Douglas William Hugh "Dougie" Hall (born 24 September 1980) is a retired rugby union player, who currently plays for the Glasgow Warriors and Scotland.


Born in Dingwall, he was educated at Glenalmond College in Perthshire and it was playing for them he was first scouted.


He debuted for Scotland in the second-half defeat against Wales at the age of 22 in August 2003 (23–9). Hall had already represented Scotland at national Under-19 and Under-21 levels, before starting a training contract with the Glasgow Caledonians (now Glasgow Warriors) before turning professional in 2002. He spent much of the 2001–02 season recovering from a broken leg but played for Glasgow towards the end of that season. He then transferred to Edinburgh Rugby where he spent 5 years learning his craft and cementing his place as Scotland's number 1 hooker. He was selected for the 2007 Rugby World Cup but picked up a knee injury and was forced to withdraw.[1] For the start of the 2007–08 season Hall went back down the M8 to rejoin the Glasgow Warriors. In March 2012 he signed his second contract extension, which runs until 2014.[2]

On 24 March 2015, it was announced Hall would retire at the end of the season and move into a career in financial services.[3]
