Richie has become an iconic figure in rugby since making his Scotland debut in 2010.
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.
Richie was part of the victorious Lions party in 2013 and he is determined to test himself against New Zealand in 2017 under Head Coach Warren Gatland.
Richie currently plays his club rugby in France for Stade Toulousain, one of the most successful teams in the Northern Hemisphere.
