Scotland under-18 head coach, Eddie Pollock has made two changes to the squad that held Wales to a draw until the visitors crossed the line in the closing minute last Sunday at Braidholm.
From scottishrugby.org: Scotland’s rugby clubs have voted overwhelmingly in favour of proposals for a radical reshape of the domestic league programme which will shorten the season, reduce travel costs, help clubs to grow the game and retain players.
The scoreline above does not really do justice to what was a vastly improved performance by the Scotland team who could quite possibly (but not easily) have won this game. In the end, England’s wings showed a little more confidence on the ball than the players inside – who handed over a glut of possession to Scotland (some of which was handed straight back) – and finished a couple of simple tries to put the gloss on the score.
The Scotland under-20s have already left for their World Cup in Italy. In their ranks they have Duncan Weir, Mark Bennett and Stuart Hogg. They also, it must be said, go with mixed expectations.
