Hume joins Scottish Rugby council

Former Scotland Women’s Team Manager, Rosy Hume, has been elected to the Scottish Rugby Council.

She replaces Dee Bradbury as the Scottish Women’s Forum representive, following Bradbury’s election as Vice President at the 2016 AGM.

Hume, a former Heriot-Watt University and Murrayfield Wanderers player managed Scotland’s women’s team from 2000-2004.

The 16-member council is elected by clubs to oversee the Scottish Rugby Board’s work.

Hume said: “I took some time away from rugby to start a family and decided to apply for the council vacancy with a view to involving myself in the development of the game across the country.

“Rugby has always played an important role in my life, having provided me with a sense of community and long-lasting friendships.

“I’m looking forward to working as a member of the council and acting as a voice for the women’s game.

“It has improved significantly with the induction of Scotland’s first full-time professional women’s player, Jade Konkel, and the development of the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy.”

Hume, an Edinburgh-based acting head teacher was on the board of the SWRU during its amalgamation with Scottish Rugby.

She was nominated by Murrayfield Wanderers for the vacancy and seconded by Grangemouth Stags and Edinburgh University Ladies. Her initial term on the council will run until the 2019 Scottish Rugby AGM.
