Scrum half Jamie Dobie made his Scotland debut as a replacement this afternoon in a 60–14 win over Tonga.

The run out at Murrayfield was the first of Scotland's Autumn internationals, and Dobie came on for Glasgow Warriors teammate Ali Price with just over 20 minutes left in the match.

It was an international bow at the third time of asking for the 20-year-old, after being part of Scotland's Six Nations squad for the match against France, and then named in the squad for the summer tour that was due to include trips to Romania and Georgia before Covid-19 forced that entire series to be cancelled.

Dobie, a former Highland minis player, had previously turned out for Scotland at under-16 and under-18s level, but it was a proud moment for him taking to the pitch for a first full cap as Scotland scored 10 tries as fans returned to the national stadium.
