Meanwhile, Scottish Rugby has formed a new Youth Panel with 16 regional representatives selected to help shape the future of the sport.
The new members of the panel include players, match officials and coaches with a wide range of experiences in rugby, heralding from across the country.
Representing Edinburgh and District are Georgia Adams (Edinburgh University), Scarlett Crossan (Edinburgh Harlequins) and Jack Brown (George Watson’s College).
Appointed for the next two seasons, the panel will provide a platform for youth perspectives to be heard and understood. The group will also provide influence on a number of Scottish Rugby decisions as they work alongside the Rugby Development department.
Gavin Scott, Director of Rugby Development at Scottish Rugby said: “The Panel provides an excellent opportunity for young people to have meaningful discussions regarding the impact that Scottish Rugby decisions have on our young people, in addition to contributing and influencing positive change within Scottish Rugby .”
