Scottish Futures

About the Programmes

Launched in 2018, Scottish Futures U18 is a performance player development programme with a focus on rugby skills, game understanding and behaviours needed to succeed in a high-performance rugby environment.

Scottish Futures U20 gives players the opportunity to test their skills, game understanding and behaviours in a competitive environment.
