HIGHLAND Rugby Club have announced it is planning to enter a third team into the Scottish Rugby league set-up next season.
President Graham Findlater announced they are looking to enter Highland 3rd XV into Caledonia North Four.
As well as their first team playing in National One, Highland also field a 2nd XV who play in Caledonia North Two, who finished second in the division this season.
If Highland’s bid is successful, it will create an Inverness derby in Caledonia North Four as Inverness Craig Dunain currently play in the division.
The club are also looking at revamping its girls set-up.
This season was ruled null and void with no champions crowned or promotion or relegation from any division as a result.
Highland have also reported that it has furloughed two members of staff as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
But Findlater is confident the club will be in a strong position once the virus has passed.
He said: “Rugby will return and it is important that, we as a club, are in a position to react to any changing circumstances in these unprecendented times.
