Live: Samoa v Scotland
SCOTLAND will be looking to complete their tour of the Southern Hemisphere with a hat-trick of wins early on Saturday morning when they take on Samoa.
Scotland on Sunday rugby writer Iain Morrison will be providing live updates from Apia Park from 3.30am.
Andy Robinson’s side will face likely 30-degree temperatures in the tropical sun, meaning the game will be a test of their stamina in the heat as much as their rugby prowess.
Their preparations have also been hit by a late injury scare surrounding Nick De Luca.
The centre, who had an outstanding game in Fiji, became a late worry when he failed to finish the final training session before the game at Apia Park.
