Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Scotland rugby players have names on their shirts?

The decision to include names on Scotland rugby players' shirts serves a practical purpose. It allows fans, coaches, referees, and television presenters to readily identify each player on the field. While some argue that this identification is already achieved through position-specific numbers, it's worth noting that not everyone is familiar with rugby or the players. For newcomers to the game, be it fans or even players themselves, having names on the shirts can be immensely helpful. It provides clarity, especially for those who may not know who is in the starting lineup or even part of the wider squad.
