A full update, including fixtures, can be found here: Scotland to Compete in 2020 Autumn Nations Cup.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting many aspects of public life in Scotland the move by the Scottish Government to a new tiered level of restrictions on travel and households meetings across the country means it will not be possible to host spectators at BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh for the Autumn Nations Cup in November.
Scottish Rugby has consulted with the Scottish Government regularly on this matter and they agree it will be unlikely crowds will be possible in the coming weeks, due to the restrictions now in place. Scottish Rugby is disappointed supporters won't be able to come to the stadium this autumn, but consultation continues with the Scottish Government in the expectation that crowds can return at some capacity soon and specifically for the 2021 Guinness Six Nations, should the public health guidelines allow.
