Scotland stun Australia on U20 World Championship opening day

The World Rugby U20 Championship kicked off yesterday in Manchester and it has already produced one of the shocks of the year so far. Scotland came from behind to pull off a superb victory over 14-man Australia, winning 15-10.

Aussie centre Campbell Magnay was sent off for a second yellow card early in the second half for a high tackle/neck roll. It gave the Scots the motivation they needed and scored two tries, through prop Zander Fagerson and winger Darcy Graham.

Graham’s try was sensational. The Hawick winger showed plenty of gas and more to skip through the Australian defence to touch down in the corner. Adam Hastings brilliantly slotted the touchline conversion, much to the delight of onlooking ex-Scotland and Lions father, Gavin.

Australia battered the Scots hard in the closing stages but could not get the much-needed try. Their final effort saw them get over the line, but the TMO ruled in Scotland’s favour, thus securing a famous win.

Fagerson said post-match: “We felt like we did well in the scrums, obviously sometimes we got it wrong but the boys done good and that last scrum won us the game and when it counted we got stuck in and got it done.”

Congratulations to Scotland, but what are your thoughts on the two yellow cards?
