​Back-row Jamie Ritchie has been of the club's most consistent performers since signing a senior deal straight out of high school aged just 17-years-old.

The former Scotland U20 captain came off the bench to make his senior team debut in Dublin against Leinster in October 2014 and has never looked back.

A destructive ball carrier who's sharpness in and around the breakdown make him a constant defensive threat, Ritchie's game continues to develop with a plethora of back-row stars surrounding him,

Ritchie signed a contract extension which will keep him at the club until at least 2021, whilst the back-row made his 50th appearance for the club against Ulster in September 2018 at the age of just 22-years-old.

The back-row was named in Gregor Townsend's Scotland squad for the 2018 Summer Tour to Canada, USA and Argentina and made his international debut against Canada on 9 June.

Ritchie was one of Scotland's standout performers during the 2019 Six Nations campaign.
