The Scotland under-20 programme is the pinnacle of the country’s age-grade system and has helped develop some of its greatest talents and project them on to the international stage to don the thistle emblazoned, dark blue shirt of Scotland.
Each year the squad competes in the under-20 Six Nations, which runs in alignment with the senior tournament, and the World Rugby Under-20 Championship.
Led by Head Coach John Dalziel and assistants Ben Fisher and Iain Monaghan, Scotland under-20 finished fourth in the 2016 Six Nations tournament, recording two victories over England and Italy, in five games.
In Summer, the squad will reconvene for the World Rugby Under-20 Championship in Manchester, England. Scotland will face Australia, England and Italy in the tournament’s Pool B.
