Talented Scottish teen signs for Harlequins FC

Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club Harlequins FC has pulled off one of the biggest transfer coups of recent seasons by signing talented young Scotsman Robbie Nairn to their academy, beating off stiff competition from several other Aviva Premiership rivals.

Considered to be one of the biggest talents to emerge from Scotland in the last decade, Nairn has shocked the entire rugby community of Scotland by turning his back on his home country to move south and ply his trade in the Aviva Premiership. The 18 year old winger will link up with his new teammates in London as soon as his session at the Watson’s College ends.

Nairn also excelled in other sports and is a former Scottish schools shot putt champion and was recently turning out for Currie on a few occasions and he even won the BT Premiership try of the month award back in January.

The youngster is extremely excited about his move to Harlequins FC and spoke of his delight at being scouted by one of the biggest clubs in European rugby. A former Scotland Under 16 and Under 18 international, Nairn said that the task ahead of him is daunting and it is a challenge, especially living up to standards that the senior team has already placed before them but he wishes to develop his game all round in order to be seen as a worthy player capable of stepping up in their place when the time comes.

The academy manager at Harlequins FC Tony Diprose also hailed the signing of the youngster, saying that the player has immense potential and a desire to succeed and he is hopeful that the club will be able to develop him into a truly great layer of his time, which will benefit both the player and the club.
