Graham Ross And Oliver Turnbull

Scottish Rugby is saddened to learn of the death of two former Scotland internationalists – stand-off Graham Ross of Watsonians and centre Oliver Turnbull of Kelso.



Ross died in Edinburgh earlier this month aged 80. He won four caps in 1954 against New Zealand, Ireland, England and Wales.  Educated at George Watson’s College and the Scottish Hotel School, Ross did his national service in the RAF and also played club rugby for Wasps and Edinburgh Academicals.

Turnbull was in his 90th year when he passed away.  He won two caps against France and South Africa in 1951. He worked in forestry and farming and also played club rugby for the Co-optimists and the Barbarians.

Scottish Rugby extends its sincere condolences to the families and friends of both Graham Ross and Oliver Turnbull.
