Mark Bennett

Edinburgh Rugby confirmed the signing of Scotland international centre and Olympic silver medallist Mark Bennett on a three-year deal in the summer of 2017.

The centre made his Scotland debut in the 41-31 victory over Argentina at BT Murrayfield in 2014, and has been capped 19 times, racking up 17 starts.

The Ayrshire-born centre was nominated for the 2015 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year after impressing in the Rugby World Cup, scoring three tries in four games.

Bennett has also tasted success in the abbreviated game and was selected for the Team GB Rugby Sevens side at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and returned home with a silver medal.

Bennett has scored 112 points in 64 Glasgow Warrior appearances.

The centre is a product of the Scottish Rugby age-grade system, having begun his career at Cumnock before switching to Ayr ahead of signing his first professional deal at Warriors.
