Academy prop joins Scots Under-18s

Leicester Tigers academy prop Alex Maxwell is included in the Scotland Under-18 squad ahead of Sunday’s match against England in Stirling.

The Scots were beaten 32-30 by Wales last weekend and face England in the final warm-up fixture before the Under-18s Six Nations festival in Wales at Easter.

Maxwell, a student at Brooksby Melton College, was part of the Tigers squad that won the Under-18 League Final against Gloucester last weekend and could face clubmates Cameron Jordan and George Martin who have been selected in the England Under-18s squad.

Scotland Under-18 head coach Iain Monaghan said: “This weekend we’ll be working hard on what we learnt in the narrow defeat to Wales and looking to build on that performance.

“The more players we can look at the better, so we can take a strong group to the Under-18 Six Nations tournament at the end of the month.

“Playing England is always a big challenge and the games are physical and fast. These are the games you want to play in and these boys really strive in a competitive environment.”
