GMS sponsored the select Bill McLaren Foundation XVs in a special match against the UAE Rugby National XV earlier this year, with the match an integral component of the UAE Rugby Asian 5 Nations 2013 preparations. Much to the delight of GMS, the select team beat the UAE team, 50/12.
Bill McLaren was known throughout the world as ‘The Voice of Rugby’ thanks to his distinctive tone and imaginative commentary of the game. The Foundation was set up in his memory and continues to be a prominent charitable organization globally.
Duncan Anderson, chief executive at GMS, says: “Congratulations to both teams for a great match and well done the select team! We were delighted to contribute to the Bill McLaren Foundation, which encourages young people throughout the world to get involved in the game of rugby union and the sporting values that come with it. If we as a company assisted the Foundation while helping the UAE prepare for an important competition, then we scored twice.”
