This short history of matches between Canada and Scotland meant that when Scotland hosted Canada for the most recent match between the sides, Canada entered with a better win-loss record than the host side. The most recent match was played in November 2008 in the Scottish city of Aberdeen as the third and final match of the month for both teams. Canada had come off two bad loses vs fellow Celtic sides Ireland and Wales while Scotland had been unsuccessful in its matches vs New Zealand and South Africa. Taking the game away from the home of Scottish rugby, Murrayfield, was a move intended to take the sport to the people and it worked as the people of Aberdeen responded with over 17,000 attending the match. The match was played in cold conditions and ended with snow falling.
