On Friday 28 August, Scotland’s rugby team created their own version of Baywatch on St Andrews’ very own West Sands.
This video was uploaded on to the Scottish rugby squad’s YouTube channel the day before the team’s test match against Italy. The match, held at the BT Murrayfield stadium on Saturday 29 August, was given a beach theme and the David Hasselhoff inspired clip received thousands of views online.
Filmed whilst the team were training in St Andrews, the video features the Baywatch theme song and captioning typical of an episode of the hit programme which starred actors such as Pamela Anderson and once named as the world’s most popular TV series.
The team then went on to secure victory in their world cup warm up match against Italy, beating the team 48-7 and running in six tries.
This was their first match together since Italy defeated Scotland during the six nations tournament.
