Scotland name U19 side for Georgia U20 side

Scotland U19 face Georgia U20 at Meggetland at 15.00 today, ahead of the two senior sides meeting on Saturday.


A number of players based south of the border have been selected, with Cardiff Metropolitan’s Jack Samuel and Bishop Burton College’s George Thorton both covering the front row on the bench. Northumbria University’s George Bordill covers the second row, with Worcester Warriors’ Tom Dodd covering the back row.


Covering the backline are Newcastle Falcons’ scrum half Ruaridh Dawson, Wasps fly half Connor Eastgate, and Ipswich School’s Will Brown.


Speaking to Scotland’s Head of International Age-Grade, Sean Lineen, said:


“We’re delighted to be able to host a strong and experienced Georgia U20 outfit as part of our age-grade development programme. This match provides the chance for players – all who are vying for a spot in the Scotland U20 squad this season or next – to show they can be competitive on the international stage.”


“Games like this are vital for player development and we’re looking forward to what promises to be an exciting match. The vast majority of our squad are part of the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy, and we want to see them making the best use of their training in that high-performance environment and making the transition to perform at international age-grade level.”


“This is a huge opportunity for those involved to prove their worth and really stake a claim for the privilege of further honours in a Scotland shirt.”
