Scotland U20 to play at both Broadwood and Myreside
Scotland U20 will play their 2018 Six Nations home games at two different locations following the highly anticipated release of the tournament’s fixtures.
The age-grade side will split their matches between the west and east, playing at Cumbernauld’s Broadwood Stadium against France on Friday 9 February (kick-off 7.45pm), before facing England at the home of Edinburgh Rugby, Myreside, a fortnight later on Friday 23 February (kick-off 7.30pm).
Scotland face three away fixtures in next year’s tournament.
In round one, the age-grade outfit will travel to Colwyn Bay’s Parc Eirias to face Wales on Friday 2 February (kick-off 8.15pm), before hosting France and England.
On Friday 9 March Scotland travel to Dublin to take on Ireland at Donnybrook (kick-off 7.15pm) and then finish the campaign in Italy, with the match against the Azzuri taking place at Bari’s Stadio della Vittoria on Friday 16 March (kick-off 3pm GMT).
On the upcoming fixtures, Head of National Age Grade Sean Lineen said: “We're really looking forward to working with this group of talented youngsters, to build on the success of the last few years.
We’ve got an incredible amount of young, gifted rugby players plying their trade up and down the country, so to have them in one group over the course of the Six Nations campaign will be really special.”
