GLASGOW WARRIORS record appearance holder Rob Harley has signed for French Pro D2 – second tier – side US Carcassonne on a two year contract.

The 32-year-old back-five forward, who has played 267 games for Warriors since his debut back in September 2010, and who has been capped 23 times by Scotland, became a free agent at the end of the 2021-22 season.

  1. Thought he was treated shabbily at the end by Glasgow really hope he has a good financial deal at Carcassonne

  2. Great for Harley ,should bring his experience to Carcassonne to the benefit of that club. I always work on the assumption any player who annoys Munster as much as Rob did cannot be all bad. Though I still feel that Glasgow might have held on to him for one more year.

  3. Great news, hope Harley enjoys his time in France. I’m sur he will prove to be a great addition to the Pro D2 Shame his new club have him identified with flag of St George rather than a Saltire.

    • Actually, i’ve phoned US Carcassonne to let them know about the flag mistake.
      It should be a great experience down there, rugby and life style.
      All the best Rob.
