Rugby union career
Gray started playing rugby at Cambuslang Rugby Club where he progressed from the mini section (at 7 years old) through to first XV regular at the age of 16. He also played for Calderglen High School in East Kilbride.
At just 21 years of age, Gray was named captain of Glasgow Warriors in November 2015, taking over from recently retired mentor Alastair Kellock. He became a co-captain with Henry Pyrgos for the 2016-17 season but following the arrival of Dave Rennie as Warriors Head Coach the club has reverted to a sole captaincy. For the 2017-18 season Rennie named Ryan Wilson as captain though Gray remains in the leadership group.
In December 2017, it was announced that, after rejecting an offer from Bristol Rugby, Gray had extended his contract at the Warriors until May 2020. It was announced in January 2020 that Gray would join Exeter Chiefs on a two-year contract ahead of the 2020–21 season, joining up with his Scotland teammates Stuart Hogg and Sam Skinner.
In 2012, Jonny Gray was announced in the Scotland national under-20 rugby union team for the 2012 Six Nations Under-20s Championship and retained his position for the 2013 season where he was named captain.
Gray played in every match for Scotland during the 2015 6 Nations, attempting an astonishing 85 tackles in total and missing only one. Subsequently, he was selected in Scotland's 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, playing four of their five matches in the run to the Quarter-Finals.
