Susie Brown

Susannah Clare Brown has made 62 appearances for Scotland, playing in all five matches in both the 2006 and 2010 Rugby World Cups.

She has also played for Scottish Students and Scotland under-23, and she was in the teams who won the 2005 Dubai sevens tournament and were runners-up the following year. She has also represented Wooden Spoon 7s, winning the Middlesex 7s at Twickenham in June 2011.

In June 2012 Susie travelled to Cape Town with the Nomads, playing in two Tests against South Africa.

A break from international rugby in the 2007/8 season saw Susie returning to university to complete her MSc in Human Nutrition with Specialisation in Public Health Nutrition after which she returned to the squad for the 2009 January Test victory against Sweden.

Susie led her country for the first time, on the occasion of her 46th cap, against Spain in the Madrid friendly in January 2011 and gained her 50th cap against England in the penultimate match of the 2011 RBS 6 Nations championship. Injury prevented her from playing in the November 2011 victory over the Netherlands in Amsterdam but she travelled with the team to share captaincy duties with Tracy Balmer.

Her final tournament for Scotland was the FIRA Rugby World Cup qualifier in April 2013 where she scored the fourth and bonus point tries in the wins over the Netherlands and Sweden. She retired from international and club rugby in May 2013.

Susie played in three tournaments during the debut Scotland Women 7s season in 2012.

She played for Boroughmuir High School, Glasgow University and Hillhead / Jordanhill before joining Richmond. Now a deputy project manager in the Diabetes Trials Unit at the University of Oxford, she enjoys 10k runs on behalf of her favourite charity, the Parkinson’s Disease Society and is the first female ambassador fo the Pigbarians charity rugby team.
