Scotland will host New Zealand in the autumn internationals today as they look for a first win over the All Blacks in their first meeting in five years.

Scotland were denied a historic win against New Zealand in their last game in 2017, while the All Blacks held on to a thrilling 22-17 win at Murrayfield.

New Zealand has been vulnerable at times this year, with Ireland, France, South Africa and Argentina all taking victories over the All Blacks last year.

Scotland were beaten by Australia in their first autumn international, but have recalled Finn Russell after last weekend’s win over Fiji.
