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 Scotland’s other professional team, 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 debut in international sevens when Scotland opened their 2009/10 World Series campaign in Dubai in December and went on to be selected for the 2010 Commonwealth Games squad in Delhi.
He was then 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. Previously, he had played for Scotland in three age groups, under-18, under-19 and under-20.
Lee has also played for Borders’ under-16 and under-18 teams.
