Alongside match commentary and the expansive five-camera feed from the current home of Glasgow Warriors, there will be post-match interviews following the eagerly anticipated head-to-head.
Peter Wright, Scotland under-20 head coach said; “When the Auld Enemy head north it’s always a wee bit special and it will be great for the boys to get this kind of coverage for a real big-match atmosphere.
“We are hoping for a good crowd at Firhill to roar on the team but it will be great that no-one will have to miss out on what should be a cracking match.”
Wright can call upon the experience of four players in his starting XV who have played at this level before: Harry Leonard, Alex Allan, Mitch Eadie and captain, Robin Hislop.
Another notable inclusion in the Scotland under-20 side will be Jonny Gray, younger brother of star second row, Richie.
Entry to the game at Firhill is FREE, as it is with ALL age-grade representative fixtures.
