The Super 6 is a new and separate tournament within Scottish Rugby’s competition structure. It will be played by part-time professional players and will become the top tier of domestic rugby in Scotland, with the aim of increasing playing standards, by better-developing Scottish players, coaches and match officials to feed talent into the full-time professional game.
Super 6 is a key element of the Performance pillar within Agenda 3. It is designed to improve standards in the domestic game through a consistent quality of games and an environment where aspiring players, coaches and match officials are challenged.
It will provide a smoother transition into the professional game and an enhanced player, coaching and match official development pathway. Super 6 also aims to increase wider interest in our domestic game.
Six clubs have been awarded Super 6 licences for the first five seasons of the competition: Ayr, Boroughmuir, Heriot’s, Melrose, Stirling County and Watsonians. These clubs are congratulated on their hard work in achieving the required standard and demonstrating their ambitions to grow and improve their clubs and the wider game in Scotland.
