SCOTLAND UNDER-20s will play their three home matches in this season’s Six Nations at Scotstoun Stadium, home of Glasgow Warriors, having been based at the DAM Health Stadium in Edinburgh last season.

Kenny Murray’s team will open their campaign away to England at Twickenham Stoop on Friday 3rd February (kick-off 7pm). They will play their first game at Scotstoun on Friday 10th February against Wales (7.15pm kick-off) before taking on France away on Friday 24th February (kick-off 8pm), followed by two more home games at Scotstoun against Ireland on Friday 10th March (kick-off 7:15pm) and Italy on Sunday 19th March (at 2pm).

“We’re delighted to be making Scotstoun our home for the 2023 Under-20 Six Nations campaign,” said head coach Murray. “It’s a quality ground and a fast surface which will make for three entertaining games against Wales, Ireland and Italy.

  1. Why Scoutstoun? Glasgow does not care for rugby in comparison to Edinburgh, especially youth rugby has been particularly poor from the clubs there.

    Bring it to the Burgh.
