A SQUAD of 31 Scotland Under-18 players has been named for a training camp in Cardiff next week, which will culminate with a series of 30-minutes matches (no intervals) on Friday 11th August at Cardiff Arms Park, against Italy (at 10am), Wales (at 1pm) and Ireland (at 1.50pm). Entry to the games will be free.

“This development camp will give the majority of the squad a first exposure to international rugby at this age grade,” said Scotland Under-18s head coach Ross Miller.

“We will have double sessions throughout the week which will replicate a full time environment, and it will be great to train with the other nations and experience other playing styles.

“Playing against some international opposition gives the players the chance to practice what we’ll work on in training in an intense game environment, which is invaluable. The coaches are looking forward to working with this group and putting them through their paces.”
