Tommy Seymour

Tommy Seymour made the short hop across the Irish sea from Glasgow's GUINNESS PRO12 rivals Ulster to become a summer signing in advance of season 2011/12.

He enjoyed a fine start to his international rugby career at Murrayfield, scoring two tries in Scotland's opening 2013 viagogo Autumn Test 42-17 success against Japan. His first try in the RBS 6 Nations Championship came in Scotland's agonising 17-19 loss to France at Murrayfield in March 2014.

His fourth try for Scotland came in the opening match of the 2014-15 season as Argentina were put to the sword 41-31. He followed that a a week later with another wonder interception try against New Zealand, and then collecting a crossfield kick from Finn Russell against Tonga he completed the series with a third try in three viagogo Autumn Tests.

The winger boasts a rich and varied backstory, having been born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee before moving to Northern Ireland via a spell in Dubai, where his father was based for work.

A pleasing aspect to Seymour's eclectic heritage is that he's Scottish qualified, his mother, Sue, being a born and bred Glaswegian.
