SCOTLAND UNDER-18S head coach Ross Miller has named the side which will kick-off their age-grade Six Nations Festival campaign against Ireland in Dublin tomorrow afternoon (kick off 3.15pm).

“We’re really excited for the first challenge of our Six Nations Festival and it will be great for the squad to get more experience of international rugby,” said Miller.

“Ireland will present us with a real challenge but for us it’s about putting in a good performance and continuing to develop as a group.

“The squad have settled into camp nicely, preparations have gone well this week and we’re now looking to transition our focuses from training into Saturday’s performance.”
