Ayr Rugby Football Club

D'arcy Rae has been named in the Scotland squad for their summer tour, whilst Robbie Smith and Stafford McDowall are in action in Georgia.

Young prop D'arcy, who renewed his contract with Glasgow Warriors this season whilst making appearances for Ayr, joins fellow Millbrae men Gordon Reid, Finn Russell and Ali Price in the squad. 

Finn and Ali started Scotland's game against Italy in Singapore, with Gordon Reid coming off the bench. All three will start when Scotland play Australia this Saturday.

Scotland's final match of the tour is against Fiji, and everyone at Ayr RFC has their fingers crossed that D'arcy makes his international debut.

D'arcy is the seventh Ayr player to (hopefully) get a Scotland cap in the past four years after Gordon, Finn, Ali, Pat MacArthur and Mark Bennett (currently injured, and therefore not in the Scotland squad) for the men and Emily Irving for the women.

Meanwhile, Robbie and Stafford have been playing for Scotland at the World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia, which began at the end of May. Both teenagers impressed in their U20 debuts during the Six Nations and have continued to do so in this tournament. 

We wish D'arcy, Robbie and Stafford all the best.
