SMC U16 Rugby Team Win Scottish Schools' Shield

Posted on 14th Dec 2018 in Sport, Stewart's Melville College

Congratulations to the Stewart’s Melville College Rugby U16A team, who have won the Schools’ U16 Shield at BT Murrayfield after defeating Earlston High School 41-0.

The boys showed a great deal of resilience throughout the tournament, after exiting the Scottish Schools' Cup earlier in the season.

Despite challenging conditions, co-captains Lachlan McGrigor and Matthew Russell led their team to victory and the team were a fantastic advert for running rugby, aligned with Scottish Rugby’s technical blueprint.

Without singling out a single player’s efforts, it was fantastic to see co-captain Lachlan McGrigor named Man of the Match by SRU officials.

The squad are now excited for the remainder of the season and look forward to continuing their success against their rivals up until April.

Good luck, boys!
