Scott Riddell

An integral part of every Scotland 7s squad for the best part of a decade, Scott Riddell has made himself an invaluable part of the national setup.

Riddell joined the squad on a full-time basis ahead of the 2012/13 season, having previously competed at the 2009 Sevens World Cup and 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, in addition to appearing on the World Series.

The forward has since gone on to represent his country at two further Commonwealth Games, at Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018.

A near ever-present in the team, Riddell was also part of the Scotland side that secured a famous first-ever series victory at Twickenham in 2016 with a famous comeback win over South Africa.

That same tournament marked Riddell’s 50thappearance on the World Series for his country, having made his debut on the tour in 2008.

Riddell then played a key role as Scotland defended their Twickenham title twelve months later, scoring what proved to be the winning try in their 12-7 victory over England in the final.

Known for his tireless work ethic, he was named captain for the 2018 Sevens World Cup in San Francisco, leading the team to a seventh place finish.
