Scotland U20

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. 

Scotland under-20 enjoyed their most successful season to date in 2014/15 with their highest ever finish in the Six Nations and World Rugby Under-20 Championship.

Led by Head Coach Sean Lineen and assistants John Dalziel and Iain Monaghan, the team finished third in the 2015 Under-20 Six Nations Championship – after putting Wales, Italy and Ireland to the sword in the side’s three home ties – before claiming eighth spot in the World Rugby Under-20 Championship.
