The President and Committee of Stewart’s Melville Rugby Football Club wish to congratulate all six Clubs who successfully tendered for and have subsequently been awarded Super Six Franchise Status for season 2019-2020.
Our commiserations must also go to those six Clubs who lost out. They will, however, take comfort from the fact that the tender process was done in a most professional manner and that they will form the backbone of the amateur game going forward in Scotland.
To our local neighbours, Heriot’s Rugby, we look forward to seeing your Club continuing to be at the very heart of Scottish Rugby – and, with that, our long association on the north side of Edinburgh will continue.
Finally well done to Mark Dodson, the Selection Panel and everyone involved at Murrayfield in making this bold initiative become reality.
President, Stewart’s Melville RFC
