Your first club was Oban?

Yes. My younger brother Fergus (now at Glasgow Warriors) and I went along when I was seven. Mum got involved too and played for their women’s team.

Have you played lots of different positions?

In U15s and U16s I was a centre, then I moved to the second row and then No 8, where I’ve stayed.

When did you join Edinburgh?

Straight from school at the start of last season. I play for Boroughmuir, too, and it’s fantastic there.

When did you first play representative rugby?

I played for Scotland U17 a year early, then U18s and this is my second year with Scotland U20. Going to the U20 World Championship in New Zealand was the best experience of my life.

What are your aims now?

At the beginning of this season I had my eye on a start for Edinburgh, which I got against Leinster. Now I want to be involved as much as I can.

RW verdict: An Elite Development Player at Edinburgh, this 19-year-old has a bright future in the back row.
