The official 2020-2021 Scottish Rugby Travel, Training and Leisure Collection from Macron was released in-store and online on Friday 21st of August 2020.
For 2020/21, Scotland adopts a familiar look for the home shirt, with the navy blue shirt, white-collar, white and gold trim, white shorts and navy socks, while the alternate shirt reverts back to white, with the same gold trim as the home shirt. The shorts are navy blue, with white and gold panels.
Founded in 1873, the Scottish Rugby Union is the second oldest rugby union in the world. Scotland played in the first-ever international match at Raeburn Place in Edinburgh, a game in which they beat England 1-0 on the 27th March 1871.
Now based at BT Murrayfield in Edinburgh, the Scottish national side annually competes in the Six Nations – a competition which they have won 15 times throughout its various incarnations. The most recent of these was back in 1999, the last ever Five Nations Championship.
Along with the Six Nations itself, Scotland also plays for 4 other trophies during the Six Nations; the Triple Crown (awarded to Scotland, England, Ireland or Wales if they beat all other Home Nations); Calcutta Cup (vs England); Centenary Quaich (vs Ireland); and the Auld Alliance Trophy (vs France).

The 2021 Six Nations will be an interesting one as we are still suffering the ill effects of the global Covid-19 Pandemic. The fixtures slated below would seem very likely to be played behind closed doors with no fans. Obviously, this is disappointing for the fans but also for the finances of all the unions. However, even watching the Six Nations at home or down the pub will still be a real boast following the dire year that was 2020.

This will still be a vital year for Gregor's players as selection for the British & Irish Lions Tour in 2021 is up for grabs for the very best performing players. Also, the road to the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France will be in the back of the mind for any aspiring player.
Scotland has taken part in every edition of the Rugby World Cup since it’s inception in 1987, with a best-placed finish of fourth back in 1991. In the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the Scots lined up in Pool A, alongside Ireland, Japan, Russia and Samoa. A disappointing loss against Ireland kicked off their campaign and a final-round loss to the magnificent hosts, Japan, saw Scotland exit at the pool stage for only the second time in their history at the tournament.
However, finishing in third place gains Scotland automatic qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup which will be taking place in France. The draw took place in December 2020 and Scotland have been drawn in a Pool B alongside current holders South Africa, Ireland, Asia/Pacific 1 and Europe 1. Even making the Quarter-Finals will be a difficult ask in this tough pool!
