Canada v Scotland: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Almost two years after they last played a test match on home soil, rugby union returns to Canada when they take on a much-changed Scotland side in what could be an intriguing contest.

Les Rouges have not played an international match at all since a 40-15 victory over Brazil last November, while Gregor Townsend’s side take to the field for the first time since finishing fourth at the Six Nations earlier this year.

Scotland boast the superior head-to-head record with four wins from five total meetings, including in the most recent encounter back in 2018, when George Turner went over twice in a 48-10 victory in Edmonton.

However, Les Rouges did claim a shock win themselves in the second-ever meeting between the two nations as a Scotland side that included the likes of scrum-half Mike Blair and record points-scorer Chris Paterson were beaten 26-23 in Vancouver back in 2002.
