Scottish Rugby


The late Eric Arne Melling (SH 1933-36) has been awarded a posthumous International Cap for his contributions to Scottish Rugby. The award is one of several by the Scottish Rugby Union Custodian Board to honour players who represented their country in matches that, at the time, did not carry Test Cap status.

Scottish Rugby Union Custodian Board President Colin Rigby said: “Those individuals who wore the thistle with pride and distinction, whether in Services or Victory internationals during and after the Second World War, or who played under the label of a ‘Scotland XV’ against other nations, will now join the fabled ranks of the 1,140 other men to have been capped by Scotland since 1871.’
