Scots to play at Kilmarnock

Scotland will break new ground by playing their autumn test against Tonga on Kilmarnock Football Club's new artificial pitch.

The Scottish Rugby Union confirmed Rugby Park will host the November 22 clash, which follows Murrayfield contests against Argentina and New Zealand.

Kilmarnock installed the new surface over the summer and it will stage its first competitive game when Aberdeen are the visitors on Scottish Premiership duty on Wednesday.

A Tweet from the SRU read: "The international at Rugby Park will be a world-first! The first time a Tier 1 union has played an international on an artificial pitch!"
