Scotland under-18 Head Coach Ally Donaldson believes his players have improved and had a “massive education” during the International Series in Wales in recent days.

The age-grade side lost to Wales and then defeated Italy before finishing the campaign with a 45-24 loss to England on Sunday.

After the England match, Donaldson said: “The result didn’t reflect how close the match was, as it was a performance full of effort and skill from Scotland.

“We were 19-19 with 16 minutes to go and camped on England’s line when we gave away a penalty which they tapped and run the length. It knocked the wind out our sails but it shouldn’t detract from our performance.

“Overall, it has been a a very satisfying campaign for our boys, which showed improvement in each game and provided a massive education all round.”
