Three former pupils from Strathallan will take on Scotland's oldest rivals in the Guinness Six Nations Cup 2020.

Forwards Jamie Ritchie and Zander Fagerson will start for their country, while fellow former pupil George Horne will be ready and waiting on the bench.

Zander, who represented Scotland in the U16 and U18 squads, whilst at Strathallan, said it was thanks mentors like the school's Director of Rugby, Andrew Henderson, that he is where he is today.

He said, "I wouldn’t be a rugby player today if it wasn’t for the help I received from the staff at Strathallan School and the guidance, facilities and high-quality sport I played there. Period."

Last year more than 60 Strathallan students represented Team GB and Team Scotland in sport. The school offers scholarships to talented candidates in sport as well as music, art, piping, academic and performing arts. Find out more about available scholarships here.
