On the Wing for Scotland

Tokoroa-born Sean Maitland, 24, made his Scotland debut against England in the RBS 6 Nations Championship opener against England on 2 February at Twickenham, scoring the first try of the match.  Maitland qualifies for Scotland through his grandparents. Interim head coach Scott Johnson said: “Sean Maitland is very proud to be pulling on the Scotland jersey for the first time.” “His family will be rapt because they raised him in New Zealand always reminding him of his Scottish heritage,” Johnson said. “He’s shown he can play footy with the best of them and the impact he’s made since arriving at Glasgow in the autumn has underlined what we’d seen of him playing for the Crusaders in Super Rugby.”
