If this is the most wide-open World Cup to date, Scotland sit just outside the realm of credible winners as many players of their side are currently in great form. They are not going to win this Competition, not because they are incapable of beating the best team on the world likes of All blacks, Australia etc on their day, but because they have proved time and again they cannot make it their day more than once in a while.

When we think of scotland then We always thing of their two most of recent fixtures against England. In 2018’s Calcutta Cup at Murrayfield venue, scotland played the rugby of the gods, the kind that could make anyone believe they were world-beaters and may win this 9th Edition of the Rugby world cup title. Finn Russell and his myriad runners tore the second best team in the world at the time to shreds. It was “their day”, all right. Then, as surely as night follows their day, Scotland travelled to Dublin in the next round and on that occasion its imploded.

In 2019’s Calcutta Cup encapsulated this Scotland vintage as well as any game: 31-0 down after half an hour; 38-31 up with three minutes to play; 38-38 at the death.

If we seen this time of RWC 2019 clash then Scotland who is drawn in the Group A so it theoretically the hardest for the scotland as team to face Japan ranked higher than Fiji and also to Argentina and Italy in other teams to face. Scotland will open with all guns blazing against Ireland, their chances of winning directly linked to that match, but the game that will likely decide the pool is their final-round fixture against the hosts in Yokohama, where the final will be played.

“I went out on 9 September 2018, exactly one year before we go, to get a good look at the country at the specific time of year we are going,” explains Scotland’s performances services operations manager David Edge.
