Men’s U18 squad announced for Six Nations Festival
Head Coach Ross Miller has named his squad for the Men’s U18 Six Nations Festival in Dublin.
A squad of 26 players, consisting of 14 forwards and 12 backs, will travel to Ireland to play three fixtures in the festival.
Scotland get their tournament underway against Ireland on Saturday (kick off 3.15pm), before taking on France on Wednesday and Wales on Sunday 16 April.
The fixtures will all be streamed live by Six Nations.
Scotland U18 were last in action last month when they travelled down to Swansea to take on Wales U18.
Ross said: “We’re really looking forward to the six nations festival in Dublin , it will be a great experience and how the players respond to the new challenges ahead will be key.
“We have trained well since our match with Wales, and this festival gives them the opportunity to develop further.
“The squad have come together well over the training programme and have a good work ethic, they are really excited around stretching themselves further during the festival.”
The Women’s U18 squad will also be in action as the U18 Women Six Nations Festival kicks off at Wellington College on Friday.
