Gregor Townsend welcomes plans for players’ union

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has welcomed moves to create a professional rugby players’ association, which would finally see the country follow other tier one nations in having independent union representation.

The creation of Rugby Players Scotland, with Scotland international Tim Swinson at the forefront of the initiative, has had a 100 per cent approval from professional players at Glasgow Warriors, Edinburgh and the national sevens and women’s squads.
