With 3:00pm starts for both games, the heat is going to be a major factor for Scotland. Hopefully it wont affect them too much, but it is worrying considering our guys usually don't play in anything above 15 degrees. Luckily They are getting to Fiji a week early so it should help with acclimitisation. I think in the end Scottish organisation and discipline, as well as our superior strike power out wide should see us through. With a likely back three of Visser, Hogg and Evans... I'm confident Scotland has the firepower to comfortably see off both pacific teams.

Good for Scotland as Evans adds another option,in the backs.I just hope they dont get carried away with the wallabies vuctory.As Fiji ans Samoa are class teams in their own right,and the islands offer a new set of challanges ie the heat and fast tempo rugby .Scotland wilted in Rome earlier this year ,and i hope we dont see a repeat of that.Now the victory over Australia is achived ,Scotland have to show they can do more than defend in bad conditions for this tour to be considered a success imo,and conditions should be good for playing attacking running rugby ,and scoring tries hopefully
