Chamberlain to start Scotland U20 Six Nations opener

Nathan Chamberlain will start at fly half in Scotland U20’s Six Nations opener against Ireland U20 at Independent Park, Cork, on Friday night (7.15pm KO).

The Academy back, who featured at last summer’s U20 World Cup, is named in Sean Lineen’s starting XV.

The Head Coach said: “It’s been a pretty tough selection, there’s a lot of guys who were here last year and they obviously have a point to prove. The team’s come together really well, they’re pretty tight and working really hard on different parts of their game.

“We know we will need to get our performance right against a pretty physical and clever Irish outfit who won this fixture last year away from home, so we know what type of cauldron we’re going into.

“We’ve prepared really well this week; I’ve been very impressed with their attitude and we’re going over there to give a really good performance.”
