DON CASKIE has named his Scotland Under-19 side to take on Scotland Under-18 at Inverleith in Edinburgh on Sunday (kick-off 2pm). There has been nine personnel changes and one positional switch, following the 24-7 defeat to Scottish Students last month.
Patrick Anderson, Ben Enyon, Robbie Yourston, Jack Paterson, Kaleem Baretto, Shaun Gunn, Bradley Clements, Callum Eastwood and Ryan Sweeney all come into the starting XV, while Dan Marek moves from blind-side flanker to Number 8.
“We’re looking forward to testing ourselves against Scotland U-18 on Sunday. Despite the defeat, we took a lot of positives from our game with Scottish Students last month and we’re looking to build on those positives this weekend,” said head coach Caskie.
“These games are important for the development of our squad. The players have another opportunity to put their hands up to be involved in future Scotland U20 squads.”
Entry for the match is free.
