Culloden Academy from Inverness took in the game as part of their three-game Canadian rugby tour and not only did they witness a thrilling game, the pupils were invited trackside to meet the entire Scotland _x0018_A' squad straight after the victory.

Stephen Dowds, head master of Culloden Academy, said: "It was absolutely brilliant to get the opportunity to come and watch Scotland during the tour and the icing on the cake for the boys was the chance to meet some of their heroes and wish them the best of luck for the final."

Having already hosted Adam Scott High School twice in Scotland, Culloden had the pleasure of facing them in the Canadian sunshine - Culloden recording a tight 7-5 win.

Next on the tour itinerary, the school play La Salle Secondary School in Kingston before travelling to Stoney Creek to play Saltfleet District High School next week.
