Samoa vs Scotland Live Stream Watch Online Scotland vs Samoa Game In free the Scotland play Samoa in the 2019 Rugby World Cup taking place in Japan, with Scotland aiming to make a Pool A comeback after a deflating defeat to Ireland last week. Scotland and Samoa have met on eleven occasions since 1991. Scotland have claimed nine victories to Samoa’s one, with the sides drawing once. The last time the the two met Scotland took a 6-point victory in a high-scoring 44-38 affair at Murrayfield, Scotland’s home stadium in Edinburgh.
The New Zealand-born flyer, who plays his club rugby for English champions Saracens could face his cousin, Pete Cowley, who will be on the bench for the Pacific islanders at the Kobe Misaki Stadium.
Injury meant scrum-half Cowley missed out on the chance to play against his relatives when the two sides met at the World Cup in England four years ago, and Monday’s match may prove to be the first time he has opposed Maitland in a Test.
The Pacific islanders will be without centre Rey Lee-Lo and hooker Motu Matu’u after the pair were yellow-carded and then banned for three games for shoulder-led hits to the head of Russia’s Vasily Artemyev during Samoa’s opening 34-9 Pool A win.
Scotland vice-captain Greig Laidlaw said this week that the Samoa duo deserved to be banned as they were guilty of “two clear head shots – and pretty brutal ones at that”. Jackson said he was using reports out of the Scotland camp as motivation for his players as they look to cause an upset against the Six Nations side.
Sean Maitland and cousin Pele Cowley were growing up together in New Zealand they never dreamed they would one day play against each other at a Rugby World Cup.
Maitland, a former Canterbury and Crusaders star, will be on Scotland’s wing in Kobe on Monday night while Cowley will be Samoa’s reserve halfback.
