Australia vs Scotland | Scotland scored six splendid tries in their first match, so why are fans stressed over confronting Australia? All things considered, the way that their adversaries that day, Samoa, scored five doesn’t look good for Scotland’s guard.
Following a weekend ago’s thrashing to New Zealand, Scotland mentor Gregor Townsend has rolled out four improvements, drafting in Simon Berghan, Grant Gilchrist, Sean Maitland and Ryan Wilson.
Wallabies hooker Stephen Moore will begin his 129th and last test coordinate as he plans to resign from rugby.
“It’s vital that we give him the send-off into retirement that he merits,” said captain Michael Hooper of Moore. “He’s held in such high respect by every one of us here and every one of the players back in Australia who have played with him. It would be incredible for us to turn out this end of the week and show the amount we’ve enhanced since the late spring.” Australia vs Scotland

Meanwhile, the visiting Wallabies secured an impressive 29-21 win against Wales at the Principality Stadium.
But they were unable to grind down a stoic England defence and ended up on the end of a 30-6 beating.

What are they saying?
Gregor Townsend on Australia
“It’s moving on – we play the current No 3 team in the world – arguably the best attacking team in the world.
“Australia beat New Zealand a few weeks ago. They were very good against Wales and had a lot of the game on a wet day against England, so we know we are playing one of the form teams in the world right now. If we drop our standards, we are not going to win.
“We’ve got to have the same endeavour [as the All Blacks game], the same mindset, the defensive performance in the first half especially, and what we did in the second half attack-wise – and then take it to another level.
“That’s the benefit of having another game this week. It is great for our guys that they get to go again. Yes, they are disappointed that they didn’t get the win, but we have another opportunity as a group to play a brilliant side and work to find a way to win.” Australia vs Scotland
“They have improved a lot since then. They are a team on the up. The longer they have been together has helped them. They have excellent coaches. Michael Cheika being one, Stephen Larkham being another.
“Their fitness has improved a lot. I know that was something Southern Hemisphere commentators were talking about with Super Rugby. They look a very fit team. It’s the last game of their tour. They are probably hoping for dry weather given how wet it was last week [at Twickenham]. Australia vs Scotland
