What was he thinking?
The half-time whistle has just blown in an absolute thriller at Murrayfield between Scotland and Michael Cheika’s Wallabies.
The Scots raced into a 10-0 lead thanks to a try from Barry McGuigan, who has looked hugely impressive after replacing Stuart Hogg in the warm-up. Australia then hit back with two tries from Kuridrani, before a moment of madness from Sekope Kepu reduced them to 14 men.
Kepu attempted to clear out Hamish Watson a couple of phases after the kick-off with a violent and completely needless shoulder that resulted in a red card.
The resulting penalty ended in a try for Scotland through Price, giving them a 17-2 lead. Cracking game so far with Scotland perhaps en route to another famous win over Australia.
