Scotland U20

Sean Lineen will take charge of Scotland under-20 for the 2014/15 season, assisted by John Dalziel and Iain Monaghan.

Players will participate in a number of camps throughout the season to stake their claim for selection and the opportunity, and honour, of pulling on the dark blue of Scotland to compete against other nations at age-grade level.

Scotland under-20 finished third – their highest Championship placing to date – in the 2015 under-20 Six Nations, with a record of three wins and two losses.

The squad bounced back from a heavy defeat in their opening game of the Championship against France to record two consecutive home victories against Wales and Italy.

Despite a fantastic second half in Darlington, Scotland were unable to topple eventual Champions England, on their home patch, yet reversed their fortunes, to complete a home clean sweep, with a victory over Ireland in the final game of the tournament.

Watch highlights and interviews from Scotland under-20’s victories over Italy and Ireland.
