There's been lots of activity at the club this week trying to get organised for our RBS Rugby Force day this Saturday and we were thrilled to hear this week the Scottish International players that will be visiting us.
From 12.30 pm to 3.00 pm we will be joined by:-
PETER HORNE – stand-off, centre
A local lad, Peter played for Howe of Fife and Bell Baxter in the season they won both the Scottish Youth League Cup and the Bell Lawrie Scottish Schools Cup. He played a season for West of Scotland during which time he made his debut for Glasgow Warriors before signing a full time contract in 2010. Having represented Scotland at under 19, under 20 and 7s, Peter’s first full international game for Scotland was on the 2013 summer tour to South Africa, Since then he has gone on to win 35 caps, scoring 45 points on the way, including 4 tries. He has been joined at Glasgow and at international level by younger brother George.
TOMMY SEYMOUR - winger
Born in Nashville and later moved with his family to Dubai and Belfast. He played 7 games for Ulster before moving to Glasgow Warriors in 2011 and qualifying for Scotland through his Glasgow born mother. Tommy was selected for his first Scotland squad in 2012 making his debut against South Africa the following year. He has gone on to win 43 caps so far and claimed 16 tries in the process. In 2017 he toured New Zealand with the British and Irish Lions and while not figuring in any of the tests ended up as top try scorer with 3 tries.
Weather permitting we will be continuing to paint the outside of the clubhouse so all help welcome, but rest assured if weather interrupts this there will be plenty else happening from clearing out a container to Q & A sessions with the players. Young players will also get the chance to throw a ball around with our visitors, and all have the opportunity to get autographs or their picture taken with them....and whilst doing all this you get to know us, Glenrothes Rugby Club!
All are welcome, members, non-members, whether you've been to the club before or not, please feel free to join us!
