After his first marriage ended, Carmichael married Alison Brand, a member of the women’s rugby team he was coaching (she also played prop for Scotland). She survives him along with their children Ruairidh and Rhona, who are pursuing careers in computing and art respectively.
Not to be personal about this, more a general observation. But the children of two international props are going to be slim, gazelle-like creatures?
Genes do matter after all.
