Scots are underdogs here having never beaten New Zealand (we've tied twice since the first match in 1905). The All Blacks are always good, currently ranked number 3 in the world, while Scotland is ranked 8th.

Some other stats: Scotland has won 2, lost 4 of its last 6 games, while New Zealand has won 5 and lost 1 (against Argentina) of its last six games. 

The closest the home team has come to beating the kiwis was at the 1983 classic at Murrayfield when the home team, at 25-25, came within a last-minute conversion of winning.

Scotland did win the Victory International at Murrayfield in 1946, however, due to the loss of players during WWII, the game was considered an unofficial international with no caps awarded.
