Preview: Wales U20 v Scotland U20

Scotland U20 take on Wales U20 at Stadium ZipWorld tomorrow night in their second fixture of the 2022 Under-20 Six Nations.

What the coach said

Head Coach Kenny Murray said: There are a huge number of positives to take from last Friday night’s game against England. Our physicality was there, as was our passion and desire to get over the gain line and score some tries but ultimately the team didn’t perform for the full-80 minutes.

“Down in Wales we’ll be looking to stay in the fight, execute our plays more accurately and convert our chances into points when they come.

“If we do that, then I’m confident that the team can perform better than they did last week and get the result we want.”
