Scotland celebrate historic win over Wallabies with sickening head clash

Scotland claimed a famous 9-6 upset win over the Wallabies in Australia earlier today as Greig Laidlaw kicked an extra time penalty to spark wild celebrations. Unfortunately Joe Ansbro and Ally Strokosch will remember the moment for other reasons.

Scotland won in appalling conditions, similar to those that greeted the Wallabies in their 2009 meeting at Murrayfield, when Matt Giteau missed a last minute kick and Scotland won 9-8.

On this occasion it was a late kick from the Scots as their power in the scrum earned them a penalty. Laidlaw's attempt sailed through and Scotland had their first victory over the Wallabies in Australia since their 1982 win in Brisbane.

The scenes were chaotic as the kick went over, with the Scots erupting in the middle of the park, engulfing laidlaw and diving onto one another. Ansbro and Strokosch joined the group with impeccable timing, flying in head first, splitting each other open in the process.

It didn't stop the smiles, despite each player needing to be patched up, with Ansbro coming off worst, needing multiple stiches to a nasty cut above his eye.

Strokosch commented on Twitter that he had 'Apparently split him to the bone', and said that he got 4 stitches while Ansbro 'got loads!'. He also posted a comical freezeframe of the collision.

"We are hard in Scotland - this is how we celebrate," he said.

Below is a clip that includes the amusing reactions from both Australian and UK commentatry teams
