Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Scotland U18, accompanied by Saints' Academy player Marshall Sykes, claimed a 28-22 victory over Italy U18 in the U18 International Series at Parc y Scarlets on Wednesday afternoon to record their first win of the tournament. 

The Scots bagged two tries before half-time to go in at the break ahead by four points before impressing in the second-half to see out a physical Italian side.

Italy managed to respond in the dying moments with a converted try before Scotland hung on to see out victory in an entertaining match between the two sides.

The squad will now prepare for their final match of the U18 International Series against England U18 and his Academy teammate Fraser Dingwall on Sunday (kick-off 2.30pm).
