Under-18S Look To Take The Leeds


Following Sunday's (21 March) defeat by their Welsh counterparts, Scotland's under-18 side will be looking to up their game against a Leeds Academy side this weekend at West Park, Leeds (Sunday 28 March, kick-off 2pm ).

Scotland under-18 head coach, Grant McKelvey, said: "All 28 players have now experienced international rugby but this will be their first away fixture.

"We've played Academy sides before and we know it will be another big physical test against Leeds."

This fixture will be the last before the squad head to Wales for the international festival, taking on their counterparts from England, Italy and Ireland over eight days.
