Match Commentary

81'17-22 End of second half
80'Stuart Hogg was bounding through but Hogg is touched by a New Zealand player and lost the ball. It is all over in Edinburgh, Scotland can be proud of their display but ultimately New Zealand were clinical and Scotland wasted chance after chance. 22-17 it finishes, but what a match!
78'Huw Jones outpaces the All Blacks defence after being put through by Stuart Hogg, there's just 3 minutes left on the clock, but the All Blacks only have 14 men on the field. Can Scotland get a famous victory? Finn Russell converts to put Scotland within five.

58'Finn Russell makes a brilliant interception to deny the All Blacks another try before punting the ball up field. Russell and Hogg apply great pressure on the All Blacks in their own 22.
53'Scotland put on pressure from the restart, taking the ball into the New Zealand 22, but Ali Price adds his name to a long list of Scottish players who have made handling errors in this match.
52'Classy from New Zealand as Damian McKenzie goes over from a great All Blacks set play. Have the floodgates opened now? Beauden Barrett puts over one of the easiest conversions of his career to put the All Blacks 15-3 up. It's a long way back now for Scotland.

49'Scotland penalised again. All Blacks kick for touch and they have a line out deep inside the Scotland 22.
49'Alex Dunbar has already gone off injured this half, but Luke Hamilton is the latest injury concern for Scotland. He's being stretchered off, that ankle does not look good. Scotland dropping like flies at the moment.

47'Substitute on - Liam Squire , New Zealand
47'Substitute on - Peter Horne , Scotland
47'Player substituted - Alex Dunbar , Scotland
45'Codie Taylor finds himself with acres of space after patient build up play, and Taylor eases himself over the try line in the corner for the first try of the game. Beauden Barrett misses a tough conversion, so the All Blacks are up 8-3.
45'3-8 Try - Codie Taylor , New Zealand
43'And Scotland penalised pretty much on the try line for not releasing. Great defence from the All Blacks, but Scotland have to be disappointed there.
41'New Zealand under immediate pressure. As they look to break out of their 22, Vaea Fifita drops a pass. Scrum to Scotland around 10 meters out -- these are the chances Scotland must take if they are to pull off an upset.
41'Substitute on - Simon Berghan , Scotland
41'Player substituted - Zander Fagerson , Scotland
41'+33-3 End of first half
41'+1Drop goal-missed
40'The teams are back out for the second half! Will either side be able to grab the initiative?
40'While we wait for the second half to begin and recover from a breathless half of rugby, here is a look at New Zealand's Haka from before kick-off.
40'It's half time at Murrayfield and Scotland can be very proud of that half of rugby. They have dominated against the world champions and deserve to be ahead. They have shown great intensity in his half, running the ball at any opportunity. However, both teams have made far too many unforced errors, Scotland particularly guilty of handling errors at crucial moments.
40'Another unforced error, this time from New Zealand's Codie Taylor, who drops the ball over the touch line. One last chance for Scotland to go into the break ahead.
40'3-3 Start of second half
39'3-3 Penalty goal - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
38'Barrett calmly slots the penalty over the posts and we're all square.
38'Scotland captain John Barclay penalised at the breakdown, and Beauden Barrett will have his first shot at the posts of the day.
36'Scotland penalised at the first scrum. New Zealand opt for another scrum, only for Scotland to turn the ball over! Both teams have been wasteful in this first half.
34'Poor kick from New Zealand followed by poor reactions from Tommy Seymour. The ball takes a nick off the Scottish winger as it dribbles over the try line. Touched behind by Seymour, it's now a scrum on the five meter line for the All Blacks.
31'Scotland penalised at the scrum -- a chance for the All Blacks to clear their lines.
30'It is another opportunity wasted for Scotland, ball knocked-on by Zander Fagerson.
30'Scotland are going through the phases, edging closer to the try line!
28'Naughty hit from Waisake Naholo there. New Zealand penalised, but no card.
28'We're going to the TMO! Stuart Hogg takes a high ball, but a big hit comes in from the New Zealand player in the air.
27'Player substituted - Hamish Watson , Scotland
27'Substitute on - Luke Hamilton , Scotland
26'Brilliant defence from Scotland! Ryan Crotty looked as though he was heading for the try line, but an inch perfect tackle forces the ball out of Crotty's hands! Knock on.
25'Penalty to New Zealand, Scotland penalised for not moving away from the breakdown. The All Blacks kick for the corner.
23'New Zealand clear from the line-out and kick clear... but Tommy Seymour drops the ball over the touch line. Unlucky for Scotland, but the All Blacks have the chance to mount some pressure.
22'Scotland have started very strongly. A great box kick from Ali Price puts Scotland back into the All Blacks' 22.
21'No they can't... knocked on as Scotland looked to take the ball wide.
20'Straight after that, another penalty to Scotland. Russell goes for touch and the kick is perfect. Can Scotland find a way through the All Blacks' defence -- they're on the five meter line?
18'And the All Blacks are penalised again. Not releasing the ball this time. It's been a poor start from New Zealand. Scotland back in the New Zealand half now.
16'First territorial advance for the All Blacks as they enter the Scottish half for the first time, but the ball is ripped away by Hamish Watson. However, the ball is knocked-on, and the Scots are still under pressure.
13'Another penalty in range for Russell -- the All Blacks penalised at the breakdown. This one is a bit trickier, and it is just wide of the post. Still 3-0 to Scotland, who have dominated thusfar.
9'Finn Russell is so close to making a valuable interception which would have had him in for an easy try, but he just could not hold on...
7'Penalty goes to Scotland roughly on the All Blacks' 22. Chance for Finn Russell to get some early points on the board... and he does!
7'3-0 Penalty goal - Finn Russell , Scotland
1'The ball is knocked on -- New Zealand have the ball back and kick long for a line-out.
1'Early penalty goes Scotland's way for obstruction. They kick for touch. Early pressure from the Scots.
1'Beauden Barrett puts the ball in the air and we are underway!
1'The Haka has been performed as ferrociously as ever by the All Blacks and we are nearly ready to get the game underway. Before that, though, a quick reminder of the teams.
1'Here comes the anthems! Of course, followed by the Haka! Kick-off at Murrayfield just minutes away.
1'Scotland know that New Zealand are not invincible -- the All Blacks have already lost three times this year [Ireland, Australia as well as the second Test against the Lions]. However, Scotland need to keep their defence tight -- they were dreadful defensively in their 44-38 victory over Samoa last weekend.
1'Hello and welcome to ESPN's live coverage of Scotland vs. New Zealand. The Scots have never beaten the All Blacks in 30 attempts. Will today be the day for Gregor Townsend's side?
1'0-0 Start of first half
