Aberdeen Grammar land former Scotland A star Corsar

The highly-regarded prop has decided to combine playing and coaching in Aberdeen

Rugby results round-up

Aberdeen Grammar Rugby have made a significant signing with the recruitment of former Scotland A prop, Stuart Corsar, who has joined the Granite City organisation as a Club Development Officer for the new season.

The 28 year-old front row man, a former pupil of Inverurie Academy, who launched his rugby career at Garioch, had been playing professionally with Doncaster Knights, but has now decided to return to his roots in a dual role.

The move has been welcomed by Grammar coach, Alex Duncan, who told STV: "Stuart is a quality player and it is terrific news that he has joined us, and will combine playing and coaching."

Previously, Corsar represented Caledonia at every age-group level, and his under-19 international honours included his notable participation in all his country's fixtures at the 2003 World Championship in France. He subsequently took part in all five matches of the under-21 Six Nations Championship campaign in 2005 when the Scots achieved victories against Ireland (for the first time), Italy and England.

Corsar's rumbustious style and take-no-prisoners approach soon earned him a professional contract with Glasgow Warriors and he made six appearances for the Scottish professional side in his maiden season, including a couple of Heineken Cup games.

And when he was selected for the Scotland A side and made his debut in June, 2008, playing as a replacement in the Churchill Cup win against Canada in Ottawa, it seemed only a matter of time before he gained elevation to the full Scotland ranks.

However, Corsar decided to search for other opportunities - he took a sports coaching and development course at Aberdeen College and worked as a leisure and gym attendant at Garioch Sports Centre - and has now shown his commitment to rugby, on and off the pitch, by signing up with Aberdeen Grammar.

One suspects that he will make life a misery for many opposing props when the new Scottish Premiership season commences in August.
