Max is a former Scottish international rugby player who won 44 caps for Scotland.
He made his Scotland debut as a replacement in the win against Canada at Pittodrie, Aberdeen, in November 2008. In doing so, he joined his younger brother, Thom, in Scotland’s list of capped players. They were the 20th set of brothers to play rugby for Scotland. Three months later Max had his first start for Scotland in the RBS 6 Nations Championship match against France in Paris. Max’s club career saw him represent Castres, Glasgow Warriors and London Scottish and was a member of Harlequins’ academy set-up.
Taking time away from rugby, Max was a professional golfer in Portugal from 2004 to 2006. During that time he underwent physio rehab on his back injury to allow him to return to the rugby field, which he did through the seven-a-side game. Max has played in four IRB world series sevens tournaments, all in 2007, making his debut in Hong Kong and playing the subsequent Adelaide (Australia), Twickenham, and Murrayfield events.
Away from rugby he is a scratch golfer and keen sportsman. He now runs a fitness company with his brother Thom and is an Adidas ambassador.
He joins the cast of Dancing on Ice for the new series starting in January 2018.
