  1. Thumbs up for Scots

    FT: Georgia 10-44 Scotland

    It's a thumbs up for Rory Hutchinson after his two tries, with Scotland getting five overall. It's a morale-boosting win on the road, their first for over a year, but the squad know they'll have to step up again in Japan.

    Join us on Tuesday for the final announcement of the 31-man squad, and then Georgia come calling at Murrayfield on Friday night in Scotland's final match before opening their World Cup campaign against Ireland on 22 September.

  2. Townsend pleased with 'focussed' Scotland

    FT: Georgia 10-44 Scotland

    Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has been giving his thoughts to our reporter Andy Burke.

    "It was a focussed performance with a lot of aggression. We chipped away at the scoreboard through penalties, and when the game opened up a little bit I thought some of our attack play and support play was excellent," he said.

    "We knew we'd be tested in defence around the ruck area, our line-out maul and the scrum and while there's areas to improve there I felt that was a big step up. Our attack game got going, but I still think we could do things a bit better."

    Quote Message: I've been back running and training with the team this week. I'm in good shape, this week meant I could get a couple of extra sessions in that travelling away wouldn't have allowed. I'm just at the mercy of the coaching staff for the next week.

    Quote Message: I think Gregor Townsend will have picked the squad, apart from maybe the centres.

    That was Scotland's last game before the squad is announced on Tuesday. Who's on the plane, who isn't? Give us your thoughts at #BBCSportScot.

  8. 'Scotland snuffed out Georgian passion'

    FT: Georgia 10-44 Scotland

    Colin Gregor

    Former Scotland Sevens captain on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Job done. The scoreline was comfortable - that came from the first 15 minutes when Scotland snuffed out the Georgian passion. They managed the game very well, they weren't under a massive amount of pressure at any point. By no means perfect, a couple of things to work on, but the way Scotland's away form has been - that in itself is an achievement, a monkey off the back. Scotland had everything to lose going over there.
  9. Post update

    Fraser Brown

    Glasgow and Scotland hooker on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: The one thing that would slightly concern me is every time Georgia got within 10 meters of the line Scotland conceded penalties. I think going forward - obviously it's a pretty comfortable win - but that's definitely a big area that you would look to address heading towards next week let alone the World Cup.
  10. Post update

    FT: Georgia 10-44 Scotland

    I must confess, I missed Adam Hastings adding the conversion to Scott Cummings' try. Sorry Adam!

  11. Full-time- Georgia 10-44 Scotland

    A first win on the road in 14 months for Scotland. A nice tonic ahead of the World Cup. Five tries to boot.

    Scotland celebrate
  12. Post update

    Georgia 10-42 Scotland

    Georgia are battering away, looking for a second try. It's slow stuff, though. A penalty cometh and they'll have a line-out 5m out.

  13. Gulf clear to see

    Georgia 10-37 Scotland

    Andy Burke

    BBC Scotland rugby reporter at Dinamo Arena

    The blood and thunder power game we expected from Georgia just hasn’t materialised. The spell which resulted in Kakha Asieshvili’s try was the one good passage of play, but they have largely been outplayed.

    Scotland haven’t been perfect and the set-piece in particular still needs improvement, but a first win on the road in 14 months is a great confidence-builder ahead of the World Cup.

  14. Get Involved #bbcsportscot

    Georgia 10-42 Scotland

    Steve: Following from Greece with lots of people staring strangely at me as I follow text, keep it up.

    Thanks Steve, finger cramping up in the closing stages but we should get it over the line.

  16. Try- Georgia 10-42 Scotland

    Scott Cummings

    The Glasgow lock gets his first Scotland try!

    Scotland win the penalty, tap it, Jamie Bhatti trucks it up and Cummings smashes over off the back of it. The conversion is wayward, the first points missed from the boot tonight.

  17. Post update

    Georgia 10-37 Scotland

    Long story short, Scotland have Georgia pinned back on their own line. After a botched attack, a chip-kick from Adam Hastings behind his own try-line gets Scotland up the pitch.

    Then a Georgian knock on gives Ali Price the opportunity to box-kick into the corner.

  18. Post update

    Georgia 10-37 Scotland

    Grant Gilchrist is pinged for taking the jumper in the air at the line-out. The Georgians have another further up the pitch now. Here they come...

  19. Post update

    Georgia 10-37 Scotland

    No action. Darcy Graham takes a boot to the head but it's deemed accidental. It did look innocuous to be fair, it wasn't a kick.

    On we go, Georgian line-out.
