After the autumn Test match internationals, mainly, played in Europe, the surprise result was Scotland’s (6) eight-try rout of Australia (4) 53-24. The Wallabies played with 14-men after a red card reduced the side, and Scotland put 31 points on the board to Australia’s 7 in a runaway second half. 

New Zealand (1) defeated Wales (7) to go three wins and no losses on this tour, beating France 38-18, Scotland 22-17, and Wales 33-18.
