The inaugural Bell Lawrie White Scottish Schools Under-15 Rugby Cup tournament has been hit by a spate of withdrawals. No fewer than 11 schools - 10 from the state sector - have dropped out since the initial draw. However, the competition is still strong with about 50 teams remaining.

It was organised after the success of the senior cup, which has encouraged more state schools to take up competitive rugby.

Dollar Academy opened its defence of the Senior Cup with a convincing 41-7 win at Glasgow Academy, after receiving a bye to the third round.
