The Calcutta Cup will be on display at Millbank on Saturday at a family fun day hosted by Caithness RFC.

The famous rugby trophy is coming north along with current Scottish female internationalist Panashe Muzambe.

People will have a chance to take selfies with the cup, which Scotland's men retained earlier this year following their 20-17 win over England at Murrayfield.

Muzambe, the first black woman to play for Scotland, has seven caps. The 26-year-old utility forward, who moved to Scotland as a 12-year-old, has played her club rugby with Watsonians and Garioch.

Thurso is the latest stop in the Calcutta Cup's current national tour, in the custody of Graham Law, Scotland's team media manager.

Caithness RFC president Frank Bremner said: "We're looking forward to welcoming Graham and Panashe, and people are very welcome to come along to see and get a picture taken with the cup.

"We've got plenty going on, with a junior tournament, touch rugby, a barbecue and Sumo wrestling.

"We'll also be handing out the club awards from last season."

The fun day gets under way at 2pm.
