Four selected in U20 training squad

Scotland U20 Head Coach Sean Lineen has named four Edinburgh Rugby academy prospects in his 41-man Six Nations training squad.

Hooker Patrick Harrison, prop Cole Lamberton, stand-off Cameron Scott and centre Scott King are all named in the training squad, with the group set to assemble for two camps at the Oriam later this month.

The group will work towards final selection for the rescheduled U20 Six Nations Championship due to start on Saturday 19 June, with the venue and fixtures to be confirmed.

Harrison, 18, made headlines last month when he made his Edinburgh Rugby debut from the bench against Dragons, becoming the youngest front-rower, and fourth youngest debutant in club history.

Scotland U20 Head Coach, Sean Lineen said: “Although the players have been working hard on their own strength and conditioning, these camps will provide an important opportunity for us to work on rugby team skills with the players in an organised setting which will be valuable as they work towards the Six Nations Championship at the end of June.

“It’s great to have the Contracted Academy players available to us for these camps, they will bring a wealth of knowledge to the playing group from the professional team environment.

"Two of those players Max Williamson and Alex Samuel were invited to train with the Scotland national team over the Guinness Six Nations, those players have experienced the next step up and the level of intensity that we will expect them to bring to these camps.”
