  • Scotland have one final opportunity in the All Blacks 22 but they can't control it out wide and the ball flies into touch. Referee Garces of France blows the whistle for full-time. Thanks for joining us!

  • CONVERSION, CARTER, 22-51! Carter adds two more. He has been superb this game. Simply too good. Scotland have surrendered 50 points.

  • TRY, SMITH, 22-49! New Zealand on attack and Carter sucks in the defender as he takes the half gap and passes it wide where the space has now opened up. Smith collects and dives over. The ball seemed to go forward in that movement, but the referee missed it.

  • Allan Jacobsen, David Denton and Max Evans are now on for Scotland. Henry Pyrgos also comes on to replace scrum-half Mike Blair.

  • A lengthy period of possession for Scotland, but they lack the incisive power to break the line. New Zealand defend and defend until they earn the penalty when they are quickest to the breakdown and Scotland are pinged for holding on.

  • CONVERSION, CARTER, 22-44! Carter adds the extras and the All Blacks are well clear now.

  • TRY, SAVEA, 22-42! Scotland surrender another of their line-outs and the quick thinking Carter sends a kick out wide to Savea who collects on the bounce and shakes off Hogg after timing his run perfectly.

  • New Zealand ring the changes, with Hore, Weepu and Owen Franks substituted. On come Ben Franks, Dane Coles and Tawera Kerr Barlow.

  • Scotland keep pressing, but they can't find the gap in the defence they require despite being just metres from the tryline. Eventually Strokosch is penalised for diving into the ruck and not staying on his feet. Carter clears.

  • New Zealand are penalised for stealing the ball unfairly. Scotland kick for touch and tset up the rolling maul from the ensuing line-out. New Zealand are up to the task, though, and repel it.

  • Unfortunate for Scotland, who are pressurising on the All Black line after collecting their own restart and driving up the field. They try the pick and go with their forwards, but run into one of their own men. New Zealand have the put in to the scrum right on their own tryline.

  • Thomson is back on the field, having served his 10 minutes in the sin bin.

  • PENALTY, CARTER, 22-37! Bad luck for Scotland. Somewhat against the run of play they are penalised at ruck time in a very kickable position for Carter, who makes no mistake.

  • TRY, VISSER, 22-34! The Scots are on the attack again in the opposition 22, but McCaw steals it. The ABs send it wide, but get isolated and the Scots steal it back. Blair throws a quick pass to Visser, who has no one in front of him out wide. Try time! The conversion is wide and there's 12 points in it now.

  • The Scots are on the attack and are awarded a penalty in the New Zealand 22. They kick for touch but lose the ball in the line-out. Some illegal play from McCaw gives them another chance, but on the second go the throw fails to find a Scottish forward once again. Let off for New Zealand and poor play from Scotland.

  • YELLOW CARD, THOMSON! The touch judge's flag comes out. He spotted the All Blacks lock using his feet at the ruck illegally. Replays show it was right on the head of the opposing player. Perhaps lucky not to get red carded.

  • The All Blacks pick up where they left off and attack again. inside passes, outside passes, but a little bit lateral this time, which allows the Scots to cover in defence. Carter kicks to Hogg at the back who sends a booming kick down in the NZ 22. The kick is returned into touch and the Scots have the throw-in not too far from the halfway line.

  • Laidlaw gets us back underway. Scotland will be happy with scoring two tries, but not with conceding four. Can they improve?

  • CONVERSION, LAIDLAW, 17-34! Laidlaw converts and the Scots have a glimmer of hope that the second half might go better for them. Stay with us!

  • TRY, CROSS, 15-34! Some joy for Scotland, who collect the ball from the restart and play New Zealand at their own game, driving up the field with some solid support play. They reach the tryline, but are held up over the line. They have the penalty though and attack again. Finally a gap opens up in the resolute All Black defence and the try is scored.
