Part 3 on this season's U20s. What lies ahead for the young Scots including a look at the previous squads' stats for progression to the top tier of pro rugby (43% so far) and Test caps (20% so far):

Part 4 and it's time to pick 4 players to follow from the U20s' adventures at the World Rugby Championship this summer. Who looks a likely prospect to break through to the pro game - and even full Scotland honours?

Little surprised that Cammy Hutchison doesn't make the list, looks like an excellently rounded player and probably our best in the tournament, but admittedly has a lot of competition in the centre to deal with to establish himself.

There will definitely be more than 4 who make it to pro level and Hutchison looks more than able. McLelland and Trotter were both very good and the positions they play make it more likely they'll get an early opportunity to step up.

We've already seen Tom Galbraith look good at U20 level but not quite make that breakthrough, in part because the centre position is so congested. Paddy Kelly at Glasgow could be the same although it looks like he's going to get another season to try and crack the pro game.
