Biog:
Currently studying my LLB in Law at the University of Glasgow. Was a student at the High School of Glasgow for 8 years and part of the legendary 2011/12 side that went undefeated at home!
Began playing with Hawks at the tender age of 12 after being convinced I by a classmate and never looked back. Played school rugby for 7 years as well with Hawks U16/18, before finally joining up with the seniors for training in 2011. Missed a lot of the 2012/13 season with injuries (ankle, shoulder and concussions to my melon to name a few) so hopefully that’s me had my fair share!






The High School of Glasgow pupil travelled to Spain with the Scotland under-17 squad in 2010 and has also played for Glasgow at under-16 and under-18 levels.
He was a British age group shot put and discus champion in 2009/10 and has been Scottish Schools discus champion for the last six years. He achieved the youth commonwealth standard for discus and has been a member of Scotland's elite development squad for athletics and competes in the clours of Victoria Park Glasgow
