Scotland vs New Zealand Autumn International team news
The big news for Scotland is the return of Finn Russell for Scotland having not been named in Gregor Townsend’s initial squad. With fellow fly-half Adam Hastings dropping out through an injury sustained in last weekend’s win over Fiji, Russell was a late call up after his initial, highly controversial, omission. Both nations will be expected to name their starting XVs and replacements for the match either on Thursday, November 10, or Friday, November 11.
Scotland vs New Zealand head-to-head record
This weekend’s test match will be the 32nd meeting of the two nations and Scotland have never beaten the All Blacks. New Zealand have won 30 out of 32 of the fixtures while the other two, played in 1964 and 1983 respectivley, ended in draws. The last meeting between Scotland and New Zealand came at Murrayfield in the 2017 Autumn International series and it was a heartbreakingly narrow defeat for Scotland who pushed the All Blacks all the way in a 17-22 win for the visitors.
The previous two meetings before that also came at Murrayfield during Autumn test series. In 2014, New Zealand were 24-16 winners in another tight contest. In 2011 it was a much more one sided affair with the All Blacks running out 51-22 winners in Edinburgh.
