29-10-2022 Daily Predictions International Rugby Scotland vs Australia

Scotland vs Australia

Scotland welcomes Australia to Murrayfield to kick off the Autumn Internationals. The home side will be looking to dust of their rustiness as they prepare for matches against Fiji, New Zealand and Argentina after Australia. Scotland have won their last three matches against the Wallabies and are looking to make it four in a row for the first time ever. The home team will be using these Autumn tests to evaluate their depth ahead of next year’s Six Nations and more importantly the 2023 World Cup in France. Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has sprung a major surprise by not selecting mercurial flyhalf Finn Russell in his squad and it will be interesting to see who will be playing in the pivot role.

TIP: The home side were last in action back in July when they lost the test series 2-1 away to Argentina. Australia will be hoping for winning start to their end of year tour after they lost their last three matches in the Rugby Championships. They will welcome back former captain Michael Hooper for this match after he took an extended break from the game citing mental health issues. The bookies have Australia as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.85, Playabets 1.80 and Sunbet 1.80


Scotland vs Australia

  • Scotland have won the last three matches between these sides.
  • In the last four home matches against Australia both sides have won two apiece.

Latest results for both teams

Scotland lost their last match 34-31 to Argentina while Australia lost 40-14 to New Zealand in their last match.


They will be desperate to avoid a fourth straight loss to the Scotsmen. Australia have been very poor on the road as have only won one of their last six away matches. That lone win was achieved in Argentina but they then lost the next match 48-17 to the Pumas. Scotland have named a number of young players in their squad and will no doubt have one eye on the challengers of next year. The Australians will be looking to end their win drought and have the more experienced and settled team. The return of Hooper to the team will prove to be the difference. We are backing the visitors to win this match by six points.
