After suffering the biggest defeat so far of any team at the Rugby World Cup, Uruguay might be forgiven for feeling despondent.

Scottish fly-half Duncan Weir insists the Scotland squad were not shocked by Japan beating South Africa and says it acts as a warning ahead of Wednesday’s meeting.
“We understood that Japan are a growing nation and they’ve been playing some good rugby,” said Weir.
