Scotland v Wales Under 16 starring cameron furley

A six day rugby festival.

Thursday 6 - Wednesday 12 April 2017

Parc Eirias, Colywn Bay, Wales.

Scotland Blues v Wales RGC

The philosophy of the festival is to develop the individual and team performance, with the players being assessed not only at this festival but at all of their previous training camps.

Bryan Easson, Head Coach of the Scotland U16 Reds, cited the importance of challenging these players and placing them in a high-performance environment.

He said: “We’re very excited about this group of players."

“They have worked hard on and off the field to prepare for this festival and know it is a huge privilege to represent Scotland at this level.”

Steve Lawrie, Head Coach of the Scotland U16 Blues, added: “The players have stepped up their work ethic and have shown a professional attitude during our recent training camps."

“Selecting 50 players at this stage highlights the abundance of talent we have in Scotland and that the future of Scottish rugby is in safe hands.”

Scotland U16 Blues dominated the first-half and scored three tries through Andrew Hughes, Brandon Mills and Callum Brown.

The young Scots continued to hold possession in the second-half and in the 45th minute replacement Colin Taylor scored his team’s fourth try, with McIlwraith adding the extras.

Scrum-half Finn McIlwraith secured two from three conversions to give his side the lead at the interval

Tries followed from Rory Jackson and Nick McAllister – both converted by Adam Scott – before RGC muscled their way over the whitewash.

We're winning easily, but it's still worth doing a highland fling war dance to scare the opposition!

However, the visitors weren’t finished yet and front-row replacement Scott Clelland touched down the last try of the match, which Scott converted to cement their win.

Scotland 47 : Wales 5

Scotland U16 Blues Head Coach, Steve Lawrie, said: “I’m extremely proud of the boys’ effort this week. They were determined to rectify Saturday’s mistakes, which cost them their win against Dragons and they did exactly that and more by defeating RGC by 42 points.”
