Super 6 Application Update

As many of you will have seen in the media yesterday, our bid for a Super 6 franchise was unsuccessful. This is obviously disappointing, especially as a lot of work went into our bid, which we felt was as strong as it could be and addressed all the stipulated criteria.

We would particularly like to thank our partners, the University of Edinburgh, for their support in this application and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them.

The Committee will have the opportunity to meet with Mr Dodson and others from Scottish Rugby in a few weeks, at which time they will go through our application in more detail and explain more fully the rationale behind the decision. We will update members again after this meeting.
