Sean Maitland will follow in the footsteps of Arthur O’Brien, Pat McEvedy and Riki Flutey as New Zealand-born players who have played for the British & Irish Lions when he makes his debut. Although born in Tokoroa, Maitland father is Scottish. A product of the same school as head coach Warren Gatland, Hamilton School for Boys, he was playing his rugby in New Zealand until Glasgow Warriors signed him on a three-year contract from this season. He arrived in Scotland in October, 2012 and made his Warriors debut in the Heineken Cup clash with Castres Olympique on 7 December. He won his first Scottish cap after a mere six appearances for his new club and became the first Scotsman to score a try on his RBS 6 Nations debut when he scored in the defeat against England in round one. He currently has five caps.
He was in the New Zealand U19 team that won the IRB World Championship in Belfast in 2007, beating Sam Warburton’s Wales team along the way, and then featured in a New Zealand side that won the inaugural IRB World Junior Championships in Wales in 2008 by beating Ireland, the hosts and then England in the final.
He was on the bench for the Crusaders when they beat the Waratahs in the 2008 Super Rugby final and was a losing finalist in 2011. In the latter campaign he scored a record four tries in one game against the Brumbies. He also played in four successful Canterbury sides that won NPC titles between 2008-2011. In all, he scored 20 tries in almost 50 games for Canterbury and made more than 50 Super Rugby appearances for the Crusaders.
