Is Scotland vs Fiji on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Autumn Nations Series fixture

Blair Kinghorn has been backed to bounce back from his last-minute penalty miss against Australia last weekend as Scotland rugby take on Fiji rugby at Murrayfield today, but the fly-half has been replaced by Adam Hastings in the Gregor Townsend’s starting team.

Scotland were defeated by Australia 16-15 in their opening Autumn Nations Series fixture after Kinghorn pulled a penalty kick wide in the closing stages that would have won the match.

“Blair will bounce back, I know he will,” said captain Jamie Ritchie, who will lead out his country for the second time against Fiji today. “It’s important that we get behind him because he did a lot of stuff really well. I back Blair. I’ve seen what he can do week in and week out. I’m confident he will bounce back and be great next week.

“I thought he had an outstanding game all over the park. Then he missed one kick. Everyone makes mistakes and we had opportunities to win the game before that so it shouldn’t have come down to it. I told him to keep his head up and be proud of how he performed.”

What is the team news?

Blair Kinghorn has been replaced at number 10 by Adam Hastings. The Edinburgh man, who missed a last-gasp penalty from 40 metres in last weekend’s defeat by Australia, drops to the bench, with the Gloucester playmaker taking over at fly-half in one of six changes to the XV that started against the Wallabies.

Stuart Hogg will start his first Scotland match since losing the captaincy to Jamie Ritchie when he returns to the side in place of Ollie Smith at Murrayfield. The other two alterations in the back division see Cam Redpath and Chris Harris take over from Sione Tuipulotu and Mark Bennett.

In the forwards, George Turner and Richie Gray - handed his first start since 2017 - take the place of injured pair Dave Cherry and Sam Skinner.
