DisciplineTight Head Prop
Zander has made rapid progress playing in what is often described as the hardest position on the rugby pitch – tighthead prop – since he joined the Glasgow Warriors in 2014. Zander scored the winning try for Scotland under-20s in their win over Wales in the 2015 Junior 6 Nations. In the 2016 6 Nations aged 20, Zander became the fourth youngest prop in Scottish history to be capped for his country, and the youngest to represent Scotland for more than half a century. Zander’s work rate around the pitch and all-round skill set marks him as a player with a very exciting future in the game of rugby.
Outside of rugby, Zander has a very varied skill set, having won the 2010 Scottish Downhill Mountain Bike Championship (2010), he was also in the National Boys Choir (2008) and is a qualified lifeguard.
