Wales 17

Scotland 52

SCOTLAND Under 20s recorded their biggest ever Six Nations win - with only family members able to enjoy the thumping victory live.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak the fifth round match was played in front of small, invite-only, crowd at Colwyn Bay.

But the lack of atmosphere didn't deter the Scots from producing a hugely impressive display.

Hooker Ewan Ashman played a bold move putting the ball right out the back of the line-out.

And it was taken by Rufus McLean who weaved his way through the Welsh players and over the try line.

Nathan Chamberlain added the extras to give Scotland a 7-0 lead.

A Chamberlain penalty extended the advantage.

And the young Scots continued to pile on the pressure with a Chamberlain try from a line-out.

The conversion made it 17-0 to the visitors at half time.

Wales came back strong in the second half and just a few minutes in, Morgan Strong crashed over the line.

But Scotland were soon on top once more.

Cameron Henderson made solid ground before off-loading to Connor Boyle who powered over the line. Chamberlain added the extras.

A fine-passing move led to Bradley Roderick carrying the ball over the whitewash to keep the hosts in contention.

But an impressive solo try from Chamberlain, which he converted, took Scotland into a 31-10 lead.

Again, the hosts responded quickly.

A kick from Luke Scully and hooker Booth showed some pace to gather the ball and dive over the line.

As the match headed towards the final ten minutes, Jack Blain evaded two defenders before passing to Chamberlain.

The stand-off put in an incredible effort to seal his hat-trick. Another successful conversion made it 38-17.

There was still time for Ollie Smith to dive over.

And in the final minutes Robbie McCallum intercepted to sprint to the try line and take Scotland to the half century.

Head coach Sean Lineen said: "We knew that this last game was going to be a big one.

"We prepared pretty well all week.

"The pitch suited us nicely and the boys played some really good rugby.

“This group of players have been together for a few years now.

"They had a good U18 championship a couple of years ago and they have been pretty competitive in all of the Six Nations matches.”
