Women’s Rugby

The women’s section was started in 1995 by ex-Glasgow University player Liz Stewart. Most of the women playing in that first ever team had never picked up a rugby ball before.

Since then, the team has risen through the leagues, winning the Scottish Premier League for the first time in 2010/11 and again in 2012/13 – 2013/14 – 2017/18. The team gripped the Sarah Beaney Cup again in 2012/13 – 2016/17- 2017/18

Over the years, several players from the club have gained international honours for Scotland Women 15’s and 7’s, such as former Scotland captain Susie Brown and the current most-capped player Heather Lockhart. Most recently, Hillhead Jordanhill players – Jade Konkel, Lindsey Smith, Louise McMillan, Hannah Smith, Siobhan McMillan, Abi Evans played for Scotland.
