Rob Carmichael


6ft 11in lock Rob Carmichael joined Edinburgh Rugby from Leicester Tigers on an initial loan in February 2024, ahead of penning a three-year deal with the capital club.

Carmichael was born and raised in Hong Kong after his Scottish father, and English/Welsh mother, emigrated to Asia in the 90’s.

He came through the ranks at Sandy Bay RFC before the family returned to the UK in 2019.

That year he joined the Tigers academy, making two Premiership Cup appearances alongside representing England U20, remaining eligible for Scotland by ancestry.
