Six Nations: How the Scotland players rated against Italy - two stand-out players in victory
Blair Kinghorn rose to the challenge of replacing Finn Russell at stand-off as he scored a hat-trick of tries to help Scotland end their Guinness Six Nations campaign with a bonus-point 26-14 victory over spirited Italy.
The versatile Edinburgh back went over the line either side of half-time to add to an earlier touchdown by Duhan Van Der Merwe. And he then completed the scoring in the last moment of a hard-fought game as the Scots fended off an Azzurri fightback to ensure they ended the championship with three wins out of five for the first time since 2018.
We give each player in the Scotland XV a mark out of ten for their performance at BT Murrayfield.
5. Jonny Gray
No Grant Gilchrist and Richie Gray meant he had to take on lineout responsibilities and did so. Impressive tackle stats as usual, making 14. 6 Photo: Ross MacDonald - SNS Group / SRU
