The Scottish Rugby Union has announced that Andy Robinson's side will play three Tests in the autumn with all of them against southern hemisphere opposition.
Scotland will travel to the southern hemisphere this summer to face Australia, Tonga and Samoa and their opponents will not get any easier come the autumn. The World Cup-winning All Blacks will travel to Murrayfield on November 11 to face Scotland in the first of three-Tests for Robinson's men.
The second Test, six days later on November 17, sees Heyneke Meyer's Springboks travel to Murrayfield with their autumn Test line up complete with Tonga travelling to Scotland on November 24 with the venue to be confirmed.
Scottish Rugby's CEO Mark Dodson also announced that the Tests will be sponsored by EMC and will be screened on the BBC.
