The Scots face Samoa in their final match in Pool B at St James' Park in Newcastle on Saturday, knowing a win would guarantee their progression to the knockout stages.

Tens of thousands of Scots are expected to travel to Newcastle for the game, giving Laidlaw and his teammates a strong support base.

It is an important part of the build up to a game.

For Scotland that meant Borders' very own Greig Laidlaw took the training session.
