Scotland U20s name team to face Wales U20s at Scotstoun

Scotland U20 Head Coach Kenny Murray has made four changes to his starting line-up for this Friday’s Under-20 Six Nations game against Wales at Scotstoun Stadium, Glasgow (kick-off 7.15pm – live on BBC iPlayer).


Most of the changes come for the forward pack including Craig Davidson, who will make his Scotland U20 debut at loosehead prop in place of Max Surry who is unavailable due to injury. Davidson will be joined by powerhouse pairing Corey Tait at hooker and Callum Norrie at tighthead to complete the front row.

Jake Parkinson makes a return to the second row, this time joined by Ruaraidh Hart who earns a starting position this week after his impressive shift off the bench last weekend at the Stoop. Hart replaces Harris McLeod whose injury from last week’s game makes him unavailable to play at Scotstoun.

The back-row remains mostly unchanged apart from Sam Derrick who will make his first Scotland U20 start at Number 8. He will play alongside co-captain Liam McConnell (Boroughmuir Bears and Edinburgh Rugby) at blindside flanker and one of last week’s try-scorers Rudi Brown on the openside.
