HERIOT'S SUPER6

19 - 12

SOUTHERN KNIGHTS

Heriot’s Rugby Super6 team is one of six franchises competing in the new top tier domestic rugby competition that began in November 2019.

Built from members of the Heriot’s 1st XV and strong new recruits, the team will challenge for the inaugural title, while providing opportunities for part-time professional players.

Club Head Coach Phil Smith will continue to lead the coaching team, including Forward Coach Fin Gillies and Strength and Conditioning Coach Jordan Welsh, until February when Andrew Kelly joins the club as Heriot’s Rugby Super6 Head Coach.
