Scotland will travel down under for a one-off Test against Australia in June.

Andy Robinson's side will take on the Wallabies at the Ausgrid Stadium in Newcastle on Tuesday 5 June.

The Scots won the last meeting of the two sides 9-8 at Murrayfield in 2009 and Australia finished third at the recent World Cup.

"We're really pleased to have this fixture as part of our tour in June which will also encompass Test matches against Fiji and Samoa," said Robinson.

"The last time we played against Australia was a very good game and a special win for Scotland.

"We're very much looking forward to going to Newcastle and playing our part in the inaugural Test match at the stadium there."

Fixture dates and venues for the encounters with Fiji and Samoa are still to be confirmed and Scotland are hoping to play a Super XV side on Saturday 9 June.
