In 1999 he was chosen for a World XV as part of the Argentinian Rugby Union’s centenary celebrations following his part in Scotland’s Five Nations Championship success.

He helped the Scottish team to fourth place in the 1996 Students' World Cup, played in the three victories on the 1997 Scotland XV tour, and appeared in three of the four matches on the1999 venture. He won his first A cap in the win against Emerging Wales in January, 1997, and went on to play against all of Scotland's Five Nations opponents at that level. In December, 1997, he won his first full cap in the match against South Africa.
