Youth players get chance to shine

AFTER hosting the Wallabies in the final Autumn Test last month, Scotland will again face an Australian side before the bells, this time at age-grade level.

And, similar to the senior side, four Borders players are within the squad.

Forwards Gary Robertson (Gala Academy/Gala Wanderers) and Ross Graham (Hawick) will join backs Richard Taylor (Melrose/Loretto School) and Ruari Howarth (Gala Academy/Gala Wanderers) in Stephen Gemmell’s mixed Under-18 and Under-20 squad to play an Australia Schools side, at Myreside in Edinburgh on Sunday.
