Three Scotland internationals will face off when Gloucester meet the Sharks in the Challenge Cup final at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday evening. 

The Cherry and Whites have named Chris Harris and Adam Hastings in their starting XV as they look to win the trophy for the third time in their history. 

For Hastings, it will be a final appearance for the club before he makes his summer switch back to Glasgow Warriors.

Harris, speaking exclusively to Scotland Rugby News earlier this week, knows exactly what to expect from the South African side. 

He said: "It's pretty obvious what they are going to bring.

"I'll trust that I've watched enough clips and sat down with the right boys, such as Hasto, to see how we can pick them apart and nullify their threats. 

"We are ready and we're full of confidence. It's all about the night now."

He's also looking forward to a first appearance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

"A couple of boys have been to watch the NFL there and I think Zach [Mercer] has played there before. 

"I don't know what the ticket sales are like at the minute but it'll be a cool atmosphere. 

"We've got to embrace that and fire into it."

The South African side, meanwhile, have their own Scottish international among their replacements. 

Dylan Richardson, whose only Test appearance came against Japan in 2021, recently returned from a long injury lay-off.

The forward, who can play at hooker or in the back-row, has been named on the bench by head coach John Plumtree.

They will be without injured Springboks duo Jaden Hendrikse and Lukhanyo Am, but do have five World Cup winners in their starting XV in the shape of Ox Nche, Bongi Mbonambi, Vincent Koch, captain Eben Etzebeth and Grant Williams.

Nche said the match is tantamount to a Rugby World Cup Final. 

He said: “This is a serious game, it means a lot to us, it’s something we haven’t done as a union and it’s going to be as big a challenge for us.    

“We’re approaching it the same way: the intensity is the same because we could be the first South African team to win a European title."
