Hillhead-Jordanhill Rugby Football Club, also known as Hills, is a Scottish National League rugby union club based in Glasgow, Scotland. The club was founded in 1988 and have played at their current home ground, Hughenden in the West End of Glasgow since then. Despite their name the club is not located in either Hillhead or Jordanhill, although the pre-merger clubs did have historical links with these areas. Hughenden is located in Hyndland.
The club was formed by the merger of Jordanhill RFC (the rugby club of Jordanhill College) and Hillhead RFC, in 1988, although obviously these two clubs were older.
Hills is a thriving club and new players of all ages and abilities are always made to feel very welcome when they come along and join in. For the season 2010-2011 the club will run three competitive senior men's teams, one competitive senior ladies team and a social senior men's team. So there will be something for everyone who wants to be involved.
The culmination of season 2009-2010 saw the club win the Scottish Premiership Division Three championship. The following season the club consolidated their position back in Scottish Premiership Division Two with a new coaching team made up of Grant Sweenie and Colin Dickson as joint head coaches. The 2ndXV under Gareth Morris and Stuart Torbet had a strong season ending with promotion to the top reserve league.
Season 2011-12 saw a change to the coaching team with Grant Sweenie stepping down due to work commitments and another former Hills player, Derek Busby, taking over as head coach assisted by Colin Dickson. The 2ndXV also saw a change in coaching personnel with Gareth Morris stepping down due to work commitments with the new coaching team comprising club stalwarts Stuart Torbet and Murray Bell.
Since the restructuring of the game in Scotland, the route for club players to gain international honours is via the game's professional tier, therefore it is unlikely that any future player will be selected for international rugby directly from the club. As the club was formed from the merger of two earlier clubs, the list below has been structured to show those players selected from each of those clubs as well as former players of the merged club who have all gone on to receive higher honours.
