Looking ahead to the game, Scotland U20 head coach, Colin Robertson, said: â€œWe have one game before we play France in our first game of the 2008 U20 Six Nations, and this is it. So for us, it is an important exercise.
â€It will be good to see how our boys react to such a tough game against a team made up of professional players and how they deal with such an intense 80 minutes of rugby.â€
Scotland U20 team manager, John Jeffrey, added: â€œWeâ€™re looking forward to a really hard contest against the Glasgow back-up squad in our build-up to the U20 Six Nations.
â€œItâ€™s giving us a chance to mix the home-based boys with some of the exiles who performed well in our match against them in October.â€
