Finlay was an elite development player connected to Glasgow before signing a full-time deal with the Warriors in December 2011.
He impressed enough to be signed up on a two-year deal in 2012.
Finlay John Gillies was in the winning team on his debuts for Scotland at U19 and U20 levels. A replacement on both occasions, he played in the win against Italy in Parabagio, near Milan, in February 2008, and that was followed with Scotland’s win against Wales at McDiarmid Park, Perth, on the opening day of the U20 Six Nations Championship in February 2009.
A week after the Perth match he had his first start for Scotland U20 in the game against France in Chalon-sur-Saone. He also started in the three other matches in that championship, and three months later in the IRB Junior World Championship in Japan he again appeared in all five matches, starting in three and scoring two tries in the 35-26 win against Fiji in Osaka.
Finlay has also played for Scotland U18 as well as Edinburgh U16 and U18. A contracted member of Scottish Rugby’s Academy, he played for Haddington before switching to Heriot’s.
