Scotland won their opening match of the 2007 World Cup by defeating tournament debutants Portugal 56-10.
The Iberian minnows, only two of whom are professionals, will claim a moral victory after making the Scots work for every score.
Let us know what you make of the ratings, and your views in general of the Scottish performance.
Rory Lamont The full-back was the star of the show for the Scots in the opening 40 minutes. He took his two tries superbly, was a constant threat with the ball in hand and was solid under the high ball - 8
Sean Lamont For once he was outshone by his brother. Scotland struggled to give him much decent ball and he will have more influential games - 6
Marcus di Rollo The outside centre was once brushed off by a Portuguese attacker. His distribution was poor and he failed to impose himself in either attack or defence against limited opposition - 4
Rob Dewey The 17-stone centre made some powerful bursts with the ball in hand and he took his try well, brushing off some ineffective tackling - 6
Simon Webster He had little chance to shine in the first half but got more involved after the break and a couple of good runs created tries - 6
Dan Parks Did his chances of keeping the fly-half role n harm with a controlled display. The fly-half kicked well and he directed play with aplomb - 7
Mike Blair Fumbled away possession a couple of times and although he was otherwise tidy he did not make the most of an easy ride - 5
Simon Taylor He could not stop the half-break which led to Portugal’s try and was fairly anonymous throughout - 6
Ally Hogg Scotland’s back row normally sets the tempo for the side but Hogg was as quiet as his partners – all three will have more influential games - 6
Jason White He won some good line-out ball but he is clearly not yet back to the form which made him one of the most destructive defensive forces in the world game - 6
Scott Murray He had a one fine run in the wide open spaces and the veteran lock was dominant in the line-outs – 7
Nathan Hines He won plenty of line-out ball but never really imposed himself around the park as much as he could have done - 6
Euan Murray Solid but no more than that in the scrums and invisible in the loose - 5
Scot Lawson The hooker took try his try well and produced some good handling in the loose, while he hit his jumpers consistently at the line-out - 7
Alan Jacobsen Did nothing wrong before coming off with a leg injury after 35 minutes – 6
Gavin Kerr Failed to make much of an impression after replacing Jacobsen after 35 mins - 6
Chris Paterson - Kicked well when he came on and had an easy ride as Portugal tired - 6
Hugo Southwell – Did his best to get involved out wide but never managed to break free, bar his late try - 6
Kelly Brown Took his try well but too little time to really shine - 6
Rory Lawson Did nothing wrong after coming on as a late replacement - 6
Ross Ford Another late replacement who will be happy enough to have scored a World Cup try, albeit from a yard and a half - 6
