Sean Lamont is still suffering from the rib injury that forced him out of that match just before halftime while Joe Ansbro has been ruled out by the badly cut eye he got in a clash of heads celebrating the win.
Fortunately for Andy Robinson, the head coach, who will name his team this evening (6.30pmBST), there are two immediate and obvious replacements in Tim Visser, who completes his residency qualification
period tomorrow and will be available immediately, and Max Evans, who was not released by his French club in time for the first Test.
A strong indication of Robinson's thinking was shown in the game against Australia where he made only one unforced change to the starting XV.
While that switch - Chris Cusiter for Mike Blair at scrum half - may become fixed in the starting team, the coach is not going to make
more changes than he has to to the side that are so far the only northern hemisphere unit to have won in the south this summer.
He knows that the challenge facing the team this week in the humidity and heat of Fiji could not be more different from that which they overcame in Australia where the cold, wet and windy conditions were undoubtedly a factor in Scotland's favour.
Yet, there is a confidence about the side this week that was missing a few months ago and even the radical change in playing conditions has not fazed them.
"It rained at the first training in Fiji, which was a shock to the system," said Alastair Kellock. "You get used to these conditions though, you always do.
"I played over in Romania in the
Nations cup and that was the hottest I have played in, but it was a
different type of heat, a dry heat.
"Give it a couple of days and we will
be fine. It will be different but it will be alright." The real challenge, he maintained, is to make sure that the tour does not end on a single win.
"It can't be a one-off," he said. "We have got to use the momentum from the win, we have said that already. It is Test rugby and each match is going to be different, especially given the contrast in conditions that we are experiencing.
"It is an absolute cliche but it is true: winning is a habit and we kind of got out of it in the last few months. Before that we were on a reasonable run and we have got to make sure that we get another win and take even more confidence into the Samoa match.
"The key to playing a team like Fiji is that you don't get carried away
by what they are doing.
"It is true that playing against any team, you
have to concentrate on yourself. We will have specific tactics on when to keep the ball tight but also we aim to show the attacking threat that unfortunately we did not get to see because of the weather conditions in
"We are looking to get those talented backs into the game as well. It is about finding our balance and not being influenced by what
they are doing." end
