Ten thousand witnessed the Aus- tralian victory at Melrose.
The home team attacked hotly in I the first ten minutes and the Aus-

McDonald then scored a penalty goal for Scotland to level the scores at the interval. South of Scotland put up a great fight until the last 20 minutes when they appeared to tire.
