Scott is a freelance broadcaster and rugby commentator with BT Sports, ITV, STV, Sky Sports and the BBC. Given his international playing experience, he is in the unique position of being able to present lead commentary (play-by-play), co-commentary, sometimes known as “colour”, and is also noted for his insightful pitch-side analysis of both fifteen and seven-a-side matches.
Scott has covered the last 6 Rugby World Cups for ITV and continues to work with ITV during their coverage of the 6 Nations Championship. As a former Captain of the Scotland 7s team he has commentated at the Rugby World Cup Sevens from Moscow in 2013 and at the Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens at Glasgow in 2014.
Scott has also been a regular commentator on HSBC Sevens World Series covering games from seven-a-side tournaments across the world including Dubai, Hong Kong, Las Vegas and London. The popularity of the women’s game has seen Scott commentating on tournaments in Dubai, Atlanta, Victoria and notably, the famous Amsterdam tournament.

"Thanks for all your efforts so far, you've done your job excellently. With a number of relatively inexperienced performers in the co-comm role it's been great having you there as a seasoned pro. I was watching this morning and it reminded me listening to you that the role of a good co-commentator is not just to analyse in-play, but to perform the role, get some drama into your voice and build the experience for the viewer. You do this very well indeed. Top work mate."
