Find out more about the Glasgow Warriors and Scotland winger

He then made his first start for Gregor Townsend’s side in a Six Nations thriller as Scotland survived a Wales comeback to win in Cardiff for the first time in 22 years.

Rowe kept his place in the starting XV for the second game of the 2024 campaign against France, who left Murrayfield with a controversial win to dent Scotland’s title prospects.

The 26-year-old is yet to score a try for Scotland but is likely to remain an integral part of the squad, so here are some things you should know about him.

Ten things you should know about Kyle Rowe

1. Kyle Rowe was born on 8 February 1998 in Ascot, and was educated at Queen Victoria School in Dunblane.

2. He played for Edinburgh before moving to London Irish in 2021. Rowe then joined Glasgow Warriors ahead of the 2023/24 campaign after the collapse of London Irish.

3. Rowe competed for Scotland U16, U18 and U20 before being called up into the senior side for the 2022 Six Nations. He has also played for the Scotland Sevens team.

4. He was furloughed from the sevens team during the pandemic. He ended up working in an Amazon warehouse. He told RugbyPass: “Losing my job at that point was really hard. Furlough pay was okay, but I couldn’t really live off it.

“I had to go work in the Amazon warehouse at Bathgate doing nightshifts for two months. It was a real drain on my mental health. At that point, I was ready to give up.”

5. After being called into the Scotland squad for the Six Nations, he had to sit out of the training squad due to illness.

6. Rowe helped London Irish to a famous comeback against Saracens in 2021. He scored a hat-trick as 14-man Irish recovered from 24-7 down to draw 34-34.

7. His form for Irish earned Rowe a call-up to the Scotland squad for the 2022 Six Nations, although he didn’t make an appearance. Rowe would make his Scotland debut later that year against Argentina when Gregor Townsend’s side toured South America in July.

8. Rowe became a free agent after the demise of London Irish and returned to Warriors, where he played as an academy prospect.

Of the move, he said: “When Glasgow said they were interested, it all fell into place perfectly to be honest. To be able to move back home and be close to family and friends was a no-brainer.”

9. He has earned three caps for his country and counting, and started the first two games of the 2024 Six Nations for Scotland against Wales and France, although he is yet to score his first try.

10. Rowe is engaged to long-term partner Rhona.
