The Scotland
Scotland
national rugby union team is administered by the Scottish Rugby Union. The team takes part in the annual Six Nations Championship and participates in the Rugby World Cup, which takes place every four years. As of 26 February 2018[update], Scotland
Scotland
are 5th in the World Rugby
World Rugby
Rankings. The Scottish rugby team dates back to 1871, where they beat England
England
in the first international rugby union match at Raeburn Place. Scotland competed in the Five Nations from the inaugural tournament in 1883, winning it 14 times outright—including the last ever Five Nations in 1999—and sharing it another 8. In 2000 the competition accepted a sixth competitor, Italy, thus forming the Six Nations. Since this change, Scotland
Scotland
have yet to win the competition. The Rugby World Cup was introduced in 1987 and Scotland
Scotland
have competed in all eight competitions, the most recent being in 2015 where they were knocked out by Australia
Australia
at the quarter-final stage in controversial circumstances. Their best finish came in 1991, where they lost to the All Blacks
All Blacks
in the third place play-off. Scotland
Scotland
have a strong rivalry with the English national team. They both annually compete for the Calcutta Cup. Each year, this fixture is played out as part of the Six Nations, with Scotland
Scotland
having last won in 2018.

History[edit] Main article: History of rugby union in Scotland 1871–1924[edit] The Scots issue a challenge[edit]

Scotland's first national team, 1871, for the 1st international, vs. England
England
in Edinburgh.

In December 1870 a group of Scots players issued a letter of challenge in The Scotsman
The Scotsman
and in Bell's Life in London, to play an England
England
XX at rugby rules. The English could hardly ignore such a challenge and this led to the first-ever rugby international match being played at Academical Cricket Club's ground at Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, on Monday 27 March 1871. In front of around 4000 spectators, the Scots won the encounter by a try (made by Angus Buchanan) and a goal (made by William Cross) to a solitary try scored by England
England
(a points scoring system had not then been devised so only the goal counted towards the 1–0 score). England
England
later got revenge by winning the return match at the Kennington Oval, London in the following year.[1][2][3] The Calcutta Cup[edit]

The Calcutta Cup

The Calcutta Cup
Calcutta Cup
was donated to the Rugby Football Union
Rugby Football Union
in 1878 by the members of the short-lived Calcutta Rugby Club. The members had decided to disband: the cup was crafted from melted-down silver rupees which became available when the Club's funds were withdrawn from the bank. The Cup is unique in that it is competed for annually only by England
England
and Scotland. The first Calcutta Cup
Calcutta Cup
match was played in 1879 and, since that time, over 100 matches have taken place.[4] Origins of the Nations Championship[edit] In 1882 the Home Nations Championship, the fore-runner of the modern Six Nations Championship
Six Nations Championship
was founded with Scotland, England, Wales
Wales
and Ireland taking part.[5] The Scots enjoyed occasional success in the early years, winning their first Triple Crown in 1891 and repeating the feat again in 1895,[5][6] and vying with Wales
Wales
for dominance in the first decade of the 20th century.[5] Further Triple Crowns wins for Scotland
Scotland
followed in 1901, 1903 and 1907.[6] However, Scotland's triumph in 1907 would be the last for eighteen years as the First World War (1914–1918) and England's dominance afterwards would deny them glory.[5] Home ground[edit] In 1897 land was purchased, by the SFU, at Inverleith, Edinburgh. Thus the SFU became the first of the Home Unions to own its own ground. The first visitors were Ireland, on 18 February 1899 ( Scotland
Scotland
3–9 Ireland). International rugby was played at Inverleith
Inverleith
until 1925. The SFU bought some land and built the first Murrayfield Stadium
Murrayfield Stadium
which was opened on 21 March 1925.[6] 1925–1945[edit] In 1925 Scotland
Scotland
already had victories over France
France
at Inverleith (25–4), Wales
Wales
in Swansea (24–14) and Ireland in Dublin (14–8). England, the Grand Slam champions of the two previous seasons were the first visitors to Murrayfield. 70,000 spectators saw the lead change hands three times before Scotland
Scotland
secured a 14–11 victory which gave them their first-ever Five Nations Grand Slam.[7] In 1926, Scotland
Scotland
became the first Home nation
Home nation
side to defeat England at Twickenham after England
England
had won the Grand Slam five times in eight seasons.[5][8] The outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 brought rugby union in Scotland
Scotland
to a halt. The SRU cancelled all arranged trial and international matches and encouraged the member clubs to carry on as best they could. Some clubs closed down, others amalgamated and carried on playing other local clubs and, sometimes, teams from the armed forces stationed in their various areas.[6] 1946–1987[edit] Internationals resumed in the 1946–47 season, although these were not formally recognised and no caps were awarded to participating players.[6] In January 1946, Scotland
Scotland
played and defeated a strong New Zealand Armed Forces team by 11–6.[9][10] Scotland
Scotland
resumed full international matches in February 1947, losing 22–8 to Wales
Wales
at Murrayfield.[6] The period after World War Two was not a successful one for Scotland. In 1951, the touring Springboks massacred Scotland
Scotland
44–0 scoring nine tries, a then record defeat.[11] Scotland
Scotland
suffered 17 successive defeats between February 1951 and February 1955, scored only 54 points in these 17 games: 11 tries, six conversions, and four penalties.[12] The teams from 1955–63 were an improvement. There were no wins over England, but three of the games were drawn. Occasional wins were recorded against Wales, Ireland and France.[13] 1964 was a good year for Scotland. New Zealand
New Zealand
were held to a 0–0 draw, the last international match in which no points were scored.[14] The Calcutta Cup was won 15–6, the first time since 1950[15] and they shared the Five Nations title in 1964 with Wales.[16] In 1971 the SRU appointed Bill Dickinson as their head coach, after years of avoidance, as it was their belief that rugby should remain an amateur sport. He was officially designated as an "adviser to the captain".[17] Scotland
Scotland
were the first of the Home Unions to run a truly nationwide club league.[citation needed] This was introduced in 1973 and still flourishes today with several of the country's original clubs still very much in evidence, such as Heriots, West of Scotland, Watsonians and the famous 'border' clubs such as Gala, Hawick, Jed-Forest, Kelso and Melrose.[citation needed] However the advent of professionalism saw Scotland's District championship abandoned and two 'Super Districts' formed, which have resulted in the top players generally being unavailable for their clubs.[citation needed] These teams play in international club competitions such as the Heineken Cup
Heineken Cup
and the Pro12.[citation needed] On 1 March 1975, around 104,000 spectators watched Scotland
Scotland
defeat Wales
Wales
12–10 in a Five Nations match at Murrayfield. The attendance at the time was a World Record for a Rugby Union match, and remains the record attendance at Murrayfield.[18][19] That win was part of a run of nine successive wins at Murrayfield during the 1970s for the national side, but they were unable to transfer that form outwith Scotland, only managing two away wins during the decade.[20] In 1977 Nairn McEwan succeeded Bill Dickinson as national coach.[21] However, he was only able to win one international in his three years in charge.[21] Nevertheless, rugby in Scotland
Scotland
was clearly developing.[22] The establishment of the national leagues in 1973–74 was beginning to bear fruit; the standard of club and district rugby was higher than ever and players were more accustomed to experiencing pressure in matches where the result really mattered.[22] Fewer players were being selected from English clubs to represent Scotland as the domestic game was producing an adequate number of players of genuine international class for the first time since the First World War.[22] Jim Telfer became national coach in 1980,[23] inheriting a squad of genuine potential.[22] In March 1982 Scotland
Scotland
won away in Wales
Wales
for the first time in 20 years.[24] Scotland
Scotland
toured Australia
Australia
in July 1982 and won the first test, Scotland's first away victory against any of the big three Southern Hemisphere sides.[25][26] After this, the 1983 season was a disappointment; losing their first three Five Nations matches.[27] However, the tournament ended on a high when Scotland recorded only their second victory over England
England
at Twickenham since 1938.[23] Scotland
Scotland
then went on to draw with the All Blacks
All Blacks
25–25 in the late autumn.[27] Scotland
Scotland
recovered their form in 1984 and achieved their second Grand Slam, and their first since 1925, under the captaincy of Jim Aitken.[23] The team benefited from consistent selection - 12 players took part in all four Five Nations matches,[22] and of the 20 players used in total throughout only two played for clubs outwith Scotland.[22] Jim Telfer stood down after the Grand Slam to concentrate on his professional career as a school master. He was succeeded by his assistant, the former Hawick fly-half, Colin Telfer (not a relative).[22][28] He lasted just over a year, enduring a whitewash in the 1985 Five Nations, before resigning to concentrate on his business.[29] Derrick Grant was then appointed head coach.[29] In January 1986, a trial match between "Blues" (players expected to feature for Scotland) and "Reds" (emerging players with a possible international future) resulted in a shock 41–10 win for the "Reds".[30] The "Reds" team included Gavin and Scott Hastings, Finlay Calder and David Sole, all of whom who would debut for Scotland
Scotland
in the Five Nations that year and feature prominently for side in the years that followed.[31] Scotland
Scotland
went on to share the 1986 Five Nations championship with France, each side winning three out of their four games.[32] The series also saw Scotland
Scotland
thrash England
England
33–6 at Murrayfield; Scotland's record win over the English, at the time one point short of Scotland's best score in any rugby union international and England's heaviest defeat in over a century.[33] 1987–2000[edit] Scotland
Scotland
went to the first World Cup, played in New Zealand
New Zealand
and Australia
Australia
in the summer of 1987. John Rutherford, the team's general and controlling influence, had injured his knee on an unauthorised tour of Bermuda. He broke down after less than a quarter of an hour of the first World Cup match against France
France
and never played for Scotland again. Scotland
Scotland
had been in the lead but the match finished level. Scotland
Scotland
lost to New Zealand
New Zealand
in the quarter-final. On 27 June 1988, Ian McGeechan was appointed as head coach to succeed Derrick Grant who had retired after the end of the 1988 Five Nations series.[34] Their greatest year in the modern era was 1990,[citation needed] when their season came down to one game, a Grand Slam decider at Murrayfield against the "auld enemy", England. Both sides had won all their Five Nations fixtures, and England
England
were overwhelming favourites despite being the away side. Scotland
Scotland
under the captaincy of prop David Sole went on to win 13–7,[35] and with it their third Grand Slam.[36] The match against England
England
in 1990 was also only the second time that Flower of Scotland
Flower of Scotland
was played at Murrayfield, having become Scotland's pre-match national anthem that year.[37] The second World Cup took place in 1991 with matches shared between the Five Nations. Scotland
Scotland
won their pool, though the game against Ireland was close, and then beat Western Samoa in the quarter-final. They lost to England
England
in the semi-final held at Murrayfield to a Rob Andrew drop goal. In the third place play-off they were beaten by New Zealand.[38] Scotland
Scotland
went through 1994 without a single win,[39] but bounced back in 1995 to win their first three Five Nations matches.[40] This run of wins included a 23–21 win away against France, courtesy of a last minute try and conversion by Gavin Hastings.[39] This was Scotland's first win in Paris since 1969.[39][40] The last Five Nations match was another Grand Slam decider against England, however this time the English defeated the Scots 24–12, largely due to the kicking prowess of Rob Andrew.[40] The third World Cup, held in South Africa, came in 1995. Pool play saw a narrow defeat by France, thanks to an injury-time try, and Scotland finished second in the pool. They were eliminated in the quarter-final against New Zealand.[41] Scotland
Scotland
won the last-ever Five Nations Championship
Five Nations Championship
in 1999 with a last minute win by Wales
Wales
over England.[42] However, in the 1999 World Cup they suffered a quarter-final defeat to New Zealand.[43] 2000–2008[edit] Scotland
Scotland
endured a torrid Six Nations in 2000, losing their first four straight games.[44] but won the final game against England
England
19–13 under captain Andy Nicol.[45]

Australian coach Matt Williams became the first foreigner to coach Scotland
Scotland
in 2003.[46] However his tenure was both controversial and unsuccessful, marred by a string of poor results and fall-outs with coaches and players.[46][47][48] In 2004 Williams attempted to introduce a controversial "Fortress Scotland" policy, whereby only those currently playing in Scotland
Scotland
were eligible to play in the national team.[49] Meanwhile, the Scottish Rugby Union
Scottish Rugby Union
(SRU) came under new management, chief executive Phil Anderton (known as 'Firework Phil' for his pre-match entertainment spectacles) was leading the way back to financial solvency and implementing major reforms to reverse the decline of the game in Scotland, but he resigned in January 2005 after his boss David Mackay was forced to resign by the SRU's general committee.[50][51] By April 2005, Scotland had won only three out of 17 matches under Williams.[46] Following a review by the SRU and public criticism from several of his players,[48] Williams was finally sacked on 25 April 2005.[52] Frank Hadden, the head coach of Edinburgh
Edinburgh
Gunners, was appointed interim coach for the 2005 summer internationals against the Barbarians and Romania,[53] winning both.[54] On 15 September 2005, he was appointed national coach of the Scotland
Scotland
team.[54] In the first match of the 2006 Six Nations campaign, against France, Scotland
Scotland
won 20–16,[55] and this was the first time since 1999 that they had beaten France.[56] Scotland
Scotland
also beat England
England
18–12 at home at Murrayfield to reclaim the Calcutta Cup.[57] In the 2006 Autumn internationals Scotland
Scotland
won two of three fixtures. They convincingly beat Romania[58] and put up a solid first half performance against the Pacific Islanders.[59] In the final match against Australia, Scotland failed to impress, with Australia
Australia
winning 44–15.[60]

11 November 2006 Scotland
Scotland
44–6 Romania

In 2007, Scotland
Scotland
became the first Six Nations team to lose at home to Italy, 17–37.[61] This was Italy's biggest ever victory over Scotland, home or away. Later that year, the side travelled to France for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. They made their way through their group and reached the quarter finals, where they were knocked out by Argentina.[62] Scotland
Scotland
opened their 2008 Six Nations campaign losing 27–6 to France
France
at home.[63] Pressure on Frank Hadden started to intensify after Scotland
Scotland
lost to Wales[64] and then to Ireland.[65] They then defeated England
England
in the Calcutta Cup
Calcutta Cup
with a 15–9 victory[66] before succumbing to Italy, avoiding the wooden spoon only on scoring difference.[67] They then toured Argentina in the summer to play two tests against Argentina. They lost the first test 21–15, but won the second 26–14.[68] 2009–present[edit] In a dismal 2009 Six Nations campaign, Scotland
Scotland
won just one match for a second consecutive year (against Italy) and thus, on 2 April 2009 Frank Hadden resigned as head coach of the national side.[69] On 4 June 2009, ex-England, Edinburgh
Edinburgh
and Bath coach Andy Robinson was named head coach in time for the 2009 Autumn Internationals.[70] Scotland's form picked up with a 23–10 victory over Fiji[71] and a memorable 9–8 win against Australia
Australia
(the first win over the Wallabies for 27 years) at Murrayfield.[72] In the 2010 Six Nations Scotland
Scotland
lost against France, Wales
Wales
and Italy before drawing with England. Against Ireland, in the final rugby match at Croke Park, Scotland
Scotland
gained their only win of the tournament 23–20 with a last-minute penalty by Dan Parks, denying the Irish the Triple Crown and assuring they themselves would avoid the wooden spoon.[73] That summer, Scotland
Scotland
toured Argentina and recorded their first ever away series victory, beating the Pumas in both tests, 24–16 and 13–9.[74] In the Autumn Internationals of 2010, Scotland lost heavily against New Zealand
New Zealand
before recording victories against South Africa, 21–17, and Samoa, 19–16.[75] Scotland
Scotland
had a poor showing in the 2011 Six Nations, winning just one match, a 21–8 victory over Italy.[76] In the 2011 Rugby World Cup, Scotland
Scotland
struggled to beat Romania 34–24 and Georgia 15–6,[77][78] before losing 13–12 to Argentina.[79] Needing a win going into their final match against England
England
in Auckland, they led 12–3 with a quarter of the game to go, only to lose out to a Chris Ashton try, going down 16–12. This was the first time Scotland
Scotland
had been knocked out in the group stages of the Rugby World Cup.[80] Scotland
Scotland
were terrible during the 2012 Six Nations, picking up the wooden spoon and being whitewashed, despite promising moments,[81] and falling to 12th, Scotland's lowest ever in the IRB rankings.[82] Even after this whitewash, Scotland
Scotland
defeated Australia
Australia
9–6 in the 2012 Scotland
Scotland
rugby union tour of Australia, Fiji and Samoa. This was Scotland's first win in Australia
Australia
since 1982 and the first time in 30 years that Scotland
Scotland
defeated Australia
Australia
more than once in a row.[83] Scotland
Scotland
also recorded away wins over both Fiji and Samoa.[84] During Scotland's 2012 Autumn Tests they suffered a series of defeats, versus the All Blacks, South Africa and most notably Tonga, which caused head coach Andy Robinson to resign.[85] Scott Johnson became interim Head Coach for the team in December 2012.[86] During the 2013 Six Nations, Scotland
Scotland
won their matches against Italy and Ireland to finish third, their best finish in the competition since 2006. On 3 May 2013, Johnson was named the first ever Director of Rugby for Scotland
Scotland
responsible for overseeing all rugby in the nation.[87] On 27 May 2013, it was announced that Vern Cotter
Vern Cotter
would become head coach of Scotland, but the SRU had to wait until 2014 as club Clermont failed to reach an agreement with the SRU to release Cotter a year early from his contract.[88] Scotland
Scotland
had a dismal 2014 Six Nations campaign; managing only one win (away in Italy), finishing second bottom and hammered 51–3 by Wales in the final match.[89] Vern Cotter
Vern Cotter
finally assumed his role as head coach, and in June of the same year Scotland
Scotland
won three tests against the top teams of the Americas, before being hammered by South Africa 55–6.[90] The three autumn tests held at Murrayfield during November yielded wins over Argentina and Tonga, and a narrow defeat against New Zealand.[91][92] The test against Tonga took place at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock, and was the first Rugby Union international to be played on an artificial surface.[92] The 2015 Six Nations Championship
Six Nations Championship
ended in a whitewash for Scotland, despite optimism amongst players and supporters beforehand.[93] However, Scotland
Scotland
displayed improved performances in their World Cup warm-up games over the summer, with two wins over Italy and narrow defeats away in Ireland and France.[94] Scotland
Scotland
played well at the 2015 Rugby World Cup
Rugby World Cup
in England; qualifying from their group by beating Japan, USA and Samoa, although they lost to South Africa. Scotland
Scotland
played Australia
Australia
in the quarter-finals, and with 30 seconds remaining led 34–32. However, referee Craig Joubert
Craig Joubert
then awarded the Wallabies a highly controversial penalty, later judged by the game's ruling body to be incorrect, which Bernard Foley
Bernard Foley
scored to give Australia
Australia
victory.[95][96] Scotland
Scotland
lost their first two games in the 2016 Six Nations Championship, extending their losing streak in the Six Nations to nine matches, their worst run in the championship since the 1950s.[97] The Scots finally ended their losing run with a 36–20 win over Italy in Rome; John Barclay, John Hardie and Tommy Seymour
Tommy Seymour
all scoring tries.[98] Scotland
Scotland
followed that win up with a victory over France
France
at Murrayfield; Stuart Hogg, Duncan Taylor and Tim Visser
Tim Visser
scoring tries in a 29–18 win. It was Scotland's first victory over France
France
since 2006, and also ended a 10 match losing streak against Les Bleus.[99] Scotland
Scotland
had a successful tour of Japan in June (winning both test matches),[100] and during the Autumn Internationals recorded a third consecutive win against Argentina (their seventh recognised win overall against the Pumas).[citation needed] In the 2017 Six Nations, Scotland
Scotland
saw a marked improvement in performance with three home wins and two away defeats. This was Vern Cotter's last tournament as head coach of Scotland, despite their also beating Australia
Australia
24-19 on the summer tour of the Southern Hemisphere. In their first 6Ns game, Scotland
Scotland
went in with confidence to win their first opening match for eleven years against Ireland in a close match at Murrayfield Stadium.[101][102] This followed with a defeat in Paris to France. Scotland
Scotland
secured a win over Wales
Wales
in their third game, Scotland's first since 2007. In the eagerly anticipated Calcutta Cup tie against England
England
at Twickenham,[103] however, Scotland
Scotland
were thrashed 61-21.[104] This was a record defeat against the English, and a result which ended their hopes of winning the Six Nations.[104] In the last week, Scotland
Scotland
defeated Italy at Murrayfield with a 29-0 victory, securing fourth place in the tournament table.[105] Gregor Townsend took over as head coach in June 2017. His first fixture as head coach was against Italy in Singapore where Scotland won 34-13. A week later Scotland
Scotland
defeated Australia
Australia
24-19 in Sydney, the second time in a row Scotland
Scotland
had won on Australian soil. The victory was made more notable by the list of absentees, such as Stuart Hogg and Grieg Laidlaw, who were in New Zealand
New Zealand
on Lions' duty. The tour was concluded by a 27-22 loss to Fiji in Suva. Victory over Samoa in November 2017[106] was followed by a breathtaking performance against New Zealand
New Zealand
at a sold-out Murrayfield. Tries from Jonny Gray
Jonny Gray
and Huw Jones brought Scotland
Scotland
to 17-22 with barely a minute to go, but it took a superb cover tackle from the All Blacks
All Blacks
fly-half Beaudan Barrett to prevent Stuart Hogg from scoring a winning try.[107] A week later Scotland
Scotland
registered a record win over the Wallabies, inflicting eight tries on the visitors in what was the Australian hooker Stephen Moore's final international game. Scotland
Scotland
won 53-24, their biggest ever margin of victory over Australia.[108] Thistle
Thistle
and the anthem[edit]

The thistle, the national emblem of Scotland
Scotland
since the reign of Alexander III of Scotland
Scotland
(1249–1286) and the emblem of the Scottish rugby team.

The thistle is the national flower, and also the symbol of the Scotland
Scotland
national rugby union team. According to legend the "guardian thistle" has played its part in the defence of Scotland
Scotland
against a night attack by Norwegian Vikings, one of whom let out a yell of pain when he stepped barefoot on a thistle, alerting the Scottish defenders. The Latin Nemo me impune lacessit
Nemo me impune lacessit
("No-one provokes me with impunity!" in English) is an ancient motto of the Kings of Scotland, and also of Scotland's premier chivalric order, the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, and of the Scots Guards (the latter both "belonging" to the monarch).[109] "Flower of Scotland" has been used since 1990 as Scotland's unofficial national anthem. It was written by Roy Williamson of The Corries in 1967, and adopted by the SRU to replace "God Save the Queen". In the first year of using "Flower of Scotland" as an anthem, Scotland
Scotland
walked onto the pitch at the beginning of the Five Nations Championship deciding match against England. This combination was explosive and Scotland
Scotland
went on to beat England
England
13–7 and win the Five Nations Championship with a Grand Slam. Strip[edit]

Scotland
Scotland
have traditionally worn navy blue jerseys, white shorts and blue socks. On the occasion that Scotland
Scotland
is the home side and the opposing team normally wears dark colours, Scotland
Scotland
will use its change strip. Traditionally this is a white jersey with navy blue shorts and socks. For a brief period, when Cotton Oxford were the shirt sponsors, the white shirt was replaced by a bright orange one with orange and blue hoops on the sleeves. This was first used against the New Zealand
New Zealand
Māori on 14 November 1998.[110] This change strip was replaced by the traditional white one just two years later. Also during this sponsorship deal, purple was introduced to the traditional blue jersey. This was a significant departure from the traditional colours of blue and white, although purple is inspired from the thistle flower. Kit manufacturers and shirt sponsors[edit] In September 1993, a sponsorship deal was announced with The Famous Grouse, resulting in a sponsors' name being added to Scottish international players' kit for the first time in addition to the jersey manufacturers' emblem.[111] In 1997 a new deal saw the Grouse logo appear on the Scotland
Scotland
jersey.[112] Further deals followed and it became the longest association with a sponsor in world rugby.[113] During this time, when Scotland
Scotland
played test matches in France, The Famous Grouse logo was replaced by the initias "TFG" due to the Evin law that bans any alcohol advertisement (including in sports events) in France.[114] In May 2007, after seventeen years, The Famous Grouse ended its shirt sponsorship with the team.[115] The Famous Grouse
The Famous Grouse
did maintain a low profile link to the Scottish Rugby Union
Scottish Rugby Union
by becoming the main spirit sponsor. This deal is thought to be worth a tenth of the original cost and forbids the Scottish Rugby Union
Scottish Rugby Union
from affiliating itself from any other whisky manufacturer. On 3 September 2007 it was announced that the then Rangers chairman Sir David Murray's company would become the new shirt sponsor, in a deal worth £2.7 million over three years.[116] In August 2011, the Royal Bank of Scotland
Scotland
took over as main sponsors of Scottish Rugby, after Sir David Murray's company decided to end their sponsorship. BT became the primary shirt sponsor as part of the £20 million deal signed in 2014.[117]

Notable players[edit] Four former Scotland
Scotland
players have been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame:

Gordon Brown, inducted 2001[125] Gavin Hastings, captain of the British Lions, full back, inducted 2003[126] Andy Irvine, full back, Scottish captain and British Lion, inducted 1999[127] Ian McGeechan, inducted 2005[128]

Ian McGeechan,[129] Bill Maclagan,[129] David Bedell-Sivright,[130] Jim Greenwood[131] and Gavin Hastings[132] are members of the World Rugby Hall of Fame.[129] Coaches[edit] Before 1971, there was no appointed coach of the Scotland
Scotland
team, the role being assumed by the captain. In 1971, the SRU appointed the first coach as "adviser to the captain". He was Bill Dickinson, a lecturer at Jordanhill College, and his contribution to Scottish rugby in the 1970s was immense.[17] Nairn McEwan took the reins in 1977 for three years[21] before the team was led by Jim Telfer in 1980.[23] Colin Telfer took over for a year before being succeeded by Derrick Grant in the autumn of 1985.[22][29] From 1988 onwards, Scotland
Scotland
was coached by either Jim Telfer or Ian McGeechan until 2003 when the Australian Matt Williams was appointed, becoming the first non Scot to coach the national side.[46] Scotland
Scotland
have appointed a further three non-Scottish coaches to lead the national side, the others being Scott Johnson, an Australian, Andy Robinson, an Englishman, and Vern Cotter from New Zealand. Robinson took the reins in 2009 after Frank Hadden stepped down. Robinson was no stranger to Scottish rugby as, like his predecessor Hadden, had been the head coach of Edinburgh
Edinburgh
Rugby and joint coach of Scotland
Scotland
A before being promoted head coach of the national side. Scott Johnson was Robinson's assistant coach when Robinson stood down in 2013, which ended in the result of Johnson being announced as Interim Head Coach for Scotland
Scotland
in 2013, taking the team through the 2013 Six Nations Championship
Six Nations Championship
and the 2013 South African Quadrangular Tournament.[133] Vern Cotter
Vern Cotter
was announced as Scottish Head coach but would not take up on the role until June 2014 as he one-year left on his contract with Clermont Auvergne. This meant that Scott Johnson would remain as Interim Coach until the end of that year's Six Nations Championship.[88] In August 2016 it was announced that Gregor Townsend would replace Vern Cotter
Vern Cotter
as Scotland
Scotland
head coach in June 2017 when his contract expires.[134]
