Andy Robinson's Scotland are aiming for a second successive victory against Australia when they meet in Newcastle on Tuesday.

Two penalties from Phil Godman and a Dan Parks drop goal sealed a 9-8 victory for Scotland the last time the sides met, at Murrayfield in November 2009.

Prior to then Scotland last beat the Australians back in July 1982 when a Keith Robertson try helped the tourists to a 12-7 win in Brisbane.

The two also came head-to-head in the quarter-finals of 2003 Rugby World Cup, when second-half tries from Stirling Mortlock, George Gregan and David Lyons blew away a stubborn Scotland side 33-16.
