Minety Moment

Bonus point win away at Melksham, 2013, narrowly missing out of winning the league. Massive effort from the team to do all we could to win the league, but another fixture shock result pipped us to it.

Player Bio

Duncan joined Minety in 2012, moving down from his home town of Strathaven, Scotland. He found a familiar home at Minety, the village club being remarkably similar to his lifelong Strathaven RFC. An email to Captain Tom Fitzcharles asking about the club was ideally timed and Duncan gained his first Minety cap that week in a pre-season clash away at Gosford All-Blacks. His introduction to coach Huw Jones, Duncan attempted to be easy going with playable postions "wing, full -back, anywhere in the backs...I've played scrum half...". Jones focused in on the last words and all of a sudden, in classic Minety style, Duncan was starting scrum half.


Heavily misbranded as a scrum half, Duncan settled into his first few seasons there before squad selection would allow for him to move back out to his natural positions of wing and full-back.


Notorious for his tackling reliability and supporting lines Duncan style of playing in the back three sees him largely absent from traditional positioning and always on hand in the action.


Vice-Captain in 2014 to Steve Brown was a tough season with injury and availabilty holding Minety back from continuing on their supreme from from the previous season.


A massive fan of touch rugby, Duncan ran the summer touch program for a few years.


Winner of Young Player of the Year (2012) and Coaches Player of the Year (2019),  Duncan has relished his time at Minety.


A graduate of Product Design Engineering (MEng) from Glasgow Universty and Glasgow School of Art.
