Scott Sio

16th Oct 1991 1.87m/115kg Loosehead Prop

Born and raised in Sydney’s Western Suburbs, Sio attended Trinity Grammar School and played rugby for the West Harbour Pirates and Southern Districts in the Shute Shield.

A strong, hefty lad, Sio’s rise through the aged-grade national ranks has been remarkable.

Sio made the move to the Brumbies prior to the 2012 Super Rugby season and made an immediate impression on new Head Coach Jake White, earning his debut in Round 6 against the Sharks at GIO Stadium.

The son of former Samoan Test prop Tevita ‘David’ Sio, Scotty is quickly proving that his family’s rugby heritage will not end with his father’s name.

He would go from strength to strength after his debut, establishing himself as the Brumbies first choice Loosehead in 2013 and helping the team to a famous victory over the British & Irish Lions as well as a Super Rugby Grand Final berth. His strong Brumbies form would earn him a Wallabies call up for the 2013 Rugby Championship, Sio making his debut against the All Blacks at ANZ Stadium in Sydney at the tender age of 23.

Sio was part of the 2015 Australian Rugby Championship and was also selected for the RWC 2015 squad.

In May 2019 he announced a contract extension with the Brumbies and ARU keeping him in Australia until 2022

On his selection for the Wallaby World Cup squad he had 58 Tests to his name
