Description:
Andrew Douglas Nicol (born 12 March 1971 in Dundee), is a former rugby union player and the first British player to lift the Heineken Cup as captain of Bath Rugby. He was educated at the High School of Dundee and he also captained the Scotland national rugby union team from scrum-half on the famous occasion in 2000 when Scotland beat England 19-13 at a rain-soaked Murrayfield and so prevented England from achieving the Grand Slam that year. He won 23 caps for Scotland.

Nicol was also called up as a late replacement for the British Lions in 2001 replacing Austin Healey, whilst on holiday in Australia.

Nicol retired at the end of the 2002/3 season and became involved with Glasgow Rugby.

He managed the Scottish based sevens team, at the Dubai 7s from 2004 until 2006 and then again in 2009.

On 16 February 2007, he was defeated in the Rectorial election at the University of Dundee. Former British Ambassador Craig Murray was duly elected Lord Rector with 632 votes to Nicol's 582.

Nicol is a presenter for BBC Sport.
