Scotland Rugby

Scotland has a deep and storied relationship with the sport of rugby union. After all, the Scottish Rugby Union (which is the governing body of rugby union in Scotland) is the second oldest rugby union in the world. Plus, the Scottish Rugby Union was also a founding member of the International Rugby Football Board in 1886.

On the international stage, Scotland is represented by the men’s Scotland national rugby union team, which competes in the Six Nations Championship and the Rugby World Cup. The team has a history of success. They placed fourth at the Rugby World Cup in 1991 and they’ve won the Six Nations Championship outright 15 times. In addition, they’ve also shared the championship a further nine times, won the Grand Slam three times (when the tournament was the Five Nations) and have won the Triple Crown on 10 occasions.

The Scottish rugby team has a strong rivalry with England and they compete annually for the Calcutta Cup during the Scotland v England rugby game in the Six Nations Championship. At present, England have been the more successful side. They have won the trophy 71 times compared to Scotland’s 40.

Due to the national team’s success, four Scottish rugby players have also been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame. They are: Gordon Brown, Gavin Hastings, Andy Irvine and Ian McGeechan.

Since 1993, Scotland has also been represented on the international stage by the women’s Scotland national rugby union team, who compete in the Women’s Six Nations and the Women’s Rugby World Cup.
