Scotland under-18 home-based players to take on Exiles

Scotland under-18s will continue their preparations for the 5 Nations tournament at the end of March, when the home-based players take on their Exile counterparts at Peffermill on Sunday (kick-off 1pm).The annual fixture will give Ally Donaldson and his assistant coaches the chance to take a closer look at the group of 44 players, before reducing it to a 26-man squad for a fixture against England in Stirling on Sunday 6 March. Included within the home-based squad is Matt Fagerson, brother of Zander, who has been included in the Scotland squad for the RBS 6 Nations, while former Scotland international Bryan Redpath's son, Cameron, is in the Scottish Exiles squad. Ally Donaldson said: "Sunday's game is an important part of our preparations for our upcoming fixture against England and the 5 Nations tournament. "It will give us a chance to look closely at the group of players who are available to us and help us select our final 26-man squad. "We've been working closely with the home-based players and the Exiles and are keen to see them in a comparative environment.Some players have been unlucky to have missed out on this selection, but could still force their way into our thoughts.Scotland U18 home-based squadFORWARDSRoss Dunbar* - Stirling County RFC / Linlithgow AcademyCalum Eastwood - George Watson's CollegeLewis Mclean* - Strathallan SchoolEuan McLaren - Dollar AcademyRobbie Smith* - Ayr RFC / Douglas Ewart High SchoolPaul Cairncross* - Kelvinside Academy / East Kilbride RFCJamie Hodgson - Stewart Melville CollegeDean Roger - Highland RFCAndrew Horne* - Preston Lodge RFCMatt Fagerson* - Strathallan SchoolCallum Cruikshank* - Dollar AcademyJack Bruce* - Strathallan SchoolRyan Sweeney  - The Glasgow Academy BACKSHarry Warr - Dollar AcademyFraser Peters - George Watson's CollegeGrant Hughes* - Dollar AcademyMark New* - Strathallan SchoolCameron Hutchison* - George Heriot's School / North Berwick RFCStafford MacDowell - Merchiston Castle SchoolBen Eynon* - Strathallan SchoolAaron Tait* - Merchiston Castle SchoolBen Appleson* - The Edinburgh Academy* BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy Stage 2 players 2015/16Scotland U18 Exiles squadFORWARDSWilliam Bowie - Bradford Grammar SchoolBobby Bratton - St Matthew AcademyAndrew Christie - Harrow / SaracensAlan Gregory - Kings, Ely / Northampton SaintsTyrone Heffron - IvybridgeRalph Johnston - Gosforth HS / Newcastle FalconsDaniel Marek - Richard Huish College / BathGregor Ramage - Brighton CollegeJack Samuel - Bedwas ComprehensiveBen Scoular - Warwick SchoolTavis Hunter - Oaklands CollegeBACKSDaniel Brady - St.Edwards OxfordFraser Dingwall - Bedford School / Northampton SaintsArthur Friend - Blundells SchoolCharlie Gowling - Sedburgh / Newcastle FalconsRory McMichael - Wellington College / HarlequinsTom Nicole - Cranleigh College / HarlequinsAlexander Nisbet - Bromsgrove School / Worcester WarriorsMarcus Ramage - Brighton CollegeCameron Redpath - Kings School, Macclesfield / SaleFraser Strachan - Bedford School / Northampton SaintsEric White - Hartpury College / Gloucester
