Scotland U16

Scotland U16

The Scotland U16 programme is a pivotal stage in the development of young players, with the selected home based players being split into two teams – the Reds and the Blues, and Scottish Qualified players who are residing and playing outside Scotland forming the Greens squad.

The Scotland U16 teams participated in the Regional Age-Grade Combined tournament in April which was held at locations across Wales. The Scots played fixtures against several Welsh teams including the Ospreys, Scarlets, Dragons, Blues and RGC.

The philosophy behind the festival is to enable players to develop their individual and team performance.

Following the festival, a home based squad will be selected to travel to a two-week summer training camp in Valladolid in Spain.
