Alex Dunbar

Alex Dunbar won his first cap for the senior Scotland team in their opening match of the quadrangular tournament in South Africa in 2013, against Samoa and followed up the next week with his first try against South Africa in Nelspruit.

He then scored a tremendous second-half brace of tries as Scotland posted their first win in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship by 21-20 against Italy in Rome, and was back on the scoresheet later that year in the Autumn test win over Tonga in Kilmarnock.

Dunbar looked set cement his already firm grasp on the midfield berth in the 2015 RBS 6 Nations before injury struck on the morning of the team's departure for England for the Calcutta Cup clash, which ruled him out of the tournament and Rugby World Cup.

With his knee rehab complete, Dunbar made a welcome return for club and country almost a year to the date later, returning mid-championship to start against France and Ireland, registering his fifth international try against the latter.

Injury forced dunbar to miss the summer tour that year but he returned to start every match of the 2016/17 autumn tests and RBS 6 Nations, featuring in all eight tests and scoring Scotland's opening try against Ireland in the spring.
