Kinghorn is playing nicely - ghosts past two defenders and throws the offload to Nairn but the Aussie just got in there to intercept.

Crosbie looking very good again - won't be long before we see him in black and red imo.

Nooooo MacDowell knocks on 10 metres out with 2 to go.

Eastgate should've gone for a DG.

I've been able to watch the last 5 minutes, so I can't say much.

But wow, this is outstanding. Incredible. Magnificent.
Fifth in the world at senior and junior level.

That was a brilliant result, even better than the win last year because this time there's no excuse of a red card, we beat them 15 against 15 and deservedly so.

Crosbie was immense, as was Eastgate. Nobody let the team town particularly, even with the scrum under the cosh, Renwick's striking was great and prevented that hurting us for the most part.

It's great seeing the talent spread across the team, guys like McCann and Crosbie (seriously he was great) who weren't the most hyped going in look ready for the pro-game already, the academies look to have succeeded even better than anyone could have hoped when we started them.

Really think Crosbie was one of the stars of the tournament for us, looks like a real find. Be interesting to see his progression as he has all the dog in the world and is the type of player you'd think Cockers will take a shine too.

Kinghorn is magnificent when he is confident and not having to think too much but frustrated today and in the tournament throwing a miss pass when not needed or slack kicking, hopefully doesn't have the expectations of a pro team on his shoulders.

I like Shiel, if he sorts out his consistency he will be a star as well, I don't think there is a 9 in Edinburgh with a pass as powerful as his and when it's accurate it's a weapon. Sadly it's four good passes one wobbler/bad decision and he really needs to clean that. If they still do loans with LS he would be a good candidate.

As Grant said, there is promise for Edinburgh's future in this -20 team: Crosbie, Kinghorn Graham and Hunter-Hill were great.
- Crosbie is surprisingly fast, works a lot in the rucks and can be a strong carrier. We can expect to see him develop well. When Fihaki/Mata will be gone, you can hope he'll be ready to fill the gap.
- Hunter-Hill is an outstanding leader, no doubt. Not the most impressive player, but as a captain he makes his team better.
- Kinghorn was one of the very best players of the tournament.
- Graham is a smart winger who I hope will fulfill all the expectations he has raised. I'm not sure will see that next year, maybe too soon, but a duo Hoyland/Graham will be tormenting defenders.
We can also keep an eye on some exiles who were great too: Eastgate, Dodd and Thornton especially.

Perhaps the academy system is bearing fruit. This was labelled a weak U20's squad but you could see the effort being expended in every game. Well done.

First part of (hopefully) four pieces for the Scottish Rugby Blog, reviewing the u20s Championship from a Scotland perspective. Starting off with whose stats stood out among the forwards:

Very good stats. Looks like a strong core of players for the future. However as the captain said on interview the next step is pro rugby. Good luck to those taking the next step.

And now it's the turn of the backs with Blair Kinghorn to the fore in attack and Stafford McDowall leading the defence:

Part 3 is a look forward - the players who will still be with the u20s next year and those who need to move up to the next level. Also a look at Scotland's hit rate with past u20s squads going pro and making it as full capped internationals:
