Scotland U18 squad named ahead of the U18 Six Nations Festival
Scotland U18 Head Coach, Ross Miller, has named a 26-man squad to travel down to England for the U18 Six Nations Festival.
The squad will face Italy in their opening match this Saturday (13 April), before going up against Wales (Wednesday 17 April) and Ireland (Sunday 21 April).
The festival, which is being hosted by England Rugby at Hartpury University and College, will see three sets of fixtures at Gillman’s Ground, Sixways Stadium and Kingsholm.
Scotland U18 players Scott Clelland, Dan Gamble, Jamie Dobie and Matthew Currie have all been named in the squad – having featured in last year’s inaugural U18 Six Nations Festival which saw the Scots claim victory in their fixtures against England, France and Ireland.
Miller said: “Preparation has gone very well, the squad are in a good place and very much looking forward to the festival.
“The squad are excited to face new challenges and will be looking for further opportunity to progress their development.”
The U18 Six Nations Festival matches will be broadcast live on FreeSports.
