Ross Ford: Has All Blacks in his sights

Sky Bet

Ross Ford is confident that Scotland can register a first win against New Zealand when the two sides meet next month.

The Scots have beaten South Africa and Australia in the past two years but victory over the All Blacks has continued to elude them.

But Scotland captain Ford has revealed that plans are already in place to cause an upset when Andy Robinson's men kick off their autumn Test series against the world champions at Murrayfield on 11 November.

The Edinburgh hooker told BBC Scotland: "We go into every game believing that we can win. It's a great opportunity to play against the best team in the world and everyone will be raring to go.

"It will take an 80-minute performance out of the top drawer, but that's what we have been working on."

Scotland bounced back from their Six Nations whitewash by beating Australia, Fiji and Samoa for a clean sweep in their summer tour.

Ford said: "We've been working on our consistency and repeating our good work. We've just got to make sure that happens against the All Blacks because it will take that to beat them."
