Thom is a former Scottish International Rugby player who started playing Rugby at school and played for England at Under 16, 18 and 21 levels. After school he played for the London Wasps and in 2006 he moved to the Glasgow Warriors, where he still holds the record for the most tries scored.
In 2007, Thom played for Scotland in the Rugby 7’s team, making his debut for Scotland in the Rugby Union team the following year. Then disaster struck; whilst playing against Wales in the 2010 Six Nations, he suffered a severe neck injury when colliding with another player. After four months of rehabilitation, sadly Thom was advised to retire from Rugby.
Now, Thom is a commercial model and TV personality. Having worked with many well-known brands on various digital and above the line campaigns from Cadbury’s through to PG Tips and Coca Cola, Thom has also appeared on various TV shows from Strictly Come Dancing to C4’s hit show The Island in a Celebrity special in conjunction with Stand Up To Cancer. Most recently Thom has worked with a variety of brands, such as men’s fashion brand Skopes, as well as working alongside the Royal Opera House to promote World Ballet Day.
