SCOTLAND will play their final match of their Autumn Test schedule in Dublin against Ireland next Saturday [2.15pm kick-off] in the 3rd/4th place play-off of the Nations Cup.
With England’s 13-24 victory in Wales on Saturday afternoon securing their top of Group A finish, and a 29-5 victory for an understrength French team against Italy in the evening leaving them top of Group B, those two sides will play each for the Nations Cup title at Twickenham next Sunday [2pm kick-off].
