Scotland thrashed Russia 61-0 and got the bonus point they badly needed last night in the Rugby World Cup.

It was their biggest win since they beat Japan, funnily enough, by 92 points back in 2004.

They are due to play Japan in Yokohama this Sunday, and they need to beat them again if they are going to make it through to the quarterfinals.

The Guardian reports Scotland will have to do it handsomely, because if Japan pick up a bonus point for losing by seven points or fewer, Scotland will need to get one for scoring four tries or more.

It could get more complicated.

Ireland play Samoa on Saturday, and there is a chance that all three teams could finish tied on 15 points each.

If that happens top spot would all come down to points difference, with the runner-up then decided by head-to-head between second and third.
