“Duncan has a great way about him. He doesn’t say too much, but he has that voice that you want to listen to.” – Scotland assistant coach Mike Blair
Enjoying a slightly unconventional introduction to the sport, Duncan Taylor’s childhood was split between England, Scotland and Australia.
The centre didn’t play for a county representative side or a professional club until signing for Bedford Blues aged 17.
His outstanding set of performances for the Championship outfit caught the eyes of the Saracens selectors, joining the north London club on a dual-registration deal in the summer of 2011.
Since linking up with Sarries, the potent attacker has put in several seasons of impressive play, making over 100 appearances for the club, firmly establishing himself as one of Europe’s finest outside backs in a period that saw Saracens win Premiership and European Cup titles.
Stepping straight into international rugby at senior level, Taylor played for Scotland A at the beginning of 2013, before stepping up to make his full debut against Samoa later that year.
