Scotland stun Australia at U20 World Rugby Championsh­ip


- Picture: PA.

Scotland fought back from a half-time deficit to secure a first victory over Australia at the U20 World Rugby Championsh­ip at Manchester yesterday.

The Scots trailed 7-3 at half-time but made the most of playing virtually the whole of the second half with a man advantage after Campbell Magnay’s red card for a dangerous tackle.

Prop Zander Fagerson, a product of Strathalla­n School and Dundee High School, burrowed over to give Scotland the lead and winger Darcy Graham’s try proved the match-winner, the winger, pictured celebratin­g, slicing through the Australian defence to race in from halfway.

Scotland’s next game is on Saturday evening against hosts England, who opened with a 48-10 win over Italy.
