AT THE last Rugby World Cup in France, in 2007, Scotland fans didn’t get to see too much of the unknown – while two pool games were in art-loving Saint-Étienne that year, their other two were in Edinburgh.

In 2023, though, you tartan voyagers will have many more sights to drink in. The Vieux Port of Marseille is sure to be a hit from the get-go. While Scotland have the daunting task of taking on world champions South Africa in the bustling south-coast town, it will be hard to ignore all that surrounds the match.

The Stade Vélodrome is a true sporting theatre and home to some of the most passionate soccer fans in the world – there is a reason that Toulon love taking showcase rugby matches there! Then there’s the historic Canebière high street and the Château d’If to boot…

The Scots’ southern sojourn also takes in the French Riviera as Nice plays host to their second round match. A haven for artists and elites through the years, Scots will hope for a rugby masterpiece in the Allianz Riviera stadium too!

Libations in Lille will have big appeal – in the funky student town, visitors may find themselves relaxing by the canal or the Grand Place. And then there is Paris.

There’s the small matter of the rugby, too. When it was made, Scotland skipper Stuart Hogg said of the draw: “To be the best we need to beat the best and we’re going to be up against the current world champions and that’ll be a huge test for us, but one we’ll be looking forward to.

“We’ve played Ireland a lot and know the challenges they come with. It’s about building to the Rugby World Cup now.”
