In 2017 following on from the Rio Games signed a contract for Edinburgh. This was an exciting step for Mark in order to excel his rugby career, the contract was a 3 year deal, meaning that it will end in 2020.
Mark was one of the most exciting players of the Olympic Games in Rio as his blistering pace and ever improving skills caused havoc for opposition defences as Team GB progressed to a historic Silver medal win in the Rugby Sevens.
Mark won his first full Scotland International cap in the Autumn Internationals in 2014 against Argentina, and following this, started every game in the 2015 Six Nations Tournament. Performances in the Six Nations earned Bennett selection to the 2015 Rugby World Cup, after which, he was nominated for '2015 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year'.
Port Elizabeth in 2013 was the site of his first Scotland Sevens caps and after just two appearances at the World Series, was named in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games squad where he emerged a stand out performer for Scotland.
Bennett continued his impressive development when he was awarded an apprentice contract by Clermont Auvergne in 2011.
