18th May 1989 1.93m/103kg No. 8

Ryan Wilson is a dynamic No.8 who enjoyed a fine debut campaign with Glasgow Warriors in 2010/11, most notably when he delivered a man of the match-winning display in the Heineken Cup win over London Wasps at Firhill in January 2011.

He improved yet further in terms of consistency and effectiveness the following year, playing a major role in helping the Warriors to the RaboDirect PRO12 semi-finals and he now steps in as captain when required and is one of the leading figures at the club. Prior to signing for Glasgow, he played for London Irish and Wasps in the English Premiership’s A League as well as for the Four London Academies in an under-19 match against France.

Made test debut in RBS 6 Nations v Wales in 2013 round 4. Played in all 5 games in the 2014 campaign but didnt play in 2015. Appeared in the last three rounds in 2016.

The Glasgow Warriors forward has 22 Scotland caps to date. Wilson started against Australia in the recent Autumn International but was then named as a replacement for the Argentina clash due to an injury sustained in the Australia fixture.

Wilson, who can play across the back-row, started four of Scotland's five Six Nations matches last season and has won 30 caps for his country.

Wilson was named as Glasgow Warriors captain for the 2017-18 season, the Scotland forward, 28, has made 127 appearances for the club, helping Glasgow to their maiden Pro12 title in 2015.

Wilson was named club captain by Dave Rennie after the New Zealander took over from Gregor Townsend ahead of the 2017/18 season and Townsend made him Scotland Vice Captain following his appointment as Scotland Head Coach. He has played 37 times for his country.

In April 2018, Wilson signed a new two year with Glasgow Warriors, the new deal will see the backrower complete a decade in Glasgow after joining the club in 2010 and having gone on to amass 138 appearances.

Wilson took his test cap tally to 43 by the end of the 2019 Six Nations
