STUART CAMERON of StuMedia caught up with Hamilton Rugby Club President Ross Whiteside ahead of yesterday’s National League Division One clash against Marr to get his take on Friday night’s Special General Meeting of the Scottish Rugby Union, which voted through a motion to place the ‘Club XVs’ of Super 6 teams into the second tier of the Scottish club game.
On the face of it, this was a win for the SRU and Super 6 clubs, but the handling of the whole affair has raised some deeply troubling questions about the current governance of the game in this country.
Whiteside spoke eloquently at the meeting about why his club were voting for the motion despite a lack of clarity from the SRU about key issues which will have a significant bearing on how the new structure impacts other clubs.
