Scotland set up a World Cup showdown with Japan with a comfortable bonus-point win over Russia in Shizuoka.

Adam Hastings got a second string side rolling with two early tries and George Horne was gifted an intercept score.

Horne completed a hat-trick after the interval, while George Turner, Tommy Seymour, John Barclay and Stuart McInally also got in on the act.

Now the Scots must take four more points from Sunday's Pool A finale than the hosts to reach the quarter finals.

Russia end their World Cup adventure with four defeats and a tired-looking team seldom troubled a Scottish defence that kept the opposition scoreless for the second win in a row.

Scotland had steeled themselves for a brutal battle, a pursuit of five points that they expected would be long and hard, as it had been for Japan and Ireland when they played the Bears. It was nothing of the sort. This was a clinical hit on a proud but out-classed and over-powered team.
