The wait is over…
With five and a half weeks to go until the start of the inaugural FOSROC Super6 season the Watsonians Rugby squad has been announced.
Head coach Fergus Pringle has worked hard to bring together 35 exciting players who, in turn, have been training hard in recent weeks ahead of the first competitive match away to the Southern Knights on Saturday, November 9.
Before then the squad will play some friendlies and these will be announced soon.
Pringle said: “We are really happy with the squad that we have put together.
“We a number of players in there who have been at Watsonians a while and know what playing for this club means and they have been joined by some youth and experience from elsewhere - and the mix in the squad looks exciting.
“With all six squads now announced we cannot wait to get going in our friendly games and then away to the Southern Knights in the first competitive match.
“It is going to be an excellent competition and we look forward to bringing Super6 rugby to Myreside in the coming months.”
So, without further ado here are the players who will be representing Watsonians in the FOSROC Super6 in 2019/20 with 20 forwards and 15 backs selected:
