Richie Gray is a powerful 6ft 8in lock forward. Having made his debut for Glasgow in 2008, his striking blonde locks soon caught the attention of Scotland coach Andy Robinson who gave him his first cap against the All Blacks in the Autumn Test of 2010. His form in the following Six Nations in 2011 earned him many plaudits, including the Man of the Match award against Italy in a 21-8 victory. Despite his young age Gray is already being talked of as a future British and Irish Lion.
