But on Sunday at the Millennium Stadium their fledgling partnership will be severely put to the test when they take on Jamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies, the Welsh pair having helped the British & Irish Lions secure a 2-1 series victory over Australia last summer.
Scott and Dunbar go into battle with 27 caps between them - while Roberts and Davies can boast a total of 101 international appearances.
However Scott is not about to shirk the challenge and instead is relishing the test.
"Roberts and Davies were the centre combination that kept Brian O'Driscoll out of the Lions line-up for the decider against the Aussies last summer - and the Lions hammered them," Scott told the Daily Record.
"So it will be great for us to get a bearing on where we are. Our partnership is still in its infancy, but we are learning all the time.
"It will be a while before was can be regarded as a proven Test partnership. It is important that coach Scott Johnson has allowed us to develop over the past few games.
"That has certainly helped a lot because I don't play with Alex at club level. Familiarity is vital - look at O'Driscoll and [Gordon] D'Arcy for Ireland. They have played so often together for their country and Leinster that they could probably do the job blindfold.
"Alex and I are both pretty young so hopefully we have many years in front of us as a unit."
