Biography

Stuart won his first Scotland cap against Italy in the build up to the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Stuart returned from Scotland's 2016 summer tour to Japan, where he started both matches at hooker and made a telling impact, his outstanding leadership qualities have also been recognised and has earned him the co-captaincy at Edinburgh for the 2016/2017 season. 

Stuart took the decision to change from back row to hooker in 2013 and his back row experience allows him to bring his open field skills to his new position. A bonus for any team. 

Stuart works continuously on his double career track and is interested in all aspects of business but with a particular passion for flying. He is hours away from completing his Private Pilots Licence. He often joins our Performance Coaching team in presenting workshops around attitude, leadership and performance.
