Sir Ian McGeechan: Doing the world class basics

Monday, 19 July

Sir Ian McGeechan is distinguished as one of Rugby’s most popular and well regarded figures, most notably for being a true legend of the world’s most famous touring team - the British & Irish Lions. He is only person to have tasted series success as both a player and a coach.

During his playing career Ian won 32 caps for Scotland. He toured with the British Lions as a player in 1974 in the unbeaten tour to South Africa and in 1977 to New Zealand playing all eight tests. During his coaching career he spent five years with Northampton Saints after which he was appointed Head Coach at Scotland.

A PE and Geography teacher by profession, Ian has a great empathy with players, an ability to get the right people around him and is incredibly knowledgeable about the game. His quiet passion and determination to achieve excellence offer some fascinating insights about the nature of success, not just in sport but also within business.
