Robinson reads riot act

An angry Andy Robinson revealed "there will be consequences" of Scotland's "unacceptable" 21-15 EMC Test loss to Tonga in Aberdeen, including consideration of his own position as head coach.

Tries from Lua Lokotui and Fetu'u Vainikolo and 11 points from the boot of Fangatapu Apikotoa earned Tonga a memorable win at Pittodrie. Greig Laidlaw kicked five penalties for Scotland, who were blunt in attack, as Robinson's men slumped to a third defeat of the autumn following losses to New Zealand and South Africa.

Asked about his own future, Robinson said: "We'll look at everything. That was a totally unacceptable performance we've witnessed today."

He added: "From my side I'm very angry. There will be consequences because of this performance. I won't go through yet what those will be. It reflects on me."
