Scotland U19 team to face France U19 at Meggetland announced

The Scotland U19 team to play France U19 at Meggetland, Edinburgh this Saturday (14 April) has been announced. 

Saturday’s match will be the final instalment in the team’s three-game programme this season. In their first match against Scottish Students, Scotland U19 took the win, followed by a draw with Romania. 

Saturday’s match will be a real test against a big and physical French team.

Scotland U19 is strengthened by the selection of several players with U20s experience, including Callum McClelland, Rory McMichael, Marshall Sykes, Harry Butler and Murphy Walker – who has also represented Scotland U18 and U20 in recent months.

The game offers an opportunity for all of the players to stake a claim for a place in Scotland’s U20 squad for World Rugby U20 Championship 2018, which will take place in France from 30 May - 17 June.

Scotland U19 v France U19, 2pm, Saturday 14 April, Meggetland. Kick-off is 2pm and entry is free.
