The Autumn Internationals 2018 will offer the home unions a chance to test their squads against some of the world’s best teams as they begin preparations for the Rugby World Cup in 2019. Each team is set to play four matches this November.
The series opens for Scotland in Cardiff on Saturday 3rd November 2018 with a new fixture against Wales for ‘The Doddie Weir Cup’.

Scotland will become Wales’ first Tier One northern hemisphere opponents since the four-match autumn series began 17 years ago.
