Scotland will hope to sign off from a largely positive Autumn Internationals 2021 series with a victory against Japan at Murrayfield this weekend.


Gregor Townsend's men racked up a gritty victory over Australia to prove their credentials among the elite nations in the world, though fell to world champions South Africa in their most recent outing.

Overall, he will be pleased by his team's 2021 but will be keen to end on a high note with a big year expected in 2022 for Scotland if they can find consistency against the big boys.
