Scotland face Australia for the first time in almost four years in an Autumn Internationals fixture at Murrayfield this afternoon.

Gregor Townsend’s side kicked off their set of fixtures with a win over Tonga last weekend, and will also face South Africa and Japan this month.

Dave Rennie’s side are ranked third in the world following their back-to-back victories over world champions South Africa in the recent Rugby Championship, although they finished behind winners New Zealand after losing both matches to the All Blacks.
