Currie lead the way with four players in the Scotland squad for the forthcoming World Rugby under-20 Championship in Georgia which runs from May 31 to June 18.

The 28-man squad named by Head Coach John Dalziel consists of 16 forwards and 12 backs.

As well as Currie, eight other Scottish clubs are represented a well as Gloucester, Worcester Warriors, Newcastle Falcons, Bishop Burton College, Wasps and Harlequins.

Dalziel said: “We’ve picked a well-rounded squad, which has grown together through their experience of the recent 6 Nations.

“The team showed that they are capable of producing some very good rugby but need to be more consistent. Finding that 80 minute performance will be key to our overall showing in the World Championship.

“Selection is only the start for these players, and we have a lot of work to do between now and the competition. In order to get the most out of the tournament, we need full commitment from everyone given the opportunity to don the shirt.”
