Lewis Young

Lewis Young joined the Scotland 7s set-up as an elite development player in September 2012, having been noticed as a skilled sevens specialist on the Borders Kings of the Sevens circuit, where he played for Jed-Forest.

His contract was moved from elite development player to full-time professional in June 2013.

His first travels with the squad were to Hong Kong for the seventh leg of the 2012/13 HSBC Sevens World Series. Though he didn't compete in the main event he was a member of the Scottish Barbarians side who were Plate runners-up in the Hong Kong Football Club Tens.

Young won his first Scotland 7s cap when he travelled with the team to London for the final round of the 2013/14 HSBC Sevens World Series. That weekend he was handed his first start in his side's 31-5, victory over Portugal, the second match in their group. He contributed to the scoreboard in this tie with a blistering run to beat his outside man and cross the whitewash.

Lewis and Gregor Young were the first set of twins to wear the Scotland jersey and play at the same time. This feat was achieved 11 minutes into Scotland 7s' victory over Portugal in the 2014 London 7s.
