Winger Robbie Nairn and Bruce Flockhart will look to break into the Glasgow Warriors squad during 2018/19 after signing first pro deals.
Nairn, a 21-year-old who came through the ranks at Currie High School, George Watson’s College and Currie Chieftains, joined the BT Sport Academy last season from English Premiership side Harlequins and featured in Glasgow’s pre-season fixture against Northampton Saints at Bridgehaugh last year.
He has previously played for Scotland under-20 and Sevens, but was frustrated with injuries during 2017/18 and only played for draft side Ayr a handful of times.
“It’s incredibly exciting to sign a professional deal with Glasgow Warriors. I’ve had a frustrating year, I had great fun playing for the Warriors in pre-season and was playing well before I got injured. I feel like I’ve shown bits of what I can do but I’m looking forward to getting into pre-season and giving a good account of myself in front of all of the coaches,” Nairn said.
“I spent a lot of time in the Warriors environment last season and I learned the standards that are expected at this club. Dave Rennie’s focus on basic skill levels has really helped me and there’s always a lot of concise feedback.
“Developing a relationship with coaches is important for a young guy like myself and I’m going to try and learn as much as I can from them and my teammates too.
