Scotland kicked off their World Cup campaign with a convincing win over Japan, running away with their clash at Kingsholm.

Four days after the Brave Blossoms shock win over South Africa, another upset seemed possible with Scotland leading just 12-10 early in the second half.

However the fatigue then appeared to kick in for Japan, with Scotland able to run in five tries in 35 minutes, to seal a convincing 45-10 win.

John Hardie scored his maiden Test try to get the ball rolling, before Mark Bennett and a Tommy Seymour interception put the result beyond doubt.

Bennett's second sealed the bonus point, and there was still time for Finn Russell to complete the rout with some smart footwork late on.
