Scotland retain interest in Rugby World Cup with 34-0 win over Samoa

Scotland revived their Rugby World Cup campaign with a 34-0 victory over Samoa in Kobe, Japan, scoring four tries in a much-improved performance to secure a bonus point that could prove crucial in a tight Pool A.Japan’s stunning upset of Ireland shattered the expected permutations of the pool and the Scots knew they needed to get a big win on the board after their dismal defeat to the Irish in their opener. Winger Sean Maitland and scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw scored converted tries with Stuart Hogg landing a 40-metre drop goal in the first half, while two penalty tries after the break secured the all-important extra point.
