Rugby League World Cup: Tonga 24-26 Scotland
Matty Russell scored a late try as Scotland snatched a dramatic Rugby League World Cup win over Tonga, who looked to have pulled off a stunning comeback.
Scotland had led 20-4 at half-time, only for Tonga to run in four tries to stand on the brink of a memorable comeback at Workington's Derwent Park.
But Russel stormed his way through the Tongan defence, with Super League Man of Steel Danny Brough kicking the conversion.

"Many people didn't give us a chance looking at that Tonga team, who showed glimpses, but we found a way to win," Scotland coach Steve McCormack told reporters after the match.
"That is up there with the best Scotland have ever had. We earned everything we got. Tonga were brilliant for 30 minutes, but we found a way to win.
"In the last 10 we held firm. My heart was in my mouth and I was not sitting comfortably, but we found a way to win. I am very proud to be associated with that."
Scotland now face Italy on Sunday with a real chance of earning a quarter final slot.
