One measure of progress at the Club is the continuing elevation of players to the upper ranks of Scottish Rugby. Moray Low, Johnny Beattie, Ruaridh Jackson, Stuart Corsar, Sean Crombie, Andrew Wilson, David Millard, Rory McKay, Ben Prescott, Matthew Taylor and Robbie Russell are all players who have gone on from our Club to play in the professional game.
The Rugby Club has produced a number of Scottish Internationalists throughout its 119-year existence. The late Dr Donny Innes and Dally Allardice were its most capped players until Robbie Russell in recent times bagged 27 before retiring from the game.
Our Club has been further honoured in having provided five Presidents of the Scottish Rugby Union, the most recent being the late Charlie Ritchie in 1997/98. D.W.C. (Doug) Smith is particularly remembered for also being manager of the victorious 1971 Lions Tour to New Zealand and Australia.
