Chris Patterson Chris Patterson

A full-back who tends to prefer the stand-off position, Chris Patterson is a truly gifted player.

Although relatively small in frame, he has speed, fine hands and the ability to come off both feet in a blink. In short, he possesses all the skills necessary for an international number 15.

A supreme danger when counter-attacking, he also hits the line with speed and has already terrorised many defences during his young career.

Scottish fans will be hoping he is given a yard of space in which to prove himself. With nine caps already, he may well blossom this season.
