Japan have today been announced as Scotland’s opponents this autumn, joining Australia and South Africa in heading to BT Murrayfield in November.
The Brave Blossoms, who will also play against the British & Irish Lions at the same venue on Saturday 26 June as part of the latter’s preparations for their own upcoming tour, will face Scotland for the first time since the 2019 Rugby World Cup Pool A match in Yokohama, which the hosts won 28-21.
Having already announced matches with Australia and South Africa on November 7 and 13 respectively, Scotland’s fixture with Japan will be played on Saturday 20 November.
Kick-off times for all three games will be confirmed in due course, with individual match tickets scheduled to go on sale in July.
