Scotland U19 Win With Big Help From Exiles
SCOTLAND Under-19s defeated Italy playing ambitious, attacking rugby and running in eight tries. Colin Robertson, who has worked with the Exiles u19 squad, said that The first-half performance was as good as I’ve seen from a Scotland age-grade team”. The team included five Exiles in the starting line up including Alex Black the team vice captain. There was potentially a sixth if Ross Sutherland from Sandbach, who is now at University in Edinburgh is counted; Ross played for the Exiles at U17 and U18 levels. The Exiles got in on the try scoring too, with lock Aaron Hall and prop Andrew Fraser both getting on the act. Exiles in the starting line up: A Black (Leeds Carnegie) vice captain, A Kent (London Wasps), A Fraser (Leeds Carnegie), A Hall (Berwick and Newcastle Falcons), C Stidson-Nott (London Wasps); R Sutherland (Murrayfield Wanderers) was amongst the replacements used on the day.
