John Stuart David Moffat (born 18 August 1977 in Edinburgh) is a former Scottish rugby union international. He also played a first-class cricket match for Cambridge University.

Rugby Union career[edit]

Amateur career[edit]

Moffat played for Edinburgh and Cambridge University, for whom he made two appearances in The Varsity Match against Oxford while studying as a postgraduate student.[1]

Professional career[edit]

He has played for various clubs during his career including Castres in France, Viadana in Italy and Scottish professional district sides Glasgow Warriors and Border Reivers.

International career[edit]

Moffat made his Test debut in a match against Romania at Murrayfield in November 2002 and scored a try from full-back in a 27-point win.[2] He played two further Tests in the same stadium that month, with Scotland defeating both South Africa and Fiji.[3] Moffat's only other cap came two years later, again at Murrayfield, when Australia defeated Scotland by 31 points to 14 to claim the Hopetoun Cup.[4]

He has played for various clubs during his career including Castres in France, Viadana in Italy and Scottish teams Borders and Edinburgh.

Cricket career[edit]

Club career[edit]

His first-class cricket appearance was made in the 2002 University Match, against Oxford University. Moffat brought up a century off just 103 balls and had amassed 169 by the time Benjamin Vonwiller trapped him leg before wicket. It was the highest score by a cricketer playing their first match for Cambridge University since Test batsman Hubert Doggart made a double hundred in 1948.[5] As Moffat did not bat again, either in that match or at first-class level, Moffat's career average remained 169.[6]

International career[edit]

His performance was a contrast to his earlier efforts in 1997, when he scored ducks in two limited overs matches for a Scotland XI against Durham. He had also represented Scotland at Under-19 level.[7]
