Blair Kinghorn became the 1091st player to represent Scotland when he took the field as replacement in Scotland's 2018 Calcutta Cup victory over England.
Former Edinburgh Academy pupil Blair Kinghorn made his Edinburgh Rugby debut as an 18-year-old in their 2015 Guinness PRO12 game with Zebre, his eye-catching club performances from then seeing him named in the Scotland squad for the 2018 Natwest Six Nations, where he enjoyed a memorable debut in the 25-13 Calcutta Cup win at BT Murrayfield.
Kinghorn scored a try on his first start in the same championship, against Ireland, and was named as part of the 2019 Rugby World Cup squad, where he earned two further caps.
The youngest Edinburgh centurion to date (aged 24 years and 117 days in March 2021), Kinghorn’s ability to play full-back, stand-off and on the wing offers a versatility added to by a proficiency from the tee that has led to 100 international points as a realistic target in the coming months ahead.
Through the ranks…
