Rory (sponsored by glasgowarriors.com), is a product of the Strathendrick club in Fintry, Stirlingshire, and made his Scotland debut on the tour international against Canada in Vancouver, and he went on to score his first international try against United States in San Francisco a week later.
Less than a year earlier he celebrated his Scotland A debut with a try in the 40-35 victory against Argentina at Selkirk in November, and he played in four of the five subsequent matches at that level that season.
Rory played for Scotland's under-18 and under-19 teams in 1997-98. However, because of injury in the under-19 international against England he had to drop out of the squad for the FIRA world junior championship in France. He recovered in time to be included on the Glasgow Thistles' first venture to New Zealand in the summer of that year.
Rory then moved from Strathendrick to West of Scotland and played in all five of Scotland's under-21 internationals in season 1998-99. He is now in his fourth season as a contracted played with the Glasgow professional team. In addition to his age-group internationals he has made his mark as member of the national seven-a-side squad.
Rory is too good a player to be lost to the game. He's a very good friend to glasgowwarriors.com and has always been generous with his time. We hope we'll see him on a rugby pitch near us again very soon.
