Scotland will play four test games at Scottish Gas Murrayfield as part of their Autumn Nations Series.

South Africa and Australia are among those who will visit Edinburgh while the other two games will Scotland take on Fiji and Portugal.

The following week they will face World Champions South Africa, who have won the last two Webb Ellis Cups. The Springboks will travel to Edinburgh on Sunday, November 10. The two teams faced off at the last World Cup with South Africa running out 18-3 victors in France.

Scotland were comfortable victors on that day with a 56-10 win for Frank Hadden’s side.

The Portuguese team impressed supporters at last year’s World Cup and even got a 24-23 victory over Fiji in the pool stage of the tournament before crashing out.

And then the Wallabies will make the trip to Scotland on Sunday November 24 and Australia won their last visit in 2022 in a close match that finished 16-15.

Gregor Townsend is excited for the four tests and believes the different challenges over the four games will have a huge impact on his squad.

He said: “It’s a really exciting prospect to have four home games in succession during November and the varied opposition will test us in different ways.

“Fiji and Portugal both play a fast and open brand of rugby and performed very well in the Rugby World Cup in France. This will be a challenge for our defence but should make for two great games of rugby.

“Having South Africa as one of our opponents will make for a special occasion. Taking on the reigning world champions is the ultimate test for any team in rugby right now and that will be a game everyone will be looking forward to when the time comes around.

“Our final game against Australia will round off the month nicely, against a team we have fought out some entertaining and close encounters with over the last few years.

“This year’s Six Nations once again demonstrated how inspiring matchdays are at home for our players and we can’t wait to play in front of our supporters once again, four weeks in a row.”
