The three nines and kings of the sevens – Paul Cranston – #104

My guest this week is former President of Jed-Forest RFC – Paul Cranston.

This interview was recorded in March of 2023 and we talked about Roy Laidlaw, Garry Armstrong and Greig Laidlaw – the three 9’s – who all came from Jed and went on to play for and captain Scotland and then represent the Lions, Paul’s rugby life playing for Hawick and Jed, the incredible Sevens tournaments held in the borders and a return to regional rugby.

Paul is fantastic company and his love of the game is absolute – I hope you enjoy!
