Tom Ross - Having played for the Scottish Exiles at u18 level Tom was part of the Scotland U18 4,000 man training squad for the 5 nations. A mobile prop tom is comfortable at either tight or loose and can even play in the back row. Milan Browne lists Toms three greatest attributes as his ability at the breakdown, his unrivalled aggression and his ability to strap every part of his body. Tom's playing statistics include one disallowed try in 433 games of rugby. Tom lists his biggest influence as old SURFC coach Tam Moore. Tam Moore was quite a handful in his day and would often hit up to three rucks in a game before collapsing because of his massive kite. Rumours have it that Ross will be moving onto Madras RFC for the 2013/14 as player/coach.
