it would be interesting to see more photos of 'Scorcher's petals. I am not sure if mine was misnamed in the nursery, or whether it is representative of all the Australian plants. I believe 'Scorcher' was found in Victoria in the 1980's. My plant has the deep green shiny leaves more suggestive of R. wichurana, than to R. gigantea or R. moyesii.

Re: Parentage:Madame Abel Chatenay × Seedling of Rosa moyesii Hemsl. & E.H.Wilson
Notes:For clarification of Parentage, see References.

There are now many references in the 'Scorcher' file. I don't think there is any 'clarification' on the pollen parent, either for R. moyesii, or for R. gigantea.
