Laidlaw wants Scotland performance 'for the fans'

Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw is calling upon his team to 'do it for the fans' and clinch qualification for the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup.

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.
