Murrayfield officials last night revealed the sides are expected to walk out toa full house today, the first time the ground will have hosted a capacity67,500 crowd for a non-Six Nations match since 1999.

Buoyed by two highly promising results against Portugal and Romania inScotland's opening two matches, fans have been flocking to buy tickets, despitethe highest-ever ticket prices for a match at Murrayfield and a full 15 changesto the home line-up.

Scotland put the finishing touches to their preparation for the match at thenational stadium yesterday evening, and afterwards Simon Webster promised toput on a good show for the bumper crowd.

'I'm looking forward to it. Playing against New Zealand, who are favourites forthis championship is what it is all about. I scored a try the last time weplayed them in 2005, so hopefully I'll get a couple more tomorrow,' said theScottish winger.

'It is just 15 guys against 15 guys and, if we turn up and have an absoluteblinder, then I'd like to think we have a shout at winning this game.

'There is no doubt that the All Blacks are a good team. Nobody is sayingotherwise but, at the end of the day, they are just 15 guys who can be beaten.If they couldn't be beaten then there is no point in any of us being there.
