Scotland Under-18 Training Squad At Murrayfield

Scotland Under-18 Training Squad At Murrayfield

Three new players have been added to the Scotland under-18 squad that will train this Sunday (8 November) at the national stadium. Lock Andrew Redmayne (Kilmarnock) and flanker Rory Sutherland (Hawick Wanderers) join wing Andrew Hall (Strathallan School) after the trio impressed in club and regional squad sessions. Absent from the squad of 36 this weekend, however, will be Adam de Ste Croix (Boroughmuir) who misses this session due to a hand injury while Stuart Hogg (Heriot’s), and Aidan McCall Hagan (West of Scotland) remain on the injured list.

In the lead-up to the seasonal camp, selectors will continue to attend club and school fixtures, along with regional sessions that will include a visit to Leeds to watch the Exiles under-18 squad going through their paces in early December. Scotland under-18 head coach, Grant McKelvey, said: We’re now looking forward to seeing the benefits and progressions from the extra contact time we have had with the players. We’re anticipating the decisions we’ll have to make leading to the final selection and look forward to increasing the intensity at which we work.” SCOTLAND UNDER-18 TRAINING SQUAD FOR 8 NOVEMBER 2009 FORWARDSPropsRobin Hislop (Hawick Wanderers) **Gavin Robertson (Earlston High School/Melrose Wasps)Alex Allan (Sedbergh School) Struan Cessford (High School of Dundee) Craig Davidson (Ayr)Jo Wasinski (Hampton School)HookersGeorge Turner (Stewart’s Melville College) Jack MacFarlane (Gourock High School / Glasgow Hawks) Ryan Hood (Strathallan School)Fergus Scott (Currie) 2nd rowsFraser Wem (Hampton School / London Wasps) George Barnes (Chesterfield RFC)Andrew Redmayne (Kilmarnock)Craig Ferguson (East Kilbride) Back rowJamie Swanson (Glasgow Academy)*Lawrie Seydak (Edinburgh Academy)Malcolm Peacock (George Watson’s College) Rory Sutherland (Hawick Wanderers)Mitchell Eadie (Filton College)Andrew Nagle (Jed Thistle) BACKSScrum halvesMurray McConnell (Lenzie Academy / West of Scotland)* Johnny Adams (Aberdeen Grammar School) Stand offsFraser Gillies (Edinburgh Academy) Finn Russell (Stirling County) CentresMark Bennett (Cumnock RFC) *Jack Bradford (Worksop College) Michael Crawley (Stewart’s Melville College) Jack Ferguson (George Watson’s College)Sam Knudson (Aberdeen Grammar School)Scott Shankie (East Kilbride)Jamie Urquart (Dollar Academy) Back 3Murray Beckwith (Marr College)*Harris Jones (Merchiston Castle School)* Ross Inglis (Calderside Academy / Hamilton)Doug Day (Paviours RFC)Andrew Hall (Strathallan School) Not considered due to injury Stuart Hogg (Heriot’s) **Aidan McCall Hagan (West of Scotland)Ben Johnstone (Stewart’s Melville College)Adam de Ste Croix (Boroughmuir)Tom Stevens (BATS)  * Member of National Academy supported by AIS (Area Institute of Sport)** Member of National Academy supported by Scottish Rugby Forthcoming Fixtures Scotland under-18 v France under-18     Sunday 14 March (venue and k/o tbc)Scotland under-18 v Wales under-18     Sunday 21 March (venue and k/o tbc)Leeds Select v Scotland under-18          Sunday 28 March (venue and k/o tbc)6N U18 Festival  Scotland under-18 v Italy under-18       Friday 2 AprilScotland under-18 v England under-18  Tuesday 6 AprilScotland under-18 v Ireland under-18   Saturday 10 April
