Peter Lydon scored a touchline conversion with the last kick of the game to give London Scottish a dramatic 22-20 win over Yorkshire Carnegie at the Athletic Ground.

The Scots trailed 8-20 with just 10 minutes to play, but two converted tries gave them a win that will live long in the memory for the 1236 in attendance in Richmond.

The win means that Scottish have now won three matches in a row in all competitions, and completed a league double over Carnegie in the most breathtaking fashion.

Scottish had the better of the opening exchanges and were showing great attacking flair, which almost resulted in the opening score.

Lydon plucked a ball out from the sky and beat the first man to break away down the right wing. He offloaded inside to Howard Packman but the winger was hauled down and the ball was eventually lost.

A penalty from Lydon in the 15th minute edged the Scots in front, before the Irishman scored on the half-hour mark from turnover ball. The ball was popped out to Will Carrick Smith, and Alex Grove drew in the defender before the full-back ran in from 30 metres to score the first try of the afternoon. The conversion went wide, but the Scots held an 8-0 lead.

Yorkshire Carnegie came back strongly and dominated the rest of the half to lead 10-8. They were awarded a penalty try on 35 minutes after rumbling ever closer to the line, which also saw Tinus du Plessis sent to the sin-bin.
