Scottish BKT United Rugby Championship side, the Glasgow Warriors, have announced the signing of former Scotland Under-20 prop Fin Richardson from Exeter Chiefs. 

The tighthead prop has been dual registered with Exeter and Cornish Pirates this season, playing in the championship match for the latter.

Born in Colchester, Richardson received his education in Edinburgh, attending Cargilfield Prep School and Merchiston Castle. 

He played for Currie and Edinburgh Academical, before moving south to study law at the University of Exeter. During his time there, he played a crucial role in helping the university win the BUCS championship in 2022.

Richardson, 25, made a name for himself by scoring two tries in Scotland’s memorable 24-17 comeback victory over England in the U20 Six Nations at Myreside. 

Reflecting on his move, Richardson said:

“I’m really excited to be heading home to Scotland and am especially looking forward to working under [head coach] Franco Smith and learning from the likes of [scrum coach] Al Dickinson. 

"The team are flying this year; I can’t wait to be a part of what comes next. I have a lot to thank Exeter for and I’m so grateful for the time I’ve had with the Chiefs, Cornish Pirates and Exeter University. However, the time is right for me to return home and build on my ambitions for international rugby. 

"There’s a huge opportunity for young tightheads, and coming to Glasgow is going to give me the best possible chance.”

Head coach Franco Smith expressed his enthusiasm about the new addition, stating:

“We’re pleased to welcome Fin to the club as we continue to build toward next season. He is a young prop with good potential, and we know he is keen to learn and develop.”
