THE Ayrshire Bulls have been looking back on their recent triumph which saw them crowned as the first ever winners of the FOSROC Super6 rugby tournament.

FOSROC Super6 is Scottish Rugby’s new flagship part-time professional tournament, with the aim of bridging the gap between community club rugby and the full-time professional game. It is made up of teams from the previous Scottish Rugby Premiership, with Ayr Rugby Club running it.

The Bulls ran out 26-16 winners against Southern Knights in Edinburgh last month.

Back in 2018/19, Ayr secured a double, winning the Premiership and the Cup for the second time in their history. The other being in 2012/13. Due to the pandemic and with the shutdown of rugby, this resulted in a unique set of circumstances, where Ayr Rugby is the current Scottish Rugby Premiership, Cup and now the FOSROC Super6 Champions.

Looking back on the victory, Ayr Rugby and Ayrshire Bulls, General Manager Glen Tippett said: “Obviously we are delighted to win the first ever FOSROC Super6 Final. Everyone associated with the club is very proud of the Ayrshire Bulls, of course the players and coaches make it happen on the pitch, but there is a great team off the pitch as well.”

Looking ahead, Glen added: “We are a forward-thinking club with youth/mini and female teams, having all our young players, volunteer and coaches involved with the club is just as important as the Ayrshire Bulls, we are equally proud of them all.

"Being able to look at the FOSROC Super6, Scottish Rugby Premiership and Cup trophies all together in the trophy cabinet represents a lot of hard work, enjoyment and is one way of representing the ambition of the club.”
