The games will be part of Scotland’s preparations for the Rugby World Cup, before the squad travel to Nice in the south of France.

Scotland v Italy
Saturday 29 July (kick-off 3.15pm)

BT Murrayfield

The fast-improving Italy team recorded eye-catching wins last year against Wales at the Principality Stadium on the last weekend of the Guinness Six Nations, and at home against Australia in the Autumn Nations Series. The team is bursting with flair – their exhilarating young full-back Ange Capuozzo won World Rugby’s Breakthrough Player of the Year award last year – and sets up fans with the perfect start to the Summer Test series.

Scotland v France
Saturday 5 August (kick-off 3pm)

BT Murrayfield

After winning the 2022 Guinness Six Nations Grand Slam, Rugby World Cup 2023 hosts France went through the whole of last year unbeaten, finishing with a win against the current World Champions, South Africa. This year they lost only to Ireland in the Guinness Six Nations, although Scotland ran them close in Paris. The game at BT Murrayfield is the first of two against les Bleus this August – they play again the following weekend in Saint Etienne (kick-off tbc) – and provides the perfect opportunity to see this popular fixture played in glorious summer weather.

Scotland v Georgia
Saturday 26 August (kick-off 5.30pm)

BT Murrayfield

Last summer Georgia beat Italy and ran an Argentine XV close, then narrowly lost to Samoa in the Autumn Nations Series before travelling to Cardiff and beating Wales for the first time. The Scots played Georgia home and away in the Summer of 2019 ahead of the last Rugby World Cup, the game at BT Murrayfield in front a crowd of over 53,000, a record for the fixture and the second-highest ever for a Summer Test. Come and give the Scotland players a rousing send-off in their last game before flying out to the Rugby World Cup!
