Matt Scott

Matt Scott penned a two-year deal in Fenruary 2018 to re-join his hometown club after two seasons in the English Premiership with Gloucester.

Capped 39-times for Scotland, the 27-year-old started his career with Edinburgh in 2011 and amassed 74 appearances for the capital club before moving south to join the Cherry and Whites. 

A product of Currie High School, Scott’s early career saw him represent Edinburgh district, as well as Scotland at U19 and U20 levels.

The centre signed his first professional contract with Edinburgh in April 2011 and made his competitive debut for the club against Cardiff Blues in September of the same year.

Scott earned his first call-up to the Scotland squad ahead of the 2012 6 Nations and gained his first cap as a replacement in the 32-14 defeat against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

In the same year, the centre made his first international start in the historic 9-6 victory over Australia in New South Wales and continued as first choice for the other wins over Fiji and Samoa.

Scott played a key role during Edinburgh’s successful 2011/12 season in which they became the first Scottish team to qualify for a European Cup semi-final.
