90 years, 90 seconds... One amazing opportunity.

Think you & your friends have got what it takes to be a commentator?

The Bill McLaren Foundation, in conjunction with Scottish Rugby, have joined forces to offer all schools and clubs the chance to win!

Bill McLaren would have turned 90 on October 16th 2013. To mark the occasion, we are asking all clubs and schools to submit a 90 second video & commentary of your favourite activity. This doesn’t have to be rugby - Bill taught lots of other activities from athletics to country dancing and many in between!

We’re splitting the competition in two - primary and secondary age groups and have some great prizes up for grabs...

The Prize - The top 10 schools / clubs (5 from both primary and secondary age groups) will receive a £500 cash prize plus some special behind the scenes prizes involving Scottish teams. You will also be invited to Murrayfield to commentate on 90 seconds of Grand Slam footage... With the two winning teams being invited to broadcast in May.

The judges will include Bill’s daughter Linda Lawson, Scottish rugby legend Chris Paterson, respected radio rugby commentator Bill Johnstone, Scottish Rugby’s Dominic McKay and a representative from the BBC.

Updates including helpful hints and top tips will be posted here so make sure you continue to check back for the latest news!
