Richie has become an iconic figure in rugby since making his Scotland debut in 2010. Now, in 2018 he still continues to play for Scotland 8 years after making his first debut.
Richie’s partnership in the second row with his brother Jonny is rapidly developing into one of the strongest in the game. Their mixture of athleticism, work rate and their skill set has made them both invaluable to the Scottish set up.
One of Richie’s successes in his career was being part of the victorious Lions team in 2013.
Richie currently plays his club rugby in France for Stade Toulousain, one of the most successful teams in the Northern Hemisphere.
