Preview: Italy U20 V Scotland U20

Scotland U20 are back in action tomorrow night as they travel to Treviso to face Italy U20 at Stadio Comunale Monigo in the penultimate round of the U20 Six Nations. Kick off is at 7.15pm GMT, and you can watch the action live on BBC iPlayer.

What they said

Head coach Kenny Murray said: “The team have had a good fallow week and are ready to get stuck in again for our final two Six Nations matches.

“Again, we had a strong second half performance against England, but didn’t manage to start strong like we set out to do.

“Italy’s recent win against France highlights how strong they are at U20 level and they will be looking to build on that win in front of a passionate home crowd. It’s important that we cut out the unforced errors this week”.
