Scotland’s replacement hooker Ewan Ashman scored a try on his debut as they won the forward contest to defeat Australia 15-13 in a feisty autumn international clash at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Loose-forward Hamish Watson also crossed for a try, and flyhalf Finn Russell slotted one penalty and a conversion as the Scots kept up their winning run against Australia with a third successive victory.

Australia, who were beaten at the breakdown and in the scrum, managed a single try through loose-forward Rob Leota as prop Allan Alaalatoa also received a contested yellow card.

Russell landed the winning penalty after 69 minutes as the visitors were penalised at the scrum yet again, much to the delight of the home fans in the 65,700 crowd.

FULL TIME: Scotland 15-13 Australia

It wasn’t pretty - but Scotland won’t care as Murrayfield celebrates a big win over the Wallabies!

That was a grind for Scotland but the match-winning moment was a touch of class from the hooker Ewan Ashman.

Hamish Watson is awarded man of the match and his effort rather sums up Scotland’s overall display this afternoon.

79 mins: Penalty Scotland! With the ball on the halfway line, they draw the penalty as an Australian player comes into the side.

Russell kicks for touch and Australia will only have seconds remaining to advance the ball back into the Scotland half.

76 mins: Scotland get the turnover and break into space through Russell, who passes it onto Van der Merwe and then Hogg. They’ve advanced the ball into the Australia half, but that was a crucial strip from Jamie Bhatti earlier in the move.

75 mins: Australia turn the tide after their size advantage finally comes into play following some changes to their forward pack. They win the penalty and kick to touch in order to gain 25 yards or so of territory.

74 mins: It’s a Scottish scrum, rather, on the half-way line. These are tense moments and Poite is keen to ensure the scrum is properly set.

72 mins: Very cool from Russell, as he traps a deflected kick forward with the bottom of his boot, before off-loading to Van der Merwe as the pressure came.

Another couple of kicks follow, before the returning Kurtley Beale is swallowed up by a pack of Scottish defenders and the home side win a key penalty.

71 mins: Australia looked to threaten as they built up the phases, but their move breaks down as Scotland make a key interception. Russell kicks behind the Australia back-line, where Hooper collects. Australia then clear to halfway.
