London - Scotland made it two wins out of two with a comfortable enough victory over Romania at Murrayfield.
Frank Hadden's men rarely looked troubled but were a little scrappy and will need to improve their execution, especially at the breakdown, for the tougher tests that lie ahead.
See what you think of my player ratings and let us know what you thought of the Scotland display.
Rory Lamont - The pick of the Scotland backs, the Sale full-back continued his fine start to the World Cup with two more tries. A constant threat. 8
Sean Lamont - Two spills early on but the Northampton man settled down to get into the game and made a few nice breaks. 7
Simon Webster - Moved into the midfield in place of Marcus Di Rollo and looked completely at home. An energetic and lively presence at outside centre and drew his man nicely to play in Hogg for his third try. 7
Rob Dewey - Quieter than his centre partner but a powerful charge in the first half led to Rory Lamont’s opener. Replaced by Hugo Southwell on 58 minutes. 5
Chris Paterson - Got Scotland on their way after chasing down his own perfectly-judged chip to score with just 70 seconds gone. Delivered another faultless kicking performance. 7
Dan Parks - The Glasgow stand-off produced an assured display and has done enough to remain Scotland’s first choice fly-half. Kicked well from hand and passing was direct and accurate. Came off on 68 minutes with his work done. 7
Mike Blair - Mixed bag for the Edinburgh number nine. Will have sleepless nights after spurning an overlap to try and go for the line himself but made amends by playing in Hogg in for his second try and also produced a lovely one-handed pick up from the floor. Replaced by Chris Cusiter on 58 minutes. 6
Gavin Kerr - Did not have the easiest of nights and had all sorts of bother trying to contain the Romanian scrum. Substituted 11 minutes into the second half. 5
Ross Ford - Found his jumpers consistently at line-out time but struggled to impose himself around the park. Replaced by Scott Lawson with 21 minutes to go. 6
Euan Murray - Failed to dominate his opposite number and was fairly anonymous elsewhere. Came off in the second half with an arm injury. 5
Nathan Hines - Some nice carries with ball in hand and worked tirelessly in defence but was not an imposing menace at the breakdown. Replaced on 52 minutes. 6
Jim Hamilton - Was Scotland’s go-to man in the line-out and was a complete nuisance on Romanian ball. One of the players that struggled to retain possession in contact. 6
Jason White - Tough as teak and was again an immense presence for his side. Tackled all night long and did plenty of the gritty stuff on the floor. 7
Allister Hogg - A superb performance from the Edinburgh open-side. He consistently got himself into the right positions and deservedly received the man-of-the-match award for his hat-trick of tries. 9
Simon Taylor - Not the most explosive of days but he showed his undoubted class with a charge down and fine offload for Hogg’s second try. 7
Scott Lawson - Came on for Ross Ford and made the most of his 21 minutes of action. He dived on the ball to end a period of Romanian pressure, joined the counter attack and produced a nice outside break and offload to release Rory Lamont for his second try. 7
Craig Smith - Came on for Kerr and made his presence felt. 6
Scott MacLeod - Replaced Hines and got involved from the off with a big hit. 6
Kelly Brown - Was brought on for Hogg with the game already won and did not see much of the ball. 5
Chris Cusiter - Staked his claim for the scrum-half jersey with a lively 22 minutes. Always harrying, he found a gap in the Romanian defence late on but a forward pass to Paterson ended the attack. 6
Hugo Southwell - Replaced Dewey and looked for work. Produced a nice clearing kick. 6
Nikki Walker - Took to the field with just 12 minutes left and had little chance to shine. 5
