And stand-in captain Blair admits guiding Scotland to their first ever defeat of the All Blacks will require dominance up front and in the lineout.
“The set-piece is always important to get a foot-hold in the game, so Ross Ford is key in relation to the line-out,” said Blair. “Everything you do is built from it.

“If we can match the All Blacks for skill and enthusiasm with the crowd behind us it will put us in a position where we can beat the New Zealanders.”
