Zander Fagerson earned his Scotland debut as a replacement prop in the 2016 RBS 6 Nations against England at BT Murrayfield, making him the 1074th Scotland cap.
Aged 20, Fagerson was the fourth youngest prop in Scottish history to be capped for the country, and the youngest to represent Scotland for more than half a century (since Bill Black debuted against France at Murrayfield 1948).
His debut came year after signing his first professional contract with Glasgow Warriors, in March 2015, having been aligned to the club through Scottish Rugby’s Elite Evelopment Programme since June 2014.
A product of the High School of Dundee, Zander represented the school at under-16 and lifted the Brewin Dolphin Plate, before moving to Strathallan on a scholarship.
His impressive rugby credentials were then further enhanced by selection for Caledonia and his country at under-16 and under-18.
He was part of the sides that played Ireland and England in early 2013, starting at tight-head in both matches, and represented Glasgow Hawks in RBS Premiership during the 2013/14 season.
Outside of rugby, Fagerson won the 2010 Scottish Downhill Mountain Bike Championship (2010), was in the National Boys Choir (2008), and is a qualified lifeguard.
