Scotland host New Zealand in the autumn internationals today as they look to get a first win over the All Blacks in their first meeting in five years.

Scotland were denied a historic victory against New Zealand in their last contest in 2017, as the All Blacks held on for a thrilling 22-17 win at Murrayfield.

New Zealand have been vulnerable at times this year, with Ireland, France, South Africa and Argentina all registering victories over the All Blacks in the past year.

Scotland were defeated by Australia in their opening autumn international but have recalled Finn Russell following last weekend’s win over Fiji.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Team news

Finn Russell goes straight into the Scotland XV at fly-half after being recalled to Scotland’s squad follwing injury.

Russell has got the nod to start ahead of Blair Kinghorn at number 10. Kinghorn is once again named on the bench after playing second fiddle to Hastings against Fiji last weekend.

In the other two changes to the team, Fraser Brown replaces the injured George Turner at hooker, while Sione Tuipulotu returns at number 12 in place of Cam Redpath, who will turn out for Bath this weekend.

The All Blacks will debut wing Mark Telea, who was brought in as injury cover for Leicester Fainga’anuku, who returned home for family reasons before the tour-opening test in Japan.

Telea starred for the Blues in their run to the Super Rugby Pacific final, and joined the All Blacks squad as cover during the home series against Ireland.

The All Blacks have made eight changes and a positional switch after beating Wales 55-23 last weekend in Cardiff.

They also brought in hooker Samisoni Taukei’aho and prop Nepo Laulala, and rotated in Akira Ioane on the blindside flank and moved Shannon Frizell to the reserves.

Finlay Christie and Beauden Barrett were the halves instead of Aaron Smith and Richie Mo’unga, and centers David Havili and Anton Lienert-Brown were starting after being reserves for the last two tests.
