Kippen Primary had a visit from 2 players from the Scotland Women’s Rugby Team. Megan Kennedy and Siobhan Cattigan also play for Stirling County Women’s Team and Stirling University Team, where they both are students. The pupils asked very thoughtful and interesting questions and were a fabulous audience for Megan and Siobhan. We learned about how they had started playing, what positions they play, what they do to train and what their best and worst moments have been in their rugby careers. They are both very proud of their win over Ireland away in Dublin in the recent 6 Nations. They showed us the caps that they were presented with for being Scottish Internationalists. It’s their first year in the Scotland Team so we hope to see them in many more matches in the future. Megan told us how she only took up rugby at 14 years old, whereas Siobhan has been playing since she was 5. Quite a lot of pupils already play rugby and are already following pathways that will see their enjoyment of the sport develop over the years to come. We sent out information from Strathendrick Rugby Club for those would be interested in developing their skills. 2 of our former pupils Lachlan Mackay and Keir Singleton were in the victorious Stirling County squad in the recent U18 National Youth League Cup Trophy. Well done to both of them. We always like to hear news of our former pupils.
