Full Time Report: New Zealand 40 Scotland 4

New Zealand made their expected progress to the semi-finals of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup with this eight-try success over Scotland at Headingley.

The Kiwis held a 26-point lead at the interval and added to their tally with a length of the field effort from man of the match Roger Tuivasa-Sheck who picked off a Kane Linnett kick.

Manu Vatuvei had a try ruled out after Bryson Goodwin was adjudged to have put a foot into touch but soon added his name to the scoresheet when he reached over in the 57th minute.

Scotland, on the back of a superb Danny Brough 40/20, scored when Brough’s long pass set up Linnett to send in Alex Hurst.

The Kiwis had one more score in them when Goodwin collected Kieran Foran’s kick.
