Rob Dewey is a former Scottish rugby union player who was born on 16 October 1983 and played for the Glasgow Warriors. Despite having only come onto the professional rugby scene in the 2005–06 season, a lethal combination of pace and power gave him a name amongst the Scottish rugby community.

Dewey, a former pupil of Madras College, St Andrews, first made his name in the amateur game in Scotland. He was the Scottish Premiership Division One joint top try scorer for the 2004–05 season while playing for Heriot's with 16 tries, and made four appearances (including two starts) for Edinburgh Rugby. This form earned him a professional contract with Edinburgh who signed him ahead of the 2005–06 season.[3]

He scored eight tries in just 11 games in his first year of regular professional rugby union. Unfortunately he suffered two dislocated shoulders in the same season, and so was unable to build on this tally. The injuries also prevented him from making his international debut.

Dewey made his debut for Scotland on 11 November 2006, scoring a try in the 48–6 victory over Romania.

In 2009, Dewey was included in Scotland's squad for the Rugby World Cup Sevens.[4]

Dewey retired from professional rugby at the end of the 2011–12 season after leaving Glasgow Warriors. He now breeds rare sheep at his family farm near St. Andrews. Rob married Rachael Pengelly on 28th July 2018.
