Henry Pyrgos

Experienced scrum-half, Henry Pyrgos, signed for Edinburgh in the summer of 2018 having spent eight-years at rivals Glasgow Warriors.

A former pupil of Bryanston School in Dorset, Pyrgos represented Scottish Exiles at under-18, under-19, and under-20 levels, as well as Northampton Saints’ under-18 and under-19 teams and, during a visit to New Zealand, he was included in the Wanganui province’s youth squad.

The scrum-half made his Scotland debut as a second-half substitute for Mike Blair against New Zealand in the first Autumn Test of 2012.

The same switch was made in the next game against South Africa in which Pyrgos scored his first try for Scotland, before adding a second as part of a stunning fightback, which helped his country post a 21-19 victory over Argentina in the third Test of Scotland's 2014 summer tour.

Pyrgos has so far earned 27 caps for his country and will look to play a major role as Edinburgh compete in both the Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup.
