SRU President Alan Lawson said: “Of all the major rugby playing countries Scotland lost more rugby internationalists – some 30 – in the First World War than any other nation.
“Our opposition on Sunday, New Zealand, lost 20 of their international players during the World Wars.
“We will welcome members of the New Zealand party to our act of remembrance and all staff and contractors on duty in the stadium are also being asked to join us if they can.”
Scotland’s cap and points’ record holder Chris Paterson and Scotland kit manager John Pennycuick, a veteran of the Falklands and Gulf wars, will also play a part in the wreath-laying ceremony.
