Scottish Hall of Famers!
Congratulations to Scottish Alumni Robert Jenkins and Mike Williams for being two of the five selections in the Class of 2014 Rugby Ontario Hall of Fame! See the full article here.
Via Peter Mason: Tony played for the Scottish in the 70’s. He is well known to more senior members of the club as not only a fearless former prop and second row but accomplished cricketer and soccer pro. His off-field talents are just as visual and vocal being one of the club’s most renowned Tour singers and entertainers. Notwithstanding his achievements in other sports, Tony excels also on the greens and fairways. He currently lives in Southampton with his lovely wife Joan. Read a bit more about him on page two of the Grey Bruce Golf Club article here.
