The Wallabies have added a third Test to their 2017 Spring Tour, with Scottish Rugby overnight confirming a Murrrayfield reunion.

Scheduled for November 25, the clash will be the teams' second of the season, with Scotland coming out to Australia in June, taking on the Wallabies in Sydney on June 17.

That first Test will likely be a weakened Scotland side, though, with the British and Irish Lions series against the All Blacks running concurrently.

The two have had a thrilling recent history, with each of their past five matches decided by less than a converted try.

Most recently, the Wallabies escaped with a 35-34 win over the Scots at Murrayfield, the second of three wins on last year's Spring Tour.
