2017 Italy v Scotland International Test

2017 Italy v Scotland
*Exclusive viewership in the US and Canada

This year so far Scotland is 3-2, having beaten Ireland, Wales, and, most recently, Italy. That last game was a 29-0 shutout at Murrayfield that clinched a winning Six Nations record for Scotland. Scotland has also lost to France and England. Italy finished up the Six Nationals 0-5, but sent shockwaves through the rugby world with their tactical decision not to contest at some rucks, thus changing the offside lines and confusing some opponents, especially England.

This June 10 matchup will be closer than the March 18 clash, as Scotland will be without Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour, and Greig Laidlaw due to British & Irish Lions selection.This promises to be an exciting match and a unique opportunity for both teams to kick off their summer tours with a familiar opponent in unfamiliar surroundings.

The two coaches know each other well, as Italy Head Coach Conor O'Shea and new Scotland Coach Gregor Townsend have played against each other many times.
