While victory last Saturday against Argentina was a welcome result, and while the nature of the performance that secured that 41-31 victory was welcomed by the Scottish public, this coming weekend will see a far stiffer test for the Scottish XV. Have we witnessed the beginning of a new dawn, or yet the latest of yet another false dawn for Scottish rugby.

Having beaten England at Twickenham Stadium last week, the reigning World Champions, the All Blacks roll into town defending an unbeaten record against Scotland in Test rugby. The sides have been playing international rugby against each other since 1905, and have clashed on 29 previous occasions. The New Zealand have won 27 times, while they have drawn twice. The teams drew 0-0 in 1964, and then 25-25 in 1983. Both fixtures were played at Murrayfield.

New Zealand have made 13 changes to the team that defeated England, including selecting record scorer Dan Carter to start a Test for the first time in over a year.  While skipper Richie McCaw switches to play at blindside flanker. The Scots have selected the same side that started the game against Argentina as they seek to make rugby history with that elusive first win against the All Blacks.

Sunday, the 11th of November on the New Zealand Tour, Scotland and New Zealand play at Murrayfield, with game time at 14:30 local time. Scotland has never been able to win against New Zealand, so they will be looking for that first time Victory. There have been a total of 28 games played by Scotland against the current Rugby World Cup title holders, and amazingly, Scotland has only been able to avoid losing two teams. Both teams ended up in a draw, once at Murrayfield in 1964 and the other almost 20 years later.
