Colin Rhys Gregor skippered the Scots’ seven-a-side squad for the first time when they competed in the IRB World Series tournaments in Wellington (New Zealand) in February 2009. He continued in that role in the 2009 Rugby World Cup 7s, in Dubai, and for three seasons from 2011 to 2014.
In December 2013 at the Nelson Mandela Bay 7s in Port Elizabeth, Gregor became the first Scot to score 1000 points for his country and the eighth player in the history of the HSBC Sevens World Series to pass the same milestone. His 50th cap was won at Twickenham in May 2014.
Following his 50th appearance for the abbreviated national team he was named in his second Team Scotland, Rugby Sevens,Commonwealth Games squad. He won his first cap in the multi-sport event in Melbourne in 2006 and then was named in the Glasgow 2014 outfit.
Colin began his playing days with Strathendrick before moving to New Zealand, where he joined Ponsonby. He made his debut for Watsonians against Grangemouth in 2000.
He has also played nine games for Scotland A, all bar one as a replacement. Most recently he played against Italy A in Biella (February 2010). His debut at that level was against New Zealand Maori in Edmonton, Canada in the 2006 Barclays Churchill Cup tournament. Colin also played with Glasgow Warriors from 2004 to 2011.
