YOUNG rugby players at Ross High RFC were put through their paces by a Scotland captain last week.

Scott Riddell, the Scotland 7s captain, worked with youngsters from the club’s U13s, U14s and girls’ teams in Tranent last Thursday evening.

The visit came just days after Riddell won his record-breaking 59th cap on the HSBC World Series, becoming the most-capped Scotland 7s player of all-time.

And the 32-year-old, who has been to two Commonwealth Games, said: “I really enjoyed the evening.

“The players were fully engaged with the session and I saw some super skills being displayed.”

Stuart Fleming, president of Ross High Rugby Youth Section, was delighted to welcome Riddell to Tranent.

He told Courier Sport: “The players loved having Scott down and they fully embraced the occasion; I’m sure they will be talking about it for a long time to come.

“Thanks to Scott for taking time out of his hectic schedule to visit us.”
