Tom, a former student at the University of Bath, came through the Bath Rugby academy. He went on to become a member of their first team squad, but transferred to Edinburgh in 2014. He studied for a degree in Politics with Economics at the University of Bath and graduated in 2013.
One of the most hotly-tipped young players in the game, Tom made his Bath Rugby debut in the West Country Derby against Gloucester on 24 September 2011.
He scored his first points for the club against traditional rivals Leicester Tigers on 3 October 2011, and scored his first try against Worcester in the LV=Cup.
Born in Inverness when his family lived in Scotland due to his father’s work in the RAF, Tom moved back to England at a young age. He represented England at junior levels, however he went on to full international rugby with the Scottish national side, winning his first cap as a substitute in a game against Tonga in November 2012.
On 2 June 2014, Tom signed a one year contract with Edinburgh in order to get more first team rugby and improve his chances of adding to his international caps for Scotland.
