Craig is deeply passionate about providing grassroots rugby a learning experience similar to the professional game. 

"Rugby has always been a huge part of my life. It has given me memories, friends and opportunities that’ll last a life time. I know that unless a player is selected to represent their regional team or Scotland, there are few opportunities where players can take their performance to the next level. As I progress through my teaching & coaching career, I want to use rugby as a vehicle to create good people. Our highly experienced and professional coaching team at Apex Rugby Academy are committed to fulfil this."
