I’m one of BBC Television’s rugby commentators. I come from Troon on the Ayrshire coast (south-west Scotland) but have lived in London for the past seven years - although I make frequent trips north to “visit the family” (play golf).
My grandfather J.L.Cotter played stand-off for Scotland in the 1930’s, as far as I’m aware was the only minister to have pulled on the dark blue jersey.
My own international sporting recognition was far more limited, representing Scottish Schools at golf against England. Scotland lost.
I started commentating on rugby and golf on BBC Radio in 2000 before a Bosman-style free transfer to TV.
