Hay was a fullback and gained 23 international caps for Scotland and also represented the British Lions and the Barbarians. He started his rugby career at junior club Liberton RFC, a team he captained at the age of 18, and while there represented Edinburgh, this was an astonishing feat for a junior club player and his tough tackling reputation was sealed. He then moved to Boroughmuir in 1972 where he went on to gain international recognition.
