Scotland kick off their inaugural Autumn Nations Cup campaign on Saturday 14 November when they travel to face Italy in Florence.
Buoyed by their finish to this year’s elongated Six Nations, the Scots will be looking to continue in a similar vein of form over the coming weeks.
Gregor Townsend’s side earned many plaudits for the way they overcame Italy, France and Wales following defeats to Ireland and England earlier in the tournament.
After the visit to Italy, they will face France then Fiji at Murrayfield over the following two weekends before the final round of fixtures to determine the final placings on December 5-6.
But before all that Townsend’s troops have Italy firmly in their sights.

What TV channel is showing Italy v Scotland?
Amazon Prime Video acquired the broadcast rights to Italy v Scotland and most of the Autumn Nations Cup matches, meaning the games won’t be shown on any terrestrial TV channels.

What was the score the last time Scotland played Italy?
Supporters won’t have to think back too far to this year’s Six Nations tournament which saw Scotland register a comfortable 17-0 defeat of Italy in February.
Tries from captain Stuart Hogg, Chris Harris and Adam Hastings, who also added a conversion, gave Scotland their first win in six games in the Six Nations.
The Italians endured another difficult Six Nations in 2020, losing all five of their fixtures amid speculation Georgia may take their place in the tournament in future years.
