A group of former Scotland Rugby League Students are organising a reunion for former players and staff from all the eras in what should be a fantastic weekend and for creating something quite unique and enjoyable in the Rugby League World.

The group thought it would be good to get the information out to you as soon as possible, firstly to understand whether you would want to come to a reunion (particularly to have a rough idea of numbers to plan things around) and secondly to get the date in the diary!

The suggested date is the weekend of Fri 22 – Sun 24 Oct in Edinburgh/Newcastle.

The rough plan is to have a few events that people can dip in or out of (or come to all!) throughout the weekend, as we know people may be travelling from afar and/or want to see other friends/family over the weekend too.

Hopefully the planned events will give everyone the chance to catch up with former teammates and managements, but also meet some of the past and future legends on and off the pitch!

The initial itinerary is:

1) Fri 22 Oct (evening) – a few informal drinks in Edinburgh.

2) Sat 23 Oct (afternoon), Edinburgh – a game of rugby (or touch rugby for those who don’t fancy the full contact!)

3) Sat 23 Oct (evening), Edinburgh – a formal meal or buffet.

4) Sun 24 Oct – travel to Newcastle to attend the Rugby League World Cup match, Scotland v Italy (KO 1430). Disperse afterwards to return home.

If you are interested in coming along to any of the events, please could you contact Kate Farmer to make sure she is aware of your interest and will be able to keep you updated.

When we have more details about the planned events, and to confirm numbers for the Saturday evening meal and World Cup match, we will let you know and ask for specific attendance.

There is a WhatsApp group for former Scotland Student players/management if you would like to join this group please again make contact with Kate.

This is a great opportunity for a memorable and enjoyable weekend, and hopefully one that we can all look forward to after a surreal and turbulent year.
