Scottish Rugby is deeply saddened to hear Scotland international Siobhan Cattigan has died.

The thoughts of all our people and players go out to Siobhan’s family and many teammates at Stirling County and Scotland at this incredibly difficult time.

Specialist Scottish Rugby employees are now providing on-going support to those most closely affected.

Siobhan Elizabeth Cattigan won 19 caps for Scotland between 2018 and 2021, with the back-row making her international debut against Wales during the 2018 Six Nations.

Siobhan’s passion for rugby began at the age of five, when she joined McLaren Minis which was based in her hometown of Callander. In addition, her older brother played for the minis section and her dad was also a coach at the club.

Siobhan previously cited that Scotland’s historic win against Ireland in 2018 was one of her personal highlights, with the side claiming an away victory for the first time in 12 years.

She went on to enjoy further notable success in a Scotland shirt, including a successful tour to South Africa in 2019 and the impressive draw against France during the 2020 Six Nations.

A talented back-row forward and all-round rugby player, Siobhan started all three matches of the 2021 Women’s Six Nations tournament, playing at number 8 against England, Italy and Wales.

Siobhan was most recently involved in the Rugby World Cup 2021 Europe Qualifiers squad, where she came off the bench in Scotland’s first win of the tournament against Spain.

She studied Criminology and Sociology at the University of Stirling before going on to receive a Master’s degree in Sports Psychology. She was a prominent member of the university’s rugby club, and captained her side to victory in the 2016/17 BUCS league.

Scottish Rugby extends its sincere condolences to Siobhan Cattigan’s family and friends.
