A Sad Loss For London Scottish:

Obituary: Iain Laughland (1935-2020)

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Iain Laughland on Sunday 9th August. He was 84; our heartfelt commiserations go out to his wife Ann and two children. A regular attendee at matches until recently, he will be missed not only by the players and officials of his own era but to those of subsequent generations too.

Playing either at centre or fly-half, Logie won 31 caps between 1959 and 1967, alongside sometimes as many as six other London Scots, and captained the Scotland team that retained the Calcutta Cup in 1966. He was club captain twice, and was the “general” of the great club Sevens sides of the 1960-65 era.

He served as Scottish Rugby Union president from 2000-01, and was inducted into the London Scottish Hall of Fame in 2007.

A full obituary will follow.
