PLAYER WRITE-UP
GORDON ROSS (Leeds Tykes) Stand-off. Born 8.3.78 in Edinburgh. 5ft 8in, 12st 10lb. Gordon Ross emerged as joint top scorer (36 points) on Scotland’s 2002 tour of North America during which he played in all three midweek victories. His form this season with Leeds Tykes saw him win the Scotland stand-off berth for the opening Scottish Mutual Autumn Test against Romania. Earlier in the year he kicked two goals from two attempts in quagmire conditions to ensure Scotland A opened their shadow Six Nations campaign with a 6-6 draw against their English counterparts. Better followed a fortnight later when his last-gasp conversion 20 metres from the right touchline earned the Scots a 30-29 victory over Italy A to which Ross contributed a total of 20 points, including a try. He scored Scotland A’s only points in their defeat at the hands of Ireland A in Belfast and contributed eight points to the 13-19 loss to France A, both in March 2002. He followed up with a full house of 18 points (from a try, penalty, two conversions and two drop goals) against Wales A. In 2001 he enjoyed a dream debut for Scotland claiming a record 23 points in the 43-20 November success against Tonga. A prodigious goal-kicker, Ross scored 17 points on his debut for Scotland A as they accounted for their Welsh counterparts 42-20 in February 2001. His goal-kicking was to the fore in the next A victory, too – the 33-13 success against Italy A in which he contributed 13 points. He played a pivotal role in Heriot's FP's second successive club championship in 1999-2000 and was duly rewarded with a professional contract with Edinburgh Reivers (now Edinburgh Rugby). Gordon represented Edinburgh and Scottish Schools at U16 and U18 level before going on to represent Scotland at U19 and U21. The highlight of his early representative career was kicking the winning goal for Edinburgh against Biarritz in 1997 and beating England as part of the Scotland U19 squad in the same season. International record: 6 caps. 2001 - T. 2002 - R SA Fj (rep). 2003 - I W (rep). Points - 29 - 7 penalties, 4 conversions.
