Rugby Coordinator Appointed

Rugby Coordinator Appointed


It give me great pleasure to welcome Bruce Ruthven on board in the position of Rugby Coordinator at the club. This full time position with the School, Lions and Midis is a significant step in our progress to ‘Total SMC Rugby’.

The Rugby Coordinator will facilitate the concept of ‘SMC Rugby’, one body where the aims and objectives are intrinsically intertwined for the benefit of the school, the club and all participants. The aim is to create an organisation which will continue to be at the forefront of Scottish Rugby with a clear development ethos and greater cohesion as its major strengths.

Bruce is currently Development Officer with Orkney RFC (above) and has held Director of Rugby posts at Ledbury RFC in England. He is a very well qualified coach (UKCC 3) and coach educator and is heavily involved in strength & conditioning and player development plans.

His playing career highlights include 193 competitive games for Melrose, Scotland Caps at U16, 18, 19 & 21 levels and 28 Scotland Development team caps.

Bruce – welcome to Invers. We look forward to you joining us in August and developing our next generation of warriors.

Colin Rigby
