Following the announcement of George Breese moving up, we’re pleased to announce that Callum Cruickshank is also progressing from Wolves to FOSROC Super6 this season.
Callum was a fantastic schoolboy prospect. He was a standout performer for Dollar Academy as well as at regional and national U18 age-grade level.
Cruickshank returned to rugby for season 2019/2020 and played for the Wolves. Callum has trained consistently well since being back. He has huge potential to really kick on with his rugby, alongside a high work rate, very physical and good over ball.
Callum said: “The environment is so different to anything I’ve been in before, everyone is pushing themselves and each other to keep getting better.
“I’m extremely excited for the upcoming season. The boys have been working really hard during preseason to make sure we are in the best place to kick off when the season starts.”
Head Coach, Ben Cairns, commented: “It’s great to be able to bring Callum into the FOSROC Super6 fold. I first coached Callum with Scotland U18s and at that stage he was on the fast track to becoming a pro player. It’s great to see him back and training since restrictions were lifted he has really earned himself this opportunity to step up.”
Another player joining Callum Cruikshank is Byron Bowes (24) playing lock who further adds to the Super6 team line up for this season.
Born in London, Byron has played rugby since a young age and for most of his life. During his playing career to date, he has been crowned U20 player of the year and gone onto be Captain.
On his move to Stirling Byron commented: “It was nice to get a couple weeks off after a long campaign but now I’m keen to get back at. I’m excited to be part of the upcoming FOSROC Super6 season at Stirling County and test myself at this level.”
Head Coach Ben Cairns said: “Byron will add real depth to our second row. He’s played in a side used to winning and we know he will bring that mentality into our ranks.”
