Callum Hunter-Hill becomes latest Scot to join through Performance Partnership

16th November 2016

BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy second-row Callum Hunter-Hill has joined London Scottish on a loan deal.

The 19-year-old is a Scotland Under 20 international and recently made his Glasgow Warriors debut in October against Zebre in the Guinness Pro12.

Previously, the lock received 10 caps at under-18 level, five of which he took charge of the team as captain. The lock has also captained Edinburgh at under-17 and under-18 level as well as appearing for Edinburgh Rugby A against their Glasgow Warriors counterparts, and has since represented Glasgow Warriors in non-league fixtures. 

In the summer of 2015 Hunter-Hill travelled to the Canterbury High Performance Unit in New Zealand on the prestigious MacPhail Scholarship, and after arriving in London he will be reacquainted with fellow age-grade internationalists Cameron Fenton, Ally Miller, Hugh Fraser, Tom Galbraith and Patrick Kelly.

Also at the club are Scottish Rugby's Head of International Age-Grade Rugby, Sean Lineen, who has taken up the role of Director of Rugby, and former Scotland Under 20s Coach John Dalziel as Forwards Coach.

Hunter-Hill is looking forward to a new challenge with the Scots. “I’m really excited to get stuck in and continue my development with Scottish.”

He added: “I have played with some of the guys before at Scotland age group level and I’m hoping to getting straight in to action in a big derby match against Richmond on Friday.”
