Scotland v Australia: Build-up ahead of final autumn test
The Scots are looking to build on a heartening display against the All Blacks.
Scotland host Australia at BT Murrayfield in their final autumn test on Saturday, with Gregor Townsend's side looking to build on a heartening display against New Zealand last time out.
The Scots looked set to secure a historic victory over the All Blacks as the outstanding Stuart Hogg sped through with seconds remaining.
The fly-half was denied by Beauden Barrett, however, and the visitors held on for a 22-17 win.
Attention now turns to this weekend's clash with Australia, who suffered a controversial 30-6 loss to England last weekend, as Townsend looks to end the test series on a high.
Here we run the rule over how both sides are shaping up.
Scotland have made five changes from the side who ran the All Blacks close.
Late call-up Sean Maitland replaces Lee Jones at wing, while second row Grant Gilchrist, prop Simon Berghan and number eight Ryan Wilson have been promoted to the starting line-up.
Peter Horne replaces Alex Dunbar, who was ruled out after suffering concussion last week.
Ben Toolis, Zander Fagerson and Cornell du Preez find themselves on the bench this time round.
Pro14 Conference A leaders Glasgow Warriors supply eight starters, while in-form Edinburgh provide five.
Starting XV: S Hogg; T Seymour, H Jones, P Horne (all Glasgow); S Maitland (Saracens); F Russell, A Price (both Glasgow); D Marfo, S McInally, S Berghan; G Gilchrist (all Edinburgh); J Gray (Glasgow); J Barclay (Scarlets); H Watson (Edinburgh), R Wilson (Glasgow).
Replacements: F Brown, J Bhatti, Z Fagerson (all Glasgow); B Toolis, C du Preez (both Edinburgh); H Pyrgos, P Horne (both Glasgow), B McGuigan (Sale).
Scotland coach Gregor Townsend is expecting a tough challenge against one of the world's form sides when his side take on the Wallabies.
He said: "We play the current number three team in the world and arguably the best attacking team in the world.
"Australia beat New Zealand a few weeks ago, were very good against Wales and for a lot of the game on a wet day against England so we know we're playing one of the form teams in the world right now.
"If we drop our standards, we're not going to win. They're a top team and current number three team in the world so we know it will take a better performance than last week to win."
Australia have made four changes from the side defeated 30-6 by England.
Tonga-born Taniela Tupou will make his debut for the Wallabies against Scotland, just four days after becoming eligible.
Lukhan Tui, Tetera Faulkner and Henry Speigh also step into the starting line-up.
Meanwhile, former captain Stephen Moore will start in his final rugby match.
