Players Association Needed For Scottish Rugby Says Hassanein
Written by RockSport on January 12, 2018
Scotland’s top rugby professionals would benefit from an “incredibly important” players’ body, according to the head of the International Rugby Players Association.
Omar Hassanein, the group’s chief executive, believes representative players’ associations are “essential”.
Scotland is the only Tier One nation where no such organisation exists.
“We’ve tried to work with Scottish Rugby on this over the years, in recent times quite a bit,” Hassanein said.
“The player leaders in Scotland are certainly interested in having one. ”
