Scotland players son representing another country

Post by Gorgiewave » Wed Oct 13, 2010 7:41 pm

Reading Jim Bett's entry on wikipedia yesterday, I learnt that his sons Baldur and Calum won representative honours for Iceland U-19s. I immediately thought of Barney Battles Sr. and Barney Battles Jr., the latter a Scotland and USA cap. Are there other examples of players playing for Scotland whose son played for another country? I feel there are likely to be, with the United States, Canada, Australia and South Africa perhaps the most likely receptor countries, but I can't think of any players. Can anybody help?

Hibs player And Scotland international Jimmy McGhee's son - Bart McGhee - played for the USA at the 1930 world cup.

It's not quite an answer to this question, but the Brown family should certainly be mentioned here. Jim (scored for USA in 1930 World Cup semi-final) was a brother of Jock (Scotland); Jim's son George also played for the USA, whilst Jock's sons Peter and Gordon both played rugby for Scotland.
