Four Scotland under-20 players made it into the Opta Team of the Tournament for the 6 Nations.

The young Scots won their last match against Italy last Friday at Broadwood Stadium to give them their first victory of 2017.

The team are now building up to the Junior World Championships in May and June in Georgia with a spring in their step.

Opta Team of the Tournament

The OPTA team published on the @OptaJonny Twitter feed – the official Twitter page for Opta’s coverage of rugby union and rugby league – took into account video analysis of every match played in the tournament.

The players were then all awarded points depending on their actions during each match.

The four Scotland players in the XV are Hawick full-back Darcy Graham, Heriot’s scrum-half Andrew Simmers, Glasgow Hawks’ back-row Bruce Flockhart and Hawick hooker Fraser Renwick.

Zach Mercer, who used to play for Scotland until under-16 level, skippered England to a 6 Nations under-20s title and was named Opta Player of the Tournament.
