Scotland have been knocked out of the Rugby World Cup 2019.

A pulsating 28-21 defeat to Japan in Yokohama was how their tournament ended.

But how did our boys rate?

STUART HOGG: Never stopped probing but try as he might could not find the hole in the Japanese defence he was looking for. 6

TOMMY SEYMOUR: Rescued his side early on after Finn Russell’s mistake but faded from view after that. 5

CHRIS HARRIS: Handed Japan their bonus point when he allowed Kenki Fukuoka to strip the ball from his grasp. 5

SAM JOHNSON: Carried bravely as the Scots looked to mount a brave fightback at the death. 6

DARCY GRAHAM: Japan decided the young Edinburgh wing was the weak spot in the Scottish defence and got their rewards with two tries down his side. 5

FINN RUSSELL: Gave the Dark Blues hope with his early try but tried to force the issue too much as the clock ticked down. 6

GREIG LAIDLAW: A painful end for the scrum-half in what is certainly his last World Cup game and possibly his final appearance in a Scotland jersey. 6

ALLAN DELL: Given a torrid time in the scrum as the hosts took the upper hand every time the front rows went head to head. 4

FRASER BROWN: The surprise pick at hooker ahead of skipper Stuart McInally and did not let his coach down. 6

WP NEL: Looked off the pace for most of the first half but got Scotland going after the break with his touchdown. 6

GRANT GILCHRIST: Started very bravely with a string of crucial tackles but tired as the game wore on. 5

JONNY GRAY: Escaped punishment for a clash of heads on Shota Horie, which was just as well for his side as he put in a mountain of work. 7

MAGNUS BRADBURY: Won a crucial turnover to help create Russell’s try but then missed a tackle in the build-up to Japan’s opener. 6

JAMIE RITCHIE: The master of the turnover. Scotland’s first half could have been a lot bleaker had it not been for his expert pick-pocketing. 8

BLADE THOMSON: Game passed him by in the first half but proved effective once Scotland caught their breath after the break. 6

Replacements: Zander Fagerson scored his first try in 25 Tests to give Scotland hope late on, while George Horne livened things up at the death. 6
