RUGBY star Huw Jones hailed Scotland’s record-breaking 53-24 win over Australia on Saturday as “unbelievable”.

The Musselburgh-raised centre scored his third try in as many games, and seventh in just 11 Test caps, as the Scots put 50 points on the Wallabies for the first time at BT Murrayfield on Saturday.

The 29-point defeat was also Australia’s heaviest to a top-tier side in international history.

Jones scored in the second half, long after the visitors had prop Sekope Kepu sent off (pictured below by Andrew Milligan/PA Wire) for a dangerous charge on Hamish Watson.

East Lothian Courier:

The Wallabies prop was yesterday (Wednesday) handed a three-week ban for the charge that saw him sent off a minute before half-time. 

Reflecting on the result, Jones, who grew up on Pinkie Road in the Honest Toun, said: “It was unbelievable to have a win like that and put 50 points on one of the world’s best teams.

"I think our performance really came together, especially in the second half.

“It is quite surreal.”

The 23-year-old also reflected on life away from the pitch during the three-week camp.

“It’s been so fun,” he said. “Outside of the games has been great with the guys, we’ve got a great atmosphere in the squad.”

Jones is hoping the Scots can build on their performances in next year’s Six Nations.

“Two good wins [over Samoa and Australia] and a narrow loss which was agonising [against New Zealand] but we’ll take this for three good games going into the Six Nations,” he said.

Following his duty with the national side, Jones joined his new club side Glasgow Warriors on Monday.

He may have to wait for his debut, though, with many of Glasgow's Scotland stars likely to be rested as they face Cardiff Blues at Scotstoun tomorrow (Friday).
