Scotland's opponents confirmed

Scotland will play 12 internationals next year, it was confirmed today.

In addition to their five matches in the RBS 6 Nations Championship, Scotland will face a busy June with a four Test match summer tour.

It will comprise internationals against the US Eagles in Houston, Texas on Saturday 7 June; Canada in Toronto on Saturday 14 June; Argentina (venue TBC) on Saturday 21 June; and South Africa (venue TBC) on Saturday 28 June.

The 2014 Autumn Tests on home soil will see Scotland face Argentina (weekend of Saturday 8 November); New Zealand (weekend of Saturday 15 November) and Tonga (weekend of Saturday 22 November).

Dominic McKay, Scottish Rugby’s Director of Commercial Operations, Communications and Public Affairs, said: “The past year has seen a cumulative attendance of more than 500,000 for our top of the bill Scottish Rugby matches and the innovations we’ve introduced to reward supporters’ loyalty – including our season pass – have proved very popular.

“We will have five home Scotland matches in the 2014 calendar year and we will be working hard – both on and off the field – to deliver a memorable day out for all Scotland supporters.”

Gavin Scott, the Scotland team manager, said: “We’re waiting confirmation from our counterparts in Argentina and South Africa as to where our Test matches will be staged.

"I know fromy my own planning trip to North America that there's a lot of excitement in both the US and Canada about our Tests there and I'm sure Scotland supporters will be out in force at all our summer Tests."
