Flying Fijians will be tough to beat: Townsend

Scotland Coach Gregor Townsend says the Flying Fijians will be a tough team to beat at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.
 
Speaking to Planet Rugby, Townsend said he knows how great an opportunity it is to play some of the leading teams in the southern hemisphere ahead of next year's Six Nations and the Rugby World Cup.
 
"Fiji are an exciting team to watch with their free flowing and powerful brand of rugby, and they can be one of the best teams in the world when they get their game right."
 
"We know Australia well having played them a number of times over recent years and it's always a special occasion when they come to BT Murrayfield."
 
Murrayfield will host Australia, Fiji, New Zealand and Argentina in the Autumn Nations Series as Scotland are set to face rigorous testing in the build-up to next year's Six Nations and 2023 Rugby World Cup.
