Caledonia U18 claim FOSROC Academy Festival title
Caledonia won the U18 FOSROC Academy Festival with a 38-19 victory over Glasgow & the West.
Caledonia were in front throughout the final, which was played on the indoor pitch at Oriam.
The 3rd/4th place playoff match finished with the same scoreline, as Edinburgh secured a 38-19 win over Borders & East Lothian.
The U18 programme continues with two inter-city derby matches in early February, before Scotland U18 development camps later in the month.
Head of Pathways John Fletcher said: “We saw some great rugby on both sides of the ball from all four regional academy sides. My congratulations to Caledonia on their deserved win.
“It was great to see the sides focussing on our blueprint and playing in the style we’re looking to see in the pathway. Thanks also goes to all of the coaches who give up their time to support the players in our clubs and schools.
“We’re now looking forward to the U18 Glasgow Warriors v Edinburgh Rugby matches and seeing the continued development of these players as they work towards a spot in the Scotland U18 squad for the Six Nations Festival in Spring.”
