Player Profile

Scott Hamilton (Leicester Tigers)

Name: Scott Hamilton

Club: Leicester Tigers

International honours: New Zealand All Blacks

Position: Fullback/Wing

He was 22 when he first made the Canterbury NPC side and in 2003 he joined the Crusaders, sharing in the considerable successes gained by both sides. He was in winning Ranfurly Shield sides in 2004 and 2007 and in the championship winning sides of 2004 and 2008. And he was in the Crusaders sides which won the Super 12 in 2005 and the Super 14 in 2006 and 2008.

After an All Black trial in 2005 Hamilton made his first national selection with two appearances for the Junior All Blacks, which had replaced New Zealand A as the country's second tier side, later that season.

He received his All Black jersey when he was in the side which met Argentina in a one-off test in Buenos Aires in 2006. That side was very much a reflection of the rotation policy coach Graham Henry was then following with the All Blacks and many first stringers were rested.

But Hamilton scored a try in the 25-19 win and then gained another cap when a full strength lineup was fielded in the tri-nations test four weeks later against the Springboks in Wellington. That game was won 35-17.

He signed for Leicester Tigers in 2008 and has played in excess of 140 games for the East Midland club.
