Loosehead Prop

Scotland Rugby Media Access

Hawick-born Rory Sutherland made his Scotland debut against Ireland in the 2016 Six Nations, making two further appearances (including a first start) in victories over Japan later that year.

He joined Edinburgh Rugby on a FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy deal in 2014 as a reward for his form with club side Gala. While still in the Academy, Sutherland established himself as a mainstay in the Edinburgh squad and was awarded a full professional contract ahead of the 2015/16 season.

After a series of injuries, he returned to the international fold in following injury and featured in Scotland’s Guinness Six Nations squad for 2020, earning a first international cap in three-and-a-half years against Ireland in Dublin and going on to display such an outstanding level of performance that a British & Irish Lions call-up followed.

Sutherland earned two full Test caps on that tour to South Africa, the first Scottish prop to do so since the great Tom Smith in 2005.
