Gareth Rees played international rugby for Canada at fly-half and full back. Rees played for several British club sides, including Oxford University, Wasps and Harlequins. He won 55 caps for Canada, captaining them on 23 occasions and scoring 487 test points. Rees played in all of the first four Rugby World Cup tournaments, the 1987, 1991, 1995 and 1999. He retired after the 1999 finals becoming the only player to play at the first four Rugby World Cups. Gareth is now Commercial Director for Canadian Rugby. In October 2011, Rees received arguably his greatest honour with induction to the IRB Hall of Fame.



Iain Morrison made 15 appearances for the Scotland. He played flanker in the mid-nineties, after securing 2 Cambridge Blues in victorious campaigns in 1983 and 1984. He played club rugby for London Scottish, and featured in the successful London Scottish 7s team which won the Middlesex 7s in 1990. Iain made his international debut on 16 January 1993 against Ireland at Murrayfield, and then played in the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa when they were beaten in the last moments of the match against France. In between, Iain played in Scotland’s first win in Paris for 26 years, in a Grand Slam decider at Twickenham when Scotland was out-foxed by Oxford’s  and England’s Stuart Barnes, and captained the BaaBaas in the Boxing Day fixture at Leicester. Iain made his last international appearance against New Zealand. Iain’s son played for Cambridge in the 2013 Varsity Match. Iain is now a sports journalist in Edinburgh.


Iain and Gareth enjoyed each other’s company during a somewhat heated exchange in a warm up game for the 1995 World Cup; let’s hope they get on better in the Spirit of Rugby.
