Scotland v Italy
Saturday 2nd February 2019
Since the beginning of the 6 Nations Championship this fixture has always been closely fought with both the Scots and Italians unwilling to back down. Traditionally Scotland has held home ground but the Azzurri has grown in competitiveness year on year producing intimidating rugby which could spell the end of the Scots dominance at Murrayfield.
With a tense and closely fought match in 2018 at the Stadio Olimpico the Scots will be keen to push the advantage on home turf and cement their dominance, this fixture will be an opening salvo, both teams keen to show the rest of the playing field their form and skill.
