The Scotland skipper is competing at his first World Cup after injury ruled him out four years ago. 

The 29-year-old began his career as a back-rower before converting to hooker and since earned the nickname "Rambo" for his style of play.

McInally has had a rapid rise to leadership, only making his debut in 2015 playing just 29 tests.

The Edinburgh native has an eye for the line as well, scoring six tries in his international career.
