HOOKER Jerry Blyth-Lafferty and winger Geordie Gwynn have returned home from Kenya after sustaining thumb and facial injuries respectively during Scotland Under-20s’ Junior World Trophy campaign opener against Zimbabwe last Saturday. They have been replaced by Archie Falconer and Kerr Johnston.

Scotland won that opening match of the campaign against Zimbabwe (64-33) and face the USA tomorrow, kicking-off at 12 noon. Their final pool match is against Uruguay next Thursday, and assuming all goes well then they will face either Spain, Samoa, Kenya or Hong Kong in the tournament final the following Sunday. Kenny Murray‘s side need to win the title in order to win promotion back into the top tier World Junior Championship next summer.
