Having been named in a core Scotland 7s squad for the first time ahead of the 2017/18 season, Robbie Fergusson impressed to the extent that he was named as co-captain for last season's 2018/19 series, moving to become sole skipper for the 2019/20 campaign.
Fergusson was born in Ayr and attended the town’s Wellington School, a pathway that naturally lead to him pulling on the pink and black jersey and helping the team win Scotland’s national club championship and cup double in 2013.
His career was interrupted later that year with the diagnosis of Hodgkin’s lymphoma but he made a full recovery to return for Ayr, and then play professionally, with Glasgow.
The centre signed for Warriors in 2015 and after spending time on loan to London Scottish, made his move to Richmond permanent, where he played alongside the likes of George Horne and Rory Hughes.
Capped at every level from U17 to U20, former Academy prospect Fergusson was called into the Scotland 7s squad in 2017 and he enjoyed a distinguished debut season, appearing for Scotland at both the Sevens World Cup in San Francisco and at Melbourne's Commonwealth Games in 2018.
He was named as co-captain alongside Jamie Farndale for the 2018/19 campaign and played all ten events on the circuit, with his overall tournament points tally approaching 300 entering into the current season.
