Dougie Fife (born 8 August 1990) is a Scottish rugby union player who currently plays for Edinburgh Rugby

Career[edit]

He has represented Scotland at the under-17, under-19 and under-20 age groups, as well as in the IRB Sevens World Series. Fife spent most of the 2010–11 season with the Scotland Sevens team.

As of February 2013, Fife is contracted to Edinburgh until the summer of 2015.[1]

Fife received his first full international call-up on 15 January 2014, when he was named in Scotland's 36-man training squad ahead of the 2014 Six Nations Championship by Head Coach Scott Johnson.[2] His first international try came during a narrow defeat to France on the opening weekend of the 2015 Six Nations Championship.[3]

At the end of the 2015–16 season Fife left Edinburgh Rugby for the Scotland 7s team before rejoining for the 2017–18 season.

He was called up to Scotland's 2018 summer tour of the Americas, scoring tries in both appearances (against the USA and Argentina).
