Peter Horne is a professional rugby player,he made his debut for Glasgow Warriors as a replacement in the Magners League match against Ulster in March 2009. His first start followed the same month against Munster at Firhill, and he signed a full-time contract in the summer.[1]

Career[edit]

His poise and incisiveness in a number of roles across the backline are welcome weapons for head coach Sean Lineen to be able to call upon. Horne is part of the Scotland 7s squad in season 2011/12, but will train and be available to play for Glasgow Warriors when these other commitments allow.

Pete was previously part of a group of Fife youngsters who achieved a rare double, playing in the Bell Baxter High School team who won the Bell Lawrie Scottish Schools Cup and then in the Howe of Fife squad who lifted the Scottish Youth League Cup. In season 2006–07, too, he was in the Bell Baxter team who won the Royal Navy schools sevens.

Later in 2007, he played for Scotland in the Home Unions’ under-18 festival in Gloucestershire, and in 2008 he played international rugby at both under-19 and under-20 levels. He was in the Scotland team who beat Italy in the under-19 international in February at Parabagio, near Milan, and he then played for the national under-20 squad in all five matches in the IRB Junior World Championship in Wales in June, starting in three of the games. He moved from Howe of Fife to West of Scotland for season 2008–09 and signed up with Glasgow Warriors a year later.

He scored all of Scotland’s points with six penalty goals in the 18-17 win against Wales in the 2009 Six Nations Under-20 Championship match at McDiarmid Park, Perth, in February. His tally was a Scottish record in the championship, and he added a penalty goal in each of the subsequent matches against France and Italy. However, that tally of 24 points was passed by Robbie McGowan later in the championship with 27.

Peter took his under-20 year’s tally to 63 points when he scored 39 in starting in all five matches in the IRB Junior World Championship in Japan in June.
