International round-up: Samoa edged out by Scotland, Nemsadze scores in Georgia win

A second half fightback wasn’t quite enough for a Chris Vui-led Samoa, as they were narrowly beaten 44-38 by Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Vui, David Lemi, Jack Lam, and Alapati Leiua all featured as the Pacific islanders fought back from 32-10 down to come within six points of Gregor Townsend’s Scots in a match that featured 11 tries.

Tries from Stuart Hogg and Huw Jones plus a brace by man-of-the-match Stuart McInally put the Scots in control, with Alex Dunbar and Peter Horne also crossing for the home side in the second-half.

Samoa scored four tries following Josh Tyrell's earlier effort, while Ofisa Treviranus' opportunistic try set up a nervy final two minutes, but Gregor Townsend's men held on.

Giorgi Nemsadze scored during Georgia's thumping victory over Canada (JMP UK).

Elsewhere, Giorgi Nemsadze was on the scoresheet at Georgia thumped Canada 54-22 in Tbilisi.

The powerful forward crossed midway through the second half, as a marvelous 34-point performance from full-back, Soso Matiashvili led his country to victory at the Dinamo Arena on Saturday.
