Ryan Grant

Scotland prop Ryan Grant made his Scotland debut in the first Test of the 2012 summer tour, starting in the 9-6 victory over Australia in New South Wales and continued to start in the further two wins over Fiji and Samoa.

Two appearances in the Autumn Tests followed later that year before starting in each of Scotland's 2013 RBS 6 Nations matches.

He then earned a call up to the 2013 British & Irish Lions tour of Australia before returning to feature in all of Scotland's Autumn Test matches, and starting each of the following year's RBS 6 Nations matches once again.

Grant's performances in the following season, which saw him help Glasgow Warriors to the PRO12 title, on top of a further five appearances for his country, were enough to secure a place in the 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup 2015, featuring twice, as a replacement and as the starting prop in the Pool wins over USA and Japan respectively.

Through the ranks

Born in Kirkcaldy, Ryan undertook his secondary education at the Alice Smith School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

He returned to serve in the Royal Signals, has played also for the Combined Services’ under-21 team, and stepped up to Scotland’s under-21 team in making his international debut against France at Falkirk in February 2006. He played in all four subsequent matches in the championship as loose head in an ever-present front five. 

The Scotland under-21 forward scored the clinching try for the Army in their 23-13 victory against the Royal Navy at Portsmouth in December 2005, a result that secured the Inter-Services Under-21 Championship for his team.

Later in the year he played in all five matches in the under-21 world championship in France, and subsequently signed for the Border Reivers.

Following up under-21 international honours in 2006 he made his Scotland A debut in the victory against their Italian counterparts at McDiarmid Park, Perth, in February 2007.

He joined Edinburgh Rugby from Border Reivers in summer 2007 and moved to Glasgow Warriors three seasons later and won a recall to the Scotland A team for the game against Italy A at Netherdale in February 2011, scoring the only try of the match.
