Borders College

College duo selected for Scotland Women Under 18s

Two Borders College students have been selected as part of the Scotland Rugby Union women’s squad to play in the ‘Rugby Europe 7s Trophy’ in Andorra this weekend (22-24 September).

The students are Anna Forsyth, from Peebles, who is studying Sports Coaching and Development along with fellow sports student Morven Rough, from Perth.

The Scotland team play Georgia, Ukraine and hosts, Andorra, in their pool before playing Germany, Poland, Latvia or Bulgaria in the knock-out stages.

Head Coach Louise Dalgliesh commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for the girls to test themselves in a completely new environment against some unknown teams. The focus will have to be very much on our own performance, as this is the only thing within our control.”

We wish all of the team the very best of luck.
