Well, I don't know about the number of matches or the timing, but I'm pretty sure that the first 4 matches are slotted in our schedule in Ireland and Scotland to boost our players' confidence.

It is said on a number of occassions that since we play a lot of stronger opponents, with whom we are unable to compete at most times, the confidence of our players are almost nil.

So, those practice matches in Scotland/Ireland are there so that we can compete with our similar standard of teams and thus get a chance to boost our players' confidence.

However, getting injured or fatigue are the side-effects that we have to bear with.
