The Scotland U18 team to face England U18 in the U18 International Series at the CCB Centre for Sporting Excellence, Ystrad Mynach, today (Sunday 16 April, kick-off 2.30pm) has been named. 

The fixture is the squad’s third and final in this year’s tournament, where Ally Donaldson’s troops have previously recorded a 22-6 loss to Wales U18 and a 28-22 victory over Italy U18. 

Speaking after Wednesday’s victory over Italy, Donaldson, said: “We produced a very satisfying performance against a strong and mature Italian team. The squad played some good attacking rugby and created a lot of chances and also defended well for long periods.”
