maitland and Conor Murray pounced to run in the score.
