November Hustings 2016

Overall, November hustings was an absolute success, with the most candidates we have seen in years. There’s no doubt this was down to the series of Apprentice-style promotional videos we did running up to hustings. They were really high quality and made a real difference. The night itself, with over 20 candidates videos and speeches to play on the big screen, ran really smoothly. The room was totally packed, as we managed to promote the night really well on social media.

Victory for RR Rugby Boys

2016 was the first year that Rigg-Rut saw its Mens’ rugby team reach the top pool of the IMS tournament. Buoyed by the introduction of team coaches Tom MacQuish and Alex Roberts, the new team found their way to the top of pool B. A convincing 38-0 victory against Cayley along with a 48-12 win over Rutherford saw Rigg-Rut make history.  Led by captain Scott Renfree Tuck and with several squad members pushing for a spot in the rugby All-star team, the future looks bright for our ambitious rugby side.
