Chamberlain named in Scotland U20 squad for World Championship

Academy fly half, Nathan Chamberlain has been named in Carl Hogg’s Scotland U20 squad for the forthcoming World Rugby U20 Championship held in Argentina (June 4-22).

Chamberlain, who was named man of the match as Hartpury College retained their BUCS Super Rugby title at Twickenham last month, is included in the 28-man squad, consisting on 16 forwards and 12 backs.

"This year’s squad includes a good mix of youth and experience, with a large number of the group having performed together during the recent Six Nations campaign,” said Hogg.

“The squad made huge strides over the course of the Six Nations and eventually adapted to the pace and intensity of international age-grade rugby.

"We were at our best when we played with real speed, but also made intelligent decisions with and without the ball. The highlight was clearly the performance against Wales at Meggetland, which provides us with a real template for success.

“The squad made huge strides over the course of the Six Nations and eventually adapted to the pace and intensity of international age-grade rugby."

Carl Hogg, Scotland U20 head coach

“Preparations are going really well and we have a short camp at St Andrews University before heading out to Washington for a warm-up game against Old Glory DC.”

“We know how tough a task we face in next month’s tournament. We have been being drawn in group with the rugby powerhouses of South Africa and New Zealand, as well as a really strong Georgian outfit.

“Each of these teams will present very different challenges, but we believe we have the game plan and players capable of adapting to find a winning way.”

The age-grade side will complete their preparations for the Championship in Argentina with a week-long training camp in Washington DC, which will include a warm-up fixture against Old Glory DC on Memorial Day, May 27th.

Scotland U20 begin their World Rugby U20 Championship campaign against South Africa U20 at Rosario’s Racecourse Stadium on Tuesday, June 4th (kick-off 2.30pm BST) before facing New Zealand U20 at the same venue four days later (Saturday, June 8th, kick-off 7.30pm BST).

The age-grade side then play Georgia U20 in their final pool stage fixture at Rosario’s Racecourse Stadium (Wednesday 12 June, kick-off 2.30pm BST) with all three group matches streamed live on world.rugby/u20
