The women’s section was started in 1995 by ex-Glasgow University player Liz Stewart. Most of the women playing in that first ever team had never picked up a rugby ball before.
Since then, the team has risen through the leagues, winning the Scottish Premier League for the first time in 2010/11 and again in 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2017/18. The team gripped the Sarah Beaney Cup again in 2012/13, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2021/22.
Over the years, several players from the club have gained international honours for Scotland Women 15’s and 7’s, including forrmer Scotland captain Susie Brown. Most recently, Hillhead Jordanhill players – Heather Lockhart, Jade Konkel, Lindsey Smith, Louise McMillan, Hannah Smith, Siobhan McMillan, Abi Evans, Mairi McDonald and Evie Wills played for Scotland.
The club now has 2 women’s teams. The 1XV compete in the Women’s Premiership, with our newly established 2XV competing in West 2. There really is a team for everyone at Hills.
