Scott joins the RaboDirect Rebels from ITM Cup side, the Wellington Lions.At 101kg, Scott represents the traditional openside flanker, with great presence at the breakdown and an immense work rate around the park.Fuglistaller waited patiently for his Super Rugby debut with his hometown team, Wellington, but seized an opportunity (through injury) to play a starring role with the Otago Highlanders late in the 2012 Super Rugby season.A New Zealand under 19s representative in 2006, Scott has played 54 matches for Wellington since his debut in 2008. He will now look to be a permanent starter for the Rebels, after the departures of regular openside flankers Michael Lipman, and Tom Chamberlain.Scott has signed for a two year term with the Club, and is considered a developing foreign player, which demonstrates the faith shown in the ability of the Taranaki born flanker.At 25, Scott has not only made a significant impact on the field, but off it, as well. He completed his tertiary education at the University of Victoria in Wellington with a Degree in Human Resources.In his spare time, the man they call ‘Hans’ is an astute free diver and resides with fellow countryman and Wellington Lions teammate Jason Woodward.
