INVERNESS rugby player Jamie Dobie has scored his first international try as Scotland ran riot in a 73-12 win against Canada last night.

The Glasgow Warriors player, who started and played the full 80 minutes as a winger last night, got his try in the 70th minute with the scoreline at 59-12.

It was Scotland’s first game of the Americas Tour as they now travel to United States next week before going on to face Chile and Uruguay.

Dobie (23) who started his rugby career in the youth set-up at Highland Rugby Club in Inverness, was part of the Glasgow Warriors team which won the United Rugby Championship last month.

Glasgow Warriors defeated Bulls 21-16 in the final in front of over 50,000 fans at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

The former Kirkhill Primary School pupil says he is looking to use this season as a springboard for more success at club and international level in the future.
