Stirling announce another six Super6 signings
Stirling County have confirmed another six players who will be part of their 35-man squad for the inaugural Super6 season.
Adam Wood, George Arnott, Ross Bundy, Murphy Walker, Cameron Henderson and Grant Hughes have all put pen to paper to represent the Brigehaugh outfit next season.
In line with their homegrown first approach to recruitment all six were involved at the club last season and include three of the five Stage 3 Fosroc Academy players aligned to the club.
It was announced last month by Scottish Rugby that Murphy Walker and Cameron Henderson had been retained as Stage 3 Fosroc Academy players while Grant Hughes had been promoted.
On the announcement of the three Stage 3 players, County Head Coach Ben Cairns said “It’s great to have these three young men confirmed as part of our Super6 squad. They all have great potential and we are delighted to continue to play a part in their development as they push for further honours.
Our job is to create an environment that allows them to continue to grow and our hope is they can make the step up to pro rugby as quickly as possible.”
All three players are excited about what lies ahead, Murphy Walker commented “I’m really looking forward to playing with County this coming season and I’m excited to play with a strong group of boys alongside the new coaching team.
I’m hoping the new Super6 format will be a stepping stone for my ambitions to play professionally”.
While Cameron Henderson added “I’m really excited to be spending another year at Stirling County, it is a great family club and I really enjoyed my rugby last year playing at Bridgehaugh”.
Finally, Grant Hughes said “I’m really looking forward to the challenge that Super6 will bring and a much faster and more physical game in club rugby”
In addition to the three Fosroc Academy players, County men Adam Wood, George Arnott and Ross Bundy have also put pen to paper.
Cairns commented “Adam and Ross have been at the club since youth rugby while George had an excellent first season at the club having joined from Dundee. All three deserve their chance to step up and we are excited to see how far they can push themselves with the extra support our Super6 environment will provide”
