The venues for Scotland's World Cup Pool B matches in New Zealand have been confirmed.

Changes were forced upon the autumn event following the recent earthquake in Christchurch - one of the original host cities.

Scotland had been set to face Argentina in the city in a match that has been moved to Wellington.

The Scots also face Romania and Georgia in Invercargill and England in Auckland in the group stages.

Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said he was happy to have clarity over his side's fixtures.

"We look forward to finalising our plans given the clarity we now have from the tournament organisers.

"We know there will be much excitement in Invercargill that we will now play two games there and we look forward to engaging with the community in Wellington which is now home to our match against Argentina," he said.

Tournament organiser, Rugby New Zealand 2011, announced that ticketholders for either matches scheduled for Christchurch, or the Scotland v Georgia match, originally to be staged in Dunedin, will be refunded and given a priority period to purchase tickets for the rescheduled matches.

Scotland's World Cup schedule:

Saturday 10 September v Romania at Rugby Park, Invercargill

Wednesday 14 September v Georgia at Rugby Park, Invercargill

Sunday 25 September v Argentina at Wellington Regional Stadium, Wellington

Saturday 1 October v England at Eden Park, Auckland
