Celebrating Former Pupil Rugby Internationalists

We were delighted to welcome a number of rugby internationalists to Watson's this weekend.

Following the donation of a Rugby Captains' Board a few years ago it was decided the Stand should be used to promote and celebrate the traditions and success of GWC Rugby.

We have received International strips from all former pupils who have been capped post the merger of the Boys' and Girls' Colleges in 1974 and the strips are on display in the Stand alongside photographs of all rugby teams who have won a National Competition.

On Saturday we invited our former pupils who had donated strips to the first match of the season, the 1st XV against Stewart's Melville. This was followed by a lunch for our guests before watching the WFC FPs play against Heriot's in the afternoon.

In attendance were Adam Hastings (Class of 2014), Stuart McInally (Class of 2008), Marcus Di Rollo (Class of 1996), Jamie Mayer (Class of 1995), Scott Hastings (Class of 1982) and Gavin Hastings OBE (Class of 1980). Jason White (Class of 1996) and David Johnston (Class of 1977) were unable to attend.
