Scott is a strong and versatile front rower who can play at hooker but also covers tighthead. He was named Most Improved Player in the Academy during the 2006-07 season and made his first team debut against Manchester during the team's successful National One campaign. He appeared a further three times over the season and scored a try against Birmingham and Solihull to help send Leeds into the semi-final of EDF National Trophy.
After a frustrating 2009-10 season, in which a knee reconstruction kept him out of the entire season, Academy graduate Scott Freer made his comeback during the 2010-11 season against Gloucester and went on to make a further 4 appearances over the season and scored his first try for the club in the home fixture against Newcastle Falcons.
Injuries again during the 2011-12 season were a setback, but when fit he pushed his way into contention for first team action, making 17 appearances and scoring two tries against Currie and Plymouth Albion.
Scott has represented Yorkshire and having won honours for England at U18 and U19 level he was named in the England U20 squad for this season. Alongside winning the AER Under 18 title with England, Scott lists beating Lancashire as his finest rugby moment. Whilst with Leeds he has also played on loan with Otley, Nottingham and Wharfedale.
Although Scott has been playing rugby since he was young things could have been very different for the Leeds born player as his initial ambition was to be a wrestler. Scott's likes indie and rock music, but also likes a bit of everything else. The player he most admires in the game is Richie McCaw.
