5 familiar names to looks out for during the U20 Six Nations

#5. Christian Townsend, son of Gregor (Scotland U20)

Townsend and Redpath junior both play in the same positions their fathers did, stand-off and scrum-half respectively, thus creating the intriguing possibility of their forming a halfback partnership as their dads did so successfully in the mid-1990s and early 2000s.

During the 2019-20 season Townsend impressed with his game management as he helped Stewart’s Melville College win the Scottish Schools Cup final at under-18 level, played for Melrose’s senior first XV and trained with the Scotland under-18s.

Dad Gregor, the Scotland head coach, wton 82 full caps between 1993 and 2003 and also represented the British & Irish Lions during their Test series win over South Africa in 1997.
