Scotland U20 team to face Ireland

Duncan Munn continues at outside centre, co-captaining the Scotland squad
Five of Glasgow's FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy contingent have been named in the Scotland U20 squad that will take on Ireland at Scotstoun on Friday night (ko 7.15pm).

The Scots will be looking to replicate their performance from their most recent run-out at Scotstoun, a display that saw them earn a 18-17 win over Wales.

Harris McLeod starts in the second-row for Murray's men, the Stirling Wolves man having crossed the whitewash in the opening match of the championship against England at the Twickenham Stoop.

Finlay Burgess retains the scrum-half shirt, impressing in his 78 minutes on the field against France in round three.

Duncan Munn once again co-captains the side from outside centre, the Loch Lomond RFC product having made 32 tackles across his three appearances to date.

Logan Jarvie comes into the starting XV for the first time this campaign, the winger joining Stirling Wolves team-mates McLeod and Burgess in the lineup.

Ben Salmon completes the Glasgow contingent, the Hillfoots man having completed his recovery from injury to take his place in the matchday 23 for the first time in the championship.

Away from the Glasgow Warriors academy set-up, the west of Scotland is well represented once more in Kenny Murray's selection; Glasgow Hawks contribute four players in the form of Moby Ogunlaja, Kerr Yule, Ruaraidh Hart and Andy McLean, with GHA number eight Jonny Morris also included in the matchday squad.
