Nick Grigg featured for the Academy select
Nick Grigg and George Horne featured in the Scottish Rugby Academy squad that lifted the NCS Glasgow City 7s at Dumbreck, home of Cartha Queens Park on Saturday.

The tournament was the final leg of the Legacy 7s Series with BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy players coming together as a cross-academy select for the first time since the development pathway’s inauguration last June.

Wins over GHA, Biggar and Marr set up a final against Tynedale in the final with Academy select running out 33-5 winners.

Glasgow Hawks' George Horne recently returned from his loan spell with London Scottish while Nick Grigg will join Glasgow Warriors next season on a pro deal.
