James Eddie

James Eddie is one of the most popular members of the Warriors squad with teammates and supporters alike. He was part of the Scotland 7s set-up for the 2011/12 HSBC Sevens World Series, but returned to the Warriors fold full-time in season 2012/13 having signed a new two-year contract.

Shortly before embarking on the HSBC Sevens World Series, Eddie played a major part in the thumping RaboDirect PRO12 win away to Cardiff Blues in September 2011, scoring perhaps his best ever try for the Warriors with a lung-bursting run from distance.

James was voted under-18 Scottish player of the year in 2003, and that honour was followed by his being named young player of the year at the Glasgow Rugby Awards Dinner in April 2004 He followed that up with the William Purves Quaich as Outstanding Scottish Young Player of the Year in 2006.

James played for Glasgow Hutchesons’ Aloysians before joining Glasgow as an apprentice in summer 2004. James was a member of the Glasgow Rugby Academy and the West of Scotland Institute of Sport before graduating to a full-time professional contract in the summer of 2006.

He made his senior Glasgow debut as a replacement in the 26-20 away win over Munster in February 2006.
