Scotland’s Autumn International test series got off to a disappointing start in Edinburgh last weekend as stand-off Blair Kinghorn missed a late penalty against Australia in a 16-15 win for the Wallabies.
That was the first of four matches that Gregor Townsend’s side will play during the international window and they are back in action again this Saturday as Fiji visit BT Murrayfielld. It will be the first time the two nations have faced each other since 2018 where the Scots were 54-17 winners.

Scotland vs Fiji Autumn International team news
Scotland are expected to name their starting XV and replacements for Saturday’s Autumn International test match with Fiji on Thursday, November 3. There are likely to be several changes to the team that lined up last weekend against Australia with Gregor Townsend now having his full complement of players available for selection. As the Australia match fell outside the recognised international window, the Scotland coach could only select players from Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors.
However, the entire squad is now available for selection meaning Townsend can welcome back the likes of former captain Stuart Hogg. Also now available for selection are: Ewan Ashman, Rory Sutherland, Jonny Gray, Josh Bayliss, Andy Christie, Ben White, Adam Hastings, Chris Harris and Cameron Redpath.
Scotland vs Fiji Autumn International referee
Australian referee Nic Berry will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s Autumn International between Scotland and Fiji at BT Murrayfield. The Scots are very familiar with the Aussie, having already been refereed by him three times this year with the most recent being in their summer tour of Argentina. The assistant referees will be James Doleman of New Zealand and Pierre Brousset of France while the TMO is Australia’s Brett Conan.
