A Scotland under-16 squad of 26 players has been selected following a trial at Lochinch in Glasgow on Sunday 16 March.

Two training camps have been held at Tulliallan Police College in Fife and the squad won 40-3 against a Newcastle Falcons under-16 team on Sunday 30 March at Murrayfield.

Tries from Ross McCann, Gregor Paxton, George Blackwell and a double from Charlie Lonergan, along with conversions from Ewan Fox and Gregor Haldane secured the win.
