Saturday 24 February – The Clan V Heriot’s XV

Posted on

Before showing the Scotland V England game on the big screens, we will be hosting a game against the The Clan at Goldenacre KO 14:30.

The Clan is one of two teams that Trust Rugby International (TRI) set up and is officially Scotland’s first registered unified rugby club, having been made an associate member of Scottish Rugby in May 2013. Unified rugby is a version of the full contact game that brings together those with learning disabilities and non-disabled players in the same team, promoting equality, diversity and social inclusion through participation in the game.

TRI’s aim is to improve health and well-being by increasing physical activity and improving access to sports for people with learning disabilities. This is accomplished by working to overcome the barriers that prevent people from accessing and benefiting from quality coaching and sustainable personal development.

OJ will be coaching the Heriot’s XV, which will see a mixture of 1st, 2nd and 3rd XV players. We also welcome the return of former captain and record points scorer, Graham Wilson.

Everyone welcome to come down and enjoy some live rugby before the big game in the clubhouse.
