Hunter-Hill joins Scottish on loan

BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy second-row Callum Hunter-Hill has joined London Scottish on a short-term loan.

The 19-year-old is a Scotland U20 international and recently made his Glasgow Warriors debut in October against Zebre in the Guinness PRO12.

Previously, the lock received 10 caps at U18 level, five of which he took charge of the team as captain.

He has also captained Edinburgh at U17 and U18 level as well as appearing for Edinburgh Rugby A against their Glasgow Warriors counterparts, and has since represented Glasgow Warriors in non-league fixtures.

In the summer of 2015 Hunter-Hill travelled to the Canterbury High Performance Unit in New Zealand on the prestigious MacPhail Scholarship.

After arriving in London he will be reacquainted with fellow age-grade internationalists Cameron Fenton, Ally Miller, Hugh Fraser, Tom Galbraith and Patrick Kelly.

Also at the club are Scottish Rugby's Head of International Age-Grade Rugby, Sean Lineen, who has taken up the role of Director of Rugby, and former Scotland Under 20s Coach John Dalziel as Forwards Coach.

Hunter-Hill is looking forward to a new challenge with the Scots. “I’m really excited to get stuck in and continue my development with Scottish.

“I have played with some of the guys before at Scotland age group level and I’m looking forward to getting straight in to action in a big derby match against Richmond on Friday.”
