After running out comfortable 44–10 winners in Tbilisi, Scotland will have high expectations for Friday night's return game against Georgia.

The match at BT Murrayfield will serve as Scotland's final test game before they head to Japan for the Rugby World Cup in two weeks time.

Gregor Townsend's full 31-man World Cup squad – announced at Linlithgow Palace on Tuesday - will be in attendance for what should be a lively occasion as the Scots look to take full advantage of their final chance to build momentum before the competition begins.
