Five tries that have shaped my career

Five tries that have shaped my career

After today putting pen to paper on a new deal with his boyhood club, Blair Kinghorn sat down to discuss five tries that have shaped his career so far.

From breaking international records to kickstarting his Edinburgh Rugby career under Head Coach Richard Cockerill, the 24-year-old fullback looks back on some memorable scores.


My first try for Scotland

“It was against Ireland at the Aviva in the Guinness Six Nations. It was my first start for Scotland and my mum and dad were both there.

"To get a try on my first start and only second cap was a great feeling!”

My hat-trick against Italy

“My hat-trick against Italy was an absolutely amazing feeling. I was the first person to score a hat-trick for Scotland in a Six Nations game since Ivan Tukalo in 1989.

"To be able to do that at home at BT Murryfield was brilliant. There was a picture in the newspaper of me hugging my cousin in the stand, and I think he’s got that framed and put up on the wall – so that’s really special."

My first try under Cockers

“I scored a try against Cardiff Blues at Arms Park in 2017 and it was Cockers first game in charge at the club

“I scored in the corner straight off a set-piece move from the scrum, and I felt like that was the year I really kickstarted and had the most personal development in my own game."
