Highly popular and highly professional, Scotland Rugby League Head of Medical Paul ” Stocko” Stockton has stepped down from the role he has held since 2015.

During his time with Scotland, Stocko has been a vital part of the Senior Men’s support  team and has provided support for all Scotland’s other representative teams as and when required. He has set the highest medical support standards at all times. Stocko was a key member of the team involved with the 2016 Four Nations and the 2017 Rugby League World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

We would like to put on record our thanks to Stocko for the time, effort and professionalism he has put into Scotland Rugby League over the last 5 years.

Stocko has a very important role in the NHS frontline that is fighting the terrible impact of COVID-19 on so many people. We especially thank him and all his colleagues for their incredible commitment and the great work that they are doing.
