Scott Wight's reward for exceptional and consistent achievement in the club game with Melrose was his first professional contract ahead of season 2011/12.
The contract was with Glasgow Warriors and he is currently in his third year of that agreement.
Coming from the home of rugby sevens, Wight is not unfamiliar to the shortened game, having captained his side to victory in the 2011 Melrose Sevens and his rugby understanding, awareness of space and skill-set are suited to sevens.
His first involvement with the national team was when he was called up for the fourth leg of the 2013/14 HSBC Sevens World Series in Las Vegas.
Wight captained the Greenyards team to a magnificent haul, in 2011, picking up RBS Premier 1, Border League and Melrose Sevens titles. He also guided them to the final of the Scottish Cup.
