Headlining the signings is James Malcom who returns to the club after a few years in the professional ranks. The former Glasgow Warrior will link up with ex-teammate Pat MacArthur after two seasons across the pond in Major League Rugby.


Richie Simpson burst on to the scene for Ayr’s First XV last season and has earned his first contract with the Ayrshire Bulls. The Ayr/ Wellington youth prospect is a promising talent and fine example of the Ayr Rugby pathway from minis to FOSROC Super6.


Also joining the Bulls squad is former Scotland age-grade representative Will Hunt. The fly-half arrives from Cascais Rugby in Portugal.


Alongside the new signings, Rory Jackson returns to Millbrae on a full contract, having been previously involved as a Stage 3 Academy player.


Departing the squad is Joe Knight, Matt Minogue, Tom Lanni and Harry Murray. They join Rhodri Tanner who was announced as a leaver at the end of the Sprint Series. All at Ayr Rugby and the Ayrshire Bulls would like to wish them all the best with their future endeavours. Thank you for all of the effort you put in during your time at Millbrae.


There will be further squad announcements in the coming week.


The FOSROC Super6 Season kicks off next week, but the Bulls get their first run-around in pre-season action this evening. Pat MacArthur’s men welcome Stirling Wolves to Alloway, with action getting underway at 19.45. The match is free entry to all.
