Rugby-Scotland add Japan to November test schedule


(Reuters) - Scotland will host Japan in the final match of the autumn series at Murrayfield in November, Scottish Rugby said on Thursday.

Japan will pay two visits to Scotland this year as they are due to face the British & Irish Lions at Murrayfield on June 26, as part of the latter's preparations for their tour to South Africa.

Gregor Townsend's Scotland last met Japan at the 2019 World Cup, with the hosts winning 28-21 in Yokohama to reach the quarter-finals.

Having already confirmed matches with Australia and South Africa on Nov. 7 and 13 respectively, Scotland's game with Japan on Nov. 20 will bring the curtain down on the autumn series.
