Preview: Scotland U20 v Samoa U20

Scotland U20 begin their World Rugby U20 Trophy campaign at Hive Stadium tomorrow against Samoa U20 (kick off 5.15pm) - live on BBC ALBA.

What they said:

Head Coach Kenny Murray said: “We are looking forward to kick starting the World Rugby U20 Trophy campaign.

“The boys have been training hard over the past few months and just want to get out there and do themselves, their families and Scotland proud.

“Samoa are up first and we know that they will be a tough opponent. We had a good result against them last year, but this is a completely different competition, so we must make sure we are at the top of our game when we come up against them on Tuesday.”
