It has been somewhat of a breakthrough past year and a half for Scottish Rugby in which they have exceeded expectations by claiming wins over Wales and Ireland in the Six Nations and shocking Australia in Sydney in the June internationals.
All the good work started by Vern Cotter has been continued by Gregor Townsend in what has been a smooth passing on of the baton. Scotland have developed a potent backline with a world-class half-back combination in Finn Russell and Ali Price and electrifying strike runners in Tommy Seymour, Stuart Hogg and Lee Jones.
Unfortunately, the Scots have dropped off in form slightly and look more vulnerable at the end of the year than they did in the middle of it. They let in too many soft tries last weekend against Samoa in a high-scoring 44-38 encounter in which they won.
Their cause won’t be helped by the fact that they have some key players missing through injury. Experienced campaigners in the form of scrum-half and regular captain Greig Laidlaw and most-capped player of all time Ross Ford are just two such examples.
Stand-in captain John Barclay, however, has urged his side not to be in awe of the All Blacks. New Zealand and Scotland have played each other on 30 occasions, since their first Test in 1905, and the Scots are yet to be victorious with the All Blacks winning 28 times and there were two draws.
“We have to go and play with intent, be aggressive and try to impose ourselves on them as well,” Barclay said.
“I think if we sit back and are in awe or are inspired by a team then something’s probably quite drastically wrong with our mindset.”
In June, Scotland stunned Australia by claiming a 24-19 victory in Sydney and Barclay hopes for a similar upset against the All Blacks.
