Head to Head

USA won their last game against Scotland in 2018 but it was a very young Scottish side. Scotland won the four games before that.

USA Form

The USA are doing their utmost to improve as a national side ahead of the 2031 Rugby World Cup which they will host. However, qualifying for the 2027 event is far more important right now.

After failing to qualify for the 2023 Rugby World Cup, the USA are entering desperation mode. However, their form hasn’t been terrible of late. 

America beat Brazil and Spain convincingly in November last year. Last weekend, they suffered a 22-20 home defeat to Romania in their opening match of 2024.

The USA are expected to make wholesale changes to their side for this encounter.

Scotland Form

Scotland were have been playing some great rugby over the last five or six years and are now real challengers against any side. They did well in the Six Nations this season, finishing third.

Their quality showed in a number of games, particularly in their 17-13 defeat in Ireland in the final match of the Six Nations.

With no top Southern Hemisphere team to tour this year, the Scots have embarked on a development tour. They thrashed Canada 73-12 last weekend and while things should be tougher against the USA, they will be looking for another commanding win.

Scotland should ring the changes as they look to bloody new players on this tour.


USA are backed to lose by less than 48 points.
