Singapore to host Scotland-Italy for first tier one test

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) " Singapore will host its first tier one rugby international when Scotland and Italy meet for a test on June 10.

Scotland announced the fixture on Friday, saying it maintains the country's aim of "further globalizing the Scottish rugby brand in Asia-Pacific."

The Scots played tests against Japan in Tokyo and Bloemfontein, South Africa, in June last year, winning both games.

Scotland will also play Australia in Sydney and Fiji in Suva as part of its summer tour. The three games will be the first under incoming head coach Gregor Townsend, who officially takes over in May.
