Scotland have named their team to face Australia in Newcastle.

Former Wallabies Tim Horan and Matt Burke both tipped Wallabies to win on triple M's The Ruck rugby show.

Scotland "will be out to spoil the party" playing an unconventional style of game, moving up in defence with a lot of young players being hard for the Wallabies to read.

Scotland have played 10 tests in Australia with their only win back in 1982 when the Wallabies lost 12-7 at Ballymore in Queensland.
