SCOTLAND - led by Saints prop Luke Douglas - restored some pride after a shocking World Cup campaign with 14-14 draw with Samoa.

And had Danny Addy slotted one of his two late goal attempts Scotland would have gone through to the qyuarter finals.

Crushing defeats by Tonga and New Zealand followed by having captain Danny Brough sent home for being too drunk to board a flight made it a poor start for the Scots.

The Bravehearts - written off ahead of their must-win clash with a strong Samoa side in Cairns - dug deep to come agonisingly close to securing a quarter-final date with Australia.

Scotland led 14-6 at the break and missed two late chances to nick a memorable win.

But alas they went wide meaning Scotland are out of the World Cup.
