Since making his Scotland debut in 2017, Harris has accumulated 28 caps and become a key figure in the heart of their midfield.

An athletic and intelligent centre, best known for his defensive aptitude, Harris has thrived under Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend and defence coach Steve Tandy in the last 18 months
