Scottish Exiles

Scottish Exiles under-17sYou don’t have to live in Scotland to be eligible to play rugby for the Scotland team.

If you, either of your parents or one of your grandparents were born in Scotland then the Scottish Exiles could be your route to international rugby. Sean Lamont, Jim Hamilton and Hugo Southwell all took this pathway.

There are two ways to get involved:

  1. register your own details
  2. your school or club nominates you

To register or nominate just email us at

Scottish Exiles registration form (Microsoft Word)

What happens once you register?

After you register, you will be invited to attend a regional development group training session. If you are selected then you are only three steps away from international rugby.

Step 1: Scotland representative squads at Under 17 or 18 and under 20
Step 2: Under 16,17 or 18 and under 20 pathway squads
Step 3: Regional Development Group
