Scotland to play Tonga on artificial pitch
August 8, 2014
Scotland are to play their autumn Test against Tonga on Kilmarnock Football Club's new artificial pitch.
The Scottish Rugby Union announced Rugby Park will host the November 22 clash, which follows Murrayfield contests against Argentina and New Zealand.
Kilmarnock installed the new surface this summer and it will stage its first competitive game when Aberdeen visit on Scottish Premiership duty on Wednesday.
An SRU tweet read: "The international at Rugby Park will be a world-first. The first time a Tier 1 union has played an international on an artificial pitch."
