FOSROC Super6 is a new and separate tournament within Scottish Rugby’s competition structure. It will be played by six franchise teams, with part-time professional players and will become the new top tier of domestic rugby in Scotland. Super6 aims to improve playing standards, by better-developing Scottish players, coaches and match officials to feed talent into the full-time professional game.
The first FOSROC Super6 competition kicks off in November 2019 with all teams playing each other home and away, followed by finals to determine the overall champion. Ticket information for all matches can be found by contacting the individual teams.
FOSROC Super6 teams
Six teams have been awarded Super6 licences for the first five seasons of the competition:
- Ayrshire Bulls
- Southern Knights
Stirling County, who play at Bridgehaugh against the dramatic backdrop of the Wallace Monument, have recently appointed former Edinburgh centre Ben Cairns to the position of Head Coach.
Former Scotland star Graham Shiel, who has previously been Head Coach of the national 7s side, has taken the Super6 reins at the Bears, who play their home games at Meggetland in the capital.
- Watsonians Rugby
The Goldenacre club, the only side never to have been relegated from Scotland’s top flight, will have a new-look coaching team in time for the start of the FOSROC Super6 season.
