Rugby – Merchiston Castle School

By - Richard - 11th May 2016

Completing the hat trick of sports films we’ve just produced for Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh (alongside films about the school’s prestigious Golf Academy and Tennis Academy) is a bespoke film about rugby. Merchiston is synonymous with the sport. The school has a fearsome reputation for nurturing and developing exceptional rugby talent with over 60 former pupils having gone on to play rugby at international level.

With contributions from former Scotland Head Coach (and former Director of rugby at the school) Frank Hadden and appearances from famous faces of Scottish rugby, both past and present, this film tells the story, ethos and history of rugby at one of the UK’s finest breeding grounds for rugby talent.
