​Scottish Rugby are now using a new player registration system called SCRUMS, having switched from the previous system (CDMS) at the end of the 2017/18 season.

From Monday 28 May 2018, Scottish Rugby have been in contact with clubs and schools to provide access to SCRUMS and instructions on how to use the system.

Any clubs or schools who have not yet nominated a designated SCRUMS Liaison person (i.e. the current Data Manager or Player Registration Coordinator) should do so immediately by emailing [email protected], providing name of the person, their role at club/school and their email address. Any club or school that has not provided this information will NOT be able to access SCRUMS and register players for the 2018/19 season.
