Following a review of its strategy, the governing body is looking to recruit new volunteer Board members to join the existing Chair and Board to move the organisation forward and engage in the future of the sport. This is a unique opportunity to join a dynamic board structure as the sport looks to implement its strategy, building a robust and sustainable participation base in Scotland and running a number of representative teams, including Under 16’s, Under 19’s, Students, Wheelchair Rugby League and senior team who will look to qualify for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England in qualifiers in late October, early November.
