Sarah Beaney Cup

Overview Honours Roll Related trophies Sources Current Season

Overview

It is the main knock-out competition for scottish women's clubs.
In 2005 the cup was named after Sarah Beaney, a Murrayfield Wanderers and Scotland player, tragically dead in a car crash.
Unfortunately not all the results and even not all the winners are known.
It is probable that the cup was first played in 1993 when the scottish clubs left the british WRFU to form the SWRU (Scottish Women's Rugby Union), but nothing is known about the first editions.

The losers in the first two rounds play for the bowl, while the losers of the third round plays for the plate.

Since the season 2016/17 also a Premier Development Cup is played, during the Six Nations tournament, to let the Premier League teams play while the best players are busy with the national teams.
