Steven Lawrie

Steven Lawrie made his international debut off the bench against Samoa in the summer 2013 quadrangular series in South Africa.

He played for Scotland at under-19 and under-21 levels, joined Edinburgh Rugby as an apprentice in 2005 and moved on to a full contract in summer 2007. His debut for Edinburgh was as a replacement in the Celtic League victory against Leinster at Donnybrook in November that year.

Another replacement appearance followed in the next game (against Glasgow), but he had to wait more than a year for his first start for Edinburgh: coincidentally, that also was against Leinster at Donnybrook in the Heineken Cup match in January 2006.

Debut for Scotland A in 2010

He made his Scotland A debut in the 25-0 win over USA Eagles at Netherdale in November 2010, and came off the bench in the 11-3 success against Italy A in February 2011.

In 2009, Lawrie moved from Edinburgh Rugby for two seasons, seeking regular game time in the English Championship with Doncaster Knights, captaining the side in his second season, before returning to Edinburgh Rugby in time for the 2011/12 season.
Sadly a knee injury disrupted his return that season but his credentials were underlined in the spring of 2013, as the starting hooker in Scotland A's 13-9 win at Kingston Park (the side's first win on English soil on the sixth time of trying).

He first played for Scotland under-21 as a substitute in the February 2005 match against France in Bourgoin. He also had replacement appearances in the home matches against Ireland, Italy, and Wales that year as well as three of the world championship games in Argentina, scoring a try against Australia. The Stewart’s Melville College former pupil, a physical education graduate from Edinburgh University, is a member of Scottish Rugby’s National Academy.

Steve captained the Edinburgh under-18, under-19 and under-20 teams who won their respective district championships in successive years (2002 to 2004), and he played for Scotland under-19 in season 2002-2003.
