Members' Business — S6M-04871 Douglas Lumsden: Celebrating Success of Rugby in Scotland

Thursday 23 June 2022 12:51 PM


That the Parliament recognises the fantastic achievements of all of those involved in Scottish rugby in 2021-22; congratulates the women’s team for reaching the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand in 2022, and the men’s team for winning the Calcutta Cup and Cuttitta Cup; notes the rise in popularity of Clan rugby and the work that is currently ongoing to encourage the playing of rugby with minority ethnic communities throughout Scotland; welcomes the return of the Rugby Sevens tournaments in 2022; believes that this has brought economic benefit to towns and villages, and enjoyment to all; commends the work of School of Hard Knocks, which is a charity that works with vulnerable children and adults to build self-confidence and self-respect through playing rugby, and supports the work that is being done with young people, boys and girls, in schools and communities up and down the country, including in North East Scotland, through an army of volunteers, coaches and supporters, without whom, it believes, community sports would cease to exist.
