Waratahs cancel Scots clash

NSW Waratahs have pulled out of their summer clash with Scotland.

Andy Robinson's men were set to face the Australian Super Rugby franchise in Sydney on June 10 but the fixture has fallen through due to the depletion of the Waratahs' squad.

Scotland's summer tour has now been reduced to just three games, against Australia, Fiji and Samoa, and they will take a smaller 28-man squad.

"We have had confirmation from the Waratahs that due to injuries and the requirements of the Wallabies squad they would be unable to fulfil the fixture," said Scotland team manager Gavin Scott.

"We have looked into alternatives but, unfortunately, nothing else fits into our tour schedule."

Saturday June 16 – Fiji in Lautoka, kick-off 2pm local time (3am BST)
