The squad has been picked following the KNT camp in April, Pathways Development Games in August and also watching some school and club games over the first part of the season. The players will attend two training sessions and then a trial match before the final squad of 23 players are selected to play in the National Selection Fixture against the Borders on the 7th March. There will be a further ‘pro alignment’ fixture on the 14th March where combined sides made up from Edinburgh and Borders will play as ‘Edinburgh Rugby’ against the ‘Glasgow Warriors’ which will be made up of players form Glasgow and Caledonia regions. These two rounds of games will act as National Selection Fixtures to help select the Scotland under 16 Development Squad to prepare and then play in the international Wellington Festival at the end of March 2012.
