Simon Charles Jonathan Danielli missed the 2007 Rugby World Cup because of injury, but he returned to the national squad in Scotland's preparations for this year's RBS Six Nations Championship. He made a try-scoring start to his Scotland career when he crossed in the comprehensive win against Italy in the 2003 RWC Countdown Test. In his first start of the 2003 Rugby World Cup, against the USA, he powered Scotland to victory with two tries - bringing his tally to four in as many caps. That match followed on from Scotland's first game in the tournament against Japan when he came on as a replacement and scored with his first touch of the ball. He also crossed the try-line in his Murrayfield Six Nations debut against England in February 2004. However, in the months that followed, injury curtailed his participation in the summer tour to Australia, limiting him to only two outings against New South Wales Country and New South Wales Waratahs. He was in scoring mood also for Scotland A in the Barclays Churchill Cup in Canada in June 2006, with a try in each of the wins against England Saxons and Canada. He added to that tally in February 2007 with a try in the A international victory against Italy at McDiarmid Park, Perth. Later that year he played for Scotland A in two of the three Churchill Cup matches in England. Simon, while at Cheltenham College, played for English Schools in season 1997-1998, scoring a try in the Hughenden international against Scottish Schools. He then had representative rugby England under-21 and England Students before opting to pursue his birth qualification with Scotland. He played in three University matches (1998-2000) and graduated from Oxford in philosophy and theology. Simon, who played full back at Cheltenham College, cites his best moment in club rugby as a try he scored for Bath against Leeds Tykes in 2001-02. Simon, a former member of the Scottish Exiles squad, joined Bath from rivals Bristol Shoguns in 2001 and moved to Th e Borders in three years later. He joined Ulster in summer 2007. 2003 - IRB World Cup 2008 - Scotland RSB 6 Nations
