Ben Vellacott helps Scotland beat Wales in European Under-18 Championship
Barnstaple scrum half Ben Vellacott helped Scotland make a winning start to rugby's European Under-18 Championship in France.
After trailing 17-3 to Wales in Moirans yesterday, Scotland fought back to win 18-17.
They will now meet in the semi-finals of the tournament on Tuesday.
Vellacott, the 17-year-old from Mortehoe, was sent on from the bench to replace starting scrum half Luke Earle-Wright after 35 minutes of the match against Wales, when Scotland were 12-3 down.
