Jonny Gray became the 1050th Scotland cap when he was introduced as a replacement for his brother Richie in the second-half of Scotland's Autumn Test against South Africa in November 2013.
After signing professionally for Glasgow Warriors in 2012 at the age of 18, Jonny Gray became the 1050th Scotland cap when he was introduced for his older brother Richie in the second half of Scotland’s Test against South Africa in November 2013.
He scored a try on his first Scotland start a year later (Richie also scored in that same fixture) in a 41-31 win over Argentina at BT Murrayfield and has already featured at two Rugby World Cups (2015 and 2019), racing to a 50th cap in the Guinness Six Nations match against Wales in 2019.
A linchpin of national squads since that 2013 debut, Gray’s club career has been equally impressive, helping Glasgow Warriors win their inaugural trophy by way of the 2014/15 PRO12 title, before a move to Exeter Chiefs brought with it a Premiership and European Champions Cup double in the 2019/20 season.
