SCOTLAND have sold out two Autumn Test matches for the first time ever after the final tickets for November’s clash with Australia were snapped up on Tuesday.

Murrayfield will be packed for the second meeting of the year between the two nations, as the Wallabies seek revenge for last month’s 24-19 defeat to the Scots in Sydney.

The announcement of the sell-out for the third and final test, which takes place on Saturday 25 November, follows that of the second test against reigning world champions New Zealand a week earlier – a match which is on record as the fastest-selling autumn test in history.

Gregor Townsend’s side will begin their three-match campaign when Samoa visit on Saturday 11 November in what will be the former Glasgow Warriors boss’ first home game as national coach.

He said: “The Scotland squad and management are hugely grateful for the outstanding and historic backing we have received from our supporters.

“It means a huge amount to everyone involved to play in front of a packed house at BT Murrayfield and we’re looking forward to getting back out there this November, first against Samoa, before taking on New Zealand and Australia.”

Scottish Rugby have advised supporters that a further limited release of tickets is possible in October, but not guaranteed.

Fans who are yet to claim a ticket can join a waiting list to receive details of any further sale for the two sell-outs.
