Scottish Building Society today (Wednesday 24th November 2021) launched a search for a deserving under-18 rugby team to win a bespoke training session from Edinburgh Rugby star, Scotland international and British & Irish Lion, Hamish Watson.
One lucky under-18 squad will receive a specially tailored training session from Watson at Edinburgh Rugby’s newly constructed DAM Health Stadium early next year, with the competition open to junior rugby teams across Scotland, including school sides, established rugby clubs or local community teams.
Led by Watson, with assistance from the Edinburgh Rugby community team, the winning squad can look forward to a masterclass from the back-row star, with the entirety of the session taking place on DAM Health Stadium’s artificial surface.
To enter, all teams need to do is complete this form detailing why they should win the session, sharing details on their team, their ambitions for the season ahead and what they’d like to get out of the session.
Entries must be in by Saturday 8th January 2022. The winning team will be contacted directly to organise the session that will take place at a time/date TBC in early 2022.
The competition celebrates the partnership between Scottish Building Society and Edinburgh Rugby, which is supporting rugby throughout Scotland.
Paul Denton, Chief Executive Officer for Scottish Building Society, said: “We are excited to be able to offer one team the opportunity to train with one of Scotland’s best players and to gain first-hand experience of his legendary carrying and skills at the breakdown.
“As a mutual we are committed to giving back to our local communities so it’s fantastic to be backing grassroots rugby in this way. I already know some of the great work rugby clubs right across the country are doing both on and off the pitch and I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries as they come in.”
Edinburgh Rugby star, Watson, added: “I’m really excited to launch this initiative with Scottish Building Society and I can’t wait to welcome a deserving Junior side to DAM Health Stadium in 2022.
“I absolutely loved getting tips and picking up skills from pro players when I was young kid, so it’ll be great to give something back and hopefully the boys or girls take something out of the bespoke session.
“I’d encourage any junior side to enter this competition where they’ll get the opportunity to train like the pros at the brand new home of Edinburgh Rugby.”
