SA to face Scots

The Springboks will play Scotland during next year’s November internationals at Murrayfield.

Recent reports suggested that the Boks will undertake a Grand Slam tour the year before the World Cup in New Zealand, and now the BBC reported the defending World Champions will definitely play Scotland next year. Scotland’s other opponents during that period are New Zealand and Samoa.

Saru acting MD Andy Marinos also told recently that the Boks will play Ireland at the opening of their Aviva Stadium and the Barbarians on this tour, further lengthening their stay up north under a year before the World Cup begins.
