Hamish Watson

Hamish Watson moved north from the Leicester Tigers Academy for a centrally held Scotland 7s contract in the summer of 2011 before being approached to join the club's elite development programme, after a string of impressive showings in the back-row.

The back-row came through the Scotland age-grade and sevens set-up, before winning his first full international cap in the 2015 RBS 6 Nations game against Italy at BT Murrayfield.

Watson, who has surpassed the 50-cap mark for Edinburgh, signed a two-year contract extension with the club ahead of the 2017/18 season.
