Lee Jones earned the chance to sign for Edinburgh Rugby with a string of strong performances both for the Scotland 7s team in the HSBC Sevens World Series and for his previous club Selkirk. He then moved west along the M8 in February 2014 for a loan period with Glasgow Warriors.
His pace, a strength in the contact and an unquestionable eye for the try line earned the young Borderer his first full Scotland cap as the starting winger against England in the nation's opening match of the 2012 RBS 6 Nations campaign at Murrayfield Stadium in front of a capacity crowd. To date he has won four caps for Scotland.
Arguably, Jones' rugby prowess lies in the abbreviated game. He made his international debut in sevens when Scotland opened their 2009/10 World Series campaign in Dubai and went on to be selected for the 2010 Commonwealth Games squad in Delhi.
He was named in his second Commonwealth Games squad when Stephen Gemmell included him in the Glasgow 2014, Team Scotland side. Across the two multi-sport events he has scored a whopping 14 tries.
Jones was selected for the opening legs of the 2015/16 World Series in Dubai and South Africa, and was particularly impressive in the latter picking up the DHL Impact Player of the Tournament award after tallying up five tries, 15 tackles, seven breaks, 25 carries and four offloads. In the same tournament, he also surpassed the 250-point and 50-try mark against Samoa in the opening tie of day two.
Lee has also played for Scotland under-18, under-19 and under-20 and the Borders’ under-16 and under-18 teams.
