Hawick-born Rory Sutherland made his Scotland debut against Ireland in the 2016 Six Nations, make two further appearances (including a first start) in victories over Japan later that year.

He joined Edinburgh on a FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy deal in 2014 as a reward for his form with club side Gala.

While still in the Academy, Sutherland established himself as a mainstay in the Edinburgh squad and was awarded a full professional contract ahead of the 2015/16 season.

The loosehead prop was included in the RBS 6 Nations 2016 squad and made his international debut off the bench against Ireland in March of that year.

Sutherland endured a frustrating 2017/18 season which saw the prop struggle with injury, however, the Scotland cap returned to fitness in 2018, scoring an intergral try in the bonus-point win over Southern Kings in January 2019.

The prop put pen-to-paper on a one-year extension which will see him remain in the capital until at least 2020.

He featured in Scotland's Guinness Six Nations squad for 2020, earning a first international cap in three-and-a-half years against Ireland in Dublin.
