SCOTLAND KICKED OFF their summer tour with a cosy 24-6 win over the US Eagles in Houston, Texas.

Vern Cotter’s first game in charge of the Scots was a lively affair, with tries from Stuart Hogg and Tim Visser augmenting Graig Laidlaw penalties and a penalty try.

Visser scored on his return to international rugby after a superb, sniping break from Laidlaw. The Dutch winger missed the Six Nations through injury but dotted down his seventh international try and came close to another before knocking on.

Chris Wyles scored two penalties for the USA but captain Todd Clever had a try ruled out for a double movement. Score of the game arrived in the second half as Stuart Hogg, deemed surplus to requirements by Glasgow Warriors at the tail-end of the season, raced in a 70-metre try after winning an aerial joust.
