Scott has a PhD in Elite coaching, is an accredited strength and conditioning coach, was voted Elite Sport Coach of the Year 2021, and is as happy at the coaching coal-face as he is in the Board room.

Scott had this to say:

I am honoured to be entrusted with the strategic leadership of Scotland Rugby League in meeting its ambitions. I look forward to building on the legacy of the outgoing Chair Keith Hogg, and helping the sport grow domestically while supporting our National  Teams to deliver on the International stage.

With an inclusive version of the game for everyone and a World Cup year, it is an exciting time to be involved in Scotland Rugby League.
