He was National Division One leading try scorer with Wakefield for two seasons from 1999/2000 for whom he scored 17 tries from 46 starts and 2 as replacement before moving to Leeds Tykes where he continued his try scoring exploits, finishing second in the 2001/2002 list of Zurich Premiership scorers.
It earned him a place in the final two England A matches of 2002 and he played in all four A games during 2003. Equally at home at wing or full back and instantly recognisable by his blond hair, he played in the first Churchill Cup and won his first full cap in the 43–9 win over Wales last August.
Scarbrough won his first full cap for England in August 2003 with a 43–9 win over the Welsh, in the World Cup warm-up match. He has also been capped for England in the Sevens, most notably winning the Hong Kong Sevens Tournament with England in 2004.
Scarbrough was blighted by injuries after his first cap but flew out to South Africa, pre world cup 2007, from England Saxons' Barclays Churchill Cup squad after David Strettle went down with a virus. The Saracens flier ended up on the wing at Loftus Versfeld and ended up scoring England's only try in the 55–22 defeat. He also infamously put a huge tackle on Percy Montgomery during that game.
Joining Saracens from Leeds Tykes in 2004, Scarbrough established himself as a potent attacking weapon, leading the try scoring for the 2005/06 season.
A series of injuries reduced his first team appearances to just eight in that first season, but he played 40 times for the Men In Black the next season at both wing and full back and was beginning to show the form that made him one of Leeds Tykes most prolific try scorers.
At the end of December 2008, following a long term knee injury, it was announced that he had left the club by mutual consent. And signed for the big hitting and spending French side Racing Métro. After the 3 good years in the Top 14 Scarbrough began playing and coaching at Lille Metropole Rugby Club in 2012 in their bid for promotion to the French Pro d2.
