Gregor Townsend’s men started their summer tour on Saturday with a commanding 34-13 win over Italy at the National Stadium in Singapore and are in Sydney ahead of their match with the Wallabies this Saturday.

The players threw a ball and frisbee around on Coogee Beach before hitting the waves during their recovery session, while they mingled with locals.

Scottish Rugby had Ben Toolis wearing a player cam to catch some of the action.
