Preview: Ireland U20 V Scotland U20

Scotland U20 conclude their 2024 Under-20 Six Nations campaign tomorrow night when they travel to Cork to face Ireland U20 at Virgin Media Park. Kick off is at 7pm GMT and the game is available to watch live on BBC iPlayer.

What they said

Head coach Kenny Murray said:

“Being up at half time against Italy proved that we can compete against these teams, but we must give a full 80-minute performance.”

“The small errors we made against them cost us and that’s the reality of international rugby.

“We know Ireland are going to be even tougher this weekend. They are playing to win the title in front of a home crowd, so will pull out all the stops”.
