The Scottish rugby team claimed a shock 9-6 victory against Australia Down Under on Monday.

A weakened Australia team lost in horrendous conditions to the resurgent Scots.  Australia coach Robbie Deans made no excuses about his side’s failure, “We had enough possession to put the game out of reach and credit to Scotland, we just couldn’t put them
away,” Deans said.
While the Wallabies had the greatest amount of possession, spending almost the entire second half in Scotland’s half the Scot’s put on a heroic display to deny the Australian’s in their own back yard. Dean’s was pensive claiming they just  ”didn’t  have the co-ordination to get the job done.”   the Wallabies now have to re-focus on their next Test against Wales on Saturday.
Wallaby scrum-half Will Genia was equally perturbed at his side’s inability to turn possession into scores: “They had the one opportunity in the second half and they took it, full credit to Scotland. ”The conditions played a big part in the game, we had plenty of possession and we had to tick the scoreboard over and we didn’t.  We’ll go away and we’ll prepare as well as we can, it’s a new Test match, it’s a new game.  We’ll learn from this match.”
There is a bumper calendar of International fixtures this Saturday with Ireland taking on New Zealand, Australia taking on Wales and South Africa playing England.
