Background

Rory Sutherland came through the ranks with his hometown club and school sides before representing the Borders and Scotland at under-17 and under-18 in the back-row.

He switched to loose-head prop during his first season of senior rugby at Hawick and, after a season with Biggar, caught the attention of RBS Premiership runners-up and Border League winners Gala.

Sutherland was a former Trinity Primary and Hawick High School pupil.

International career

Sutherland received his first call up to the senior Scotland squad by coach Vern Cotter on 19 January 2016 for the 2016 Six Nations Championship.[2] Sutherland got his first Scotland cap during the Six Nations against Ireland in 2016.
