Finn Russell

Finn Russell signed a two-year professional contract with the Warriors from the 2014/15 season, after coming through the Scottish Rugby Elite Development Programme, before then signing a new contract in November 2015 keeping them at the club until May 2018.

The former Stirling County and Ayr fly-half became the 835th player to represent the British and Irish Lions when he was called up to the 2017 tour of New Zealand, appearing in the 31-31 draw against the Hurricanes.

He made his Scotland debut against the USA on the first match of Scotland's 2014 summer tour. It capped an excellent season for Russell who fought off fierce competition to become first choice stand-off at Glasgow on their run to the PRO12 final. He made his first appearance at BT Murrayfield for Scotland in the 41-31 win against Argentina in November 2014.

Russell scored his first try in professional rugby when he crossed the line in the final game of the 2015 RBS 6 Nations Championship, against Ireland, at BT Murrayfield.  

The gifted stand-off was brought into the Scotstoun fold in the summer of 2012 after impressing in the club game with Falkirk and as a key member of the Scotland under-20 team during the RBS 6 Nations.

In 2011, he helped Stirling County Colts win the under-18 National Youth Cup and in 2013 it was announced he was a recipient of the MacPhail Scholarship to travel to New Zealand to develop his game.
