Scotland scored eight tries to beat the Wallabies 53-24 at Murrayfield on Saturday.
The Scots pushed the All Blacks close last weekend, but had no problem putting away a Wallabies team that had to play with 14 men for the whole of the second half.
Scotland suffered a big blow before kick-off when Lions fullback Stuart Hogg was ruled out through injury. That saw New Zealand-born wing Sean Maitland shift to 15 and Namibian-born wing Byron McGuigan (who attended Milnerton High in Cape Town) starting at 11.
Finn Russell opened the scoring for Scotland with a 14th-minute penalty and that was followed by a first Test try for McGuigan, who pounced on the loose ball and then won the foot race to dot down. Russell added the conversion to give his side a 10-point lead.
The Wallabies responded with two tries to Tevita Kuridrani, in the 33rd and 37th minutes. The first came from a clever Bernard Foley grubber and the second after some great skill from the Wallabies flyhalf.
That saw the visitors lead 12-10, but they would suffer a huge setback just before the break when Sekope Kepu was red-carded for a shoulder charge on Hamish Watson.
The 14-man Wallabies made a good start to the second half when Kurtley Beale scored a try to level the scores, but Maitland cancelled that out soon after with a five-pointer of his own.
Jonny Gray, Huw Jones and McGuigan then scored for Scotland in quick succession to give them a commanding 39-17 lead after 60 minutes.
Lopeti Timani worked his way over for the Wallabies with 11 minutes remaining, but late tries to John Barclay and Stuart McInally took the hosts past the 50-point mark.
