Tommy Seymour

Tommy Seymour enjoyed a fine start to his international rugby career at Murrayfield, scoring two tries in Scotland's opening 2013 viagogo Autumn Test 42-17 success against Japan.His first try in the RBS 6 Nations Championship came in Scotland's agonising 17-19 loss to France at Murrayfield in March 2014.

His fourth try for Scotland came in the opening match of the 2014-15 season as Argentina were put to the sword 41-31. He followed that a a week later with another wonder interception try against New Zealand, and then collecting a crossfield kick from Finn Russell against Tonga he completed the series with a third try in three viagogo Autumn Tests.

Tommy made the short hop across the Irish sea from RaboDirect PRO12 side Ulster to become a summer signing at Glasgow Warriors in advance of season 2011/12.

The winger boasts a rich and varied backstory, having been born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee before moving to Northern Ireland via a spell in Dubai, where his father was based for work.

A pleasing aspect to Seymour's eclectic heritage is that he's Scottish qualified, his mother, Sue, being a born and bred Glaswegian. He was one of nine uncapped players named in Scotland's 2013 summer tour squad to South Africa and made his debut against the host nation in Nelspruit. A tenth uncapped player eventually was blooded on the tour.
