After 17 years at the pinnacle of athletics Ross spent his Uni years at Glasgow getting fat and throwing away his talent.
Upon returning to his home town of Stonehaven he took up rugby at the age of 21. Working through the 2s of Mackie FPRFC he finally made his break into the firsts a couple of years ago and has been cementing his place since then.
This year he has joined a gym in an attempt to move further infield and oust the aging and annoyingly good looking Michael Levack from the team.
Ross met his sponsor – Ex-player and long-time supporter Mark Horsburgh a few years ago in ‘the Green’ where their shared panache for alcohol and equal handsomeness started a long lasting friendship.
Words from the Illustrious Sponsor:
‘To strive for perfection takes years of hard work and training; but not for Ross and I. That's way he's the perfect player to be sponsored by me - Mark ‘The Horse’ Horsburgh’
