Date of birth3 February 1993
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.
Bennett has continued his impressive development since he was awarded an apprentice contract by Clermont Auvergne in 2011.
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.
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'.
