Robert Harley enjoyed a terrific first two years as a professional in seasons 2010/11 and 2011/12, earning praise from all quarters with his combative and relentless style in the back row.
He won his first cap for Scotland on the 2012 summer tour to the south seas, scoring a try on his debut against Samoa and then going on to make his first Scotland start in the 2013 RBS 6 Nations.
Voted McCrea Financial Services Player of the Season for 2010/11, the flanker was recognised with a long-term contract extension by the Warriors.
With regular captain Al Kellock away at the Rugby World Cup, Harley was named as Warriors skipper for the opening 2011/12 RaboDirect PRO12 game against Ulster at Ravenhill. He ended the campaign with a Scotland cap, scoring the winning try minutes into his debut against Samoa.
He signed for Warriors in summer 2010 having earned Scotland representative honours at u17, u18 and u20 levels.
Always a precocious talent, Harley made his debut for West of Scotland in season 2006/07 while he was still a pupil at Douglas Academy, Milngavie
