Free tickets now available to see tomorrow’s top talent

Free ticket registraion is now open to see the best of the East and West of Scotland go head-to-head at Oriam.


The fixtures, which lead to international age-grade selection for the 2017/18 season, will see the top performers from the four BT Sport Academy Regions of the Borders & East Lothian and Edinburgh (representing East), and Caledonia and Glasgow & the West (representing West) selected in combined sides for the matches in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

The games are the next stage of the recent 20-match regional series and provide further, intensified competition for potential young Scotland players ahead of their respective international age-grade selection.

The U16 and U18 matches at Kings Park Aberdeen and Inverleith Park, Edinburgh (Sunday 15 and 22 October respectively) sandwich a new U19 tournament, which has adapted the laws of the 15-a-side game to challenge players’ speed and skills under pressure.

The six-game tournament will follow a similar schedule to a single-day sevens event on the indoor pitch at Oriam on Wednesday 18 October and will feature several new law adaptations to promote high-tempo, dynamic rugby.

Oriam will then host the one-off match at U20 level on Sunday 26 November (kick-off 5pm).
