Preview: Scotland U20 v Hong Kong China U20

Scotland Men U20 take on Hong Kong China U20 at Hive Stadium, Edinburgh on Sunday 7 July in their second pool match of the 2024 World Rugby U20 Trophy (kick off 2.30pm) - live on BBC ALBA.

What they said:

Head Coach Kenny Murray said: “With the nature of this tournament and the short turnaround between matches, it is important that we are able to use the full squad and that everyone can step up.

“While we were delighted with our win on Tuesday, we know that we can still perform better as a team and Sunday gives us an opportunity to do that.

“Hong Kong China will provide us with another good test and give us an opportunity to play a team and style of rugby that we haven’t faced before, which is exciting for this group.”
