Scotland have revealed their new change strip that will worn during the November Tests.
The design is based around the 'Saltire' with the Scottish flag emblazoned across the lower half of the shirt and the sleeves. Andy Robinson's side are set to wear the kit when they come face-to-face with the World Cup holders New Zealand at Murrayfield on November 10.
Ross Ford has skippered the side in the past and he is relishing the chance to run out at Murrayfield against the All Blacks. Ford said: "Playing for your country is one of the highest honours a rugby player can achieve and running onto the pitch at Murrayfield with the St. Andrew's Cross across our chest will be a 'hairs on the back of the neck' moment."
The Scottish Rugby Union's director of commercial operations Dominic McKay added: "It's just over a month to go before we welcome some of the best teams in world rugby to Scotland for what will be a great series of intense, exciting rugby. Canterbury has produced a kit which I am confident will underline the great virtues of playing for the Scotland national team."
