Scotland vs Italy at St Etienne, 2007 World Cup
Map of nations best results, excluding nations which unsuccessfully participated in qualifying tournaments.

Scotland have played in every Rugby World Cup since the inaugural tournament in 1987.

Their best finish was fourth in 1991. In their semi-final on October 26, 1991, Scotland lost 6–9 to England at Murrayfield after Gavin Hastings missed a penalty almost in front of and a short distance from the posts. On October 30 Scotland lost the third-place play-off to New Zealand in Cardiff 13–6.

Since then they have qualified for the quarter-finals in every tournament except in 2011 and 2019, but have not qualified for the semi-finals.

In 2015 Scotland were controversially beaten in the quarter-final match versus Australia following a last minute refereeing error.[1] [2]
