Opposition sends Scottish rugby team unlikely good luck message

Opposition sends Scottish rugby team unlikely good luck message
Scotland against the All Blacks in 2012.

By Steve Neville

We’re pretty sure Scotland weren’t expecting that.

With Scotland looking set to take on New Zealand this weekend in the Autumn Internationals, the All Blacks took to Twitter in confident mood.

The Scottish Rugby team asked their Twitter followers for good luck messages to be displayed on the big screen at Murrayfield to spur the team on during the game.

What Scotland probably weren't expecting was a reply from their opposition.

With the world record point scorer Dan Carter set to make his first start in a year against Scotland, we think they may need a little of that luck to get a first ever win over the All Blacks.
