Ayr Rugby Football Club

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

Scotland will play matches against Italy, Australia and Fiji next month, 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 will be playing for Scotland at the World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia, beginning at the end of May. Both teenagers impressed in their U20 debuts during the Six Nations and will be keen to collect more caps. 

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