Scotland U20's face Wales U20's at the Broadwood Stadium on Friday in Round 3 of the 2017 6-Nations, still seeking their first win in the current campaign. A single point loss at home to Ireland in their opening game, was followed by a heavy 8-36 reverse in Grenoble against France, a side that they have never beaten at U20 level, to leave the Scotland Under 20s at the foot of the table with a solitary losing bonus point. While they are level with Italy on one point, they have a worst overall points difference at present.

The loss in the Alps, was Scotland's fourth straight defeat in the 6-Nations tournament. To avoid a fifth consecutive loss, they will have to record just a fourth ever victory away from home in the 6-Nations. All three of the wins they have registered on the road, have come in Italy, in 2010, 2012 and 2016. Prior to the defeat by England in Round 2, Wales Under 20s had enjoyed a run of eight successive wins in the Six Nations tournament, and had hoped to break England's competition record of 10 in a row, which was set between 2010 and 2012. Having won the Grand Slam in 2016, Wales are not entirely out of the running for back to back titles, as they claimed a 27-5 win in Italy in Round 1. However, they need a victory in Scotland on Friday at the very least if they are to retain hopes of defending their Championship for another round of fixtures at least.

Scotland U20s found the going tough last weekend against the defending Six Nations Champions France last weekend in the opening round of this seasons tournament, going down by 6-47, with just two penalties kicked by George Home to their credit. On Friday they entertain a Wales Under 20s side at Netherdale Stadium, who began their title challenge with a victory over the reigning Junior World Champions England by 21-15 at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

The Scotland Under 20s struggled from the outset to get to grips with a French side packed with players with Top 14 experience, and who had been training as a group for one week each month since last August. Head coach Sean Lineen has remained positive despite the disappointing result, adamant that his young charges will improve as a result of the experience. Wales make two changes to the side that defeated England, with Owen Watkins the Ospreys centre coming into partner Garyn Smith in the centre, with Barney Nightingale moved wider to the wing. The other change to the run on XV sees another Osprey, Adam Beard brought into the second row, to replace skipper Rory Thornton who has been selected to play for his region in the PRO12 against Edinburgh on the same evening.
