Wales face Scotland at Netherdale, Galashiels this autumn

Wales will take on Scotland at Netherdale in Galashiels on Friday, November 2 (7.30pm kick-off) in the European Championship.

Scotland last hosted a fixture at Netherdale back in 2015, when they narrowly lost 24-22 to Ireland, who went on to lift the trophy that year. 

It will be Wales' second outing of the European Championship as John Kear's men travel to France the weekend before. 

Details of both the trip to France and Wales' home match against Ireland are yet to be confirmed. Announcements will be made as soon as the details are finalised. 

There is plenty at stake during this year's tournament. 

The top two teams will automatically qualify for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup, which will be hosted in England.

The nations finishing third and fourth will face Italy, the two top teams from Euro B (featuring Russia, Serbia and Spain) and winners of Euro C (comprising six nations) in a competition in October/November 2019, comprising of two pools.
