Career details:

Scrum Half Rob Chrystie made his Bath debut against NEC Harlequins, in the 18-9 win in February 2002 at the Recreation Ground, coming on for the injured Gareth Cooper. Rob, who was signed from Melrose and also played club rugby for Hawick, made two appearances for Bath Rugby in 2001/2002. His second appearance was his first full start for the club in the narrow defeat to Sale at Heywood Road. He played for three quarters of the match before making way for USA international Kevin Dalzell who had recently been signed. Rob had previously won caps at under-21 international level for his native Scotland while based north of the border. A darting, elusive player with a strong pass off both hands, Chrystie was in many ways reminiscent of the great Scottish scrum half of the 1990’s, Gary Armstrong, but despite that he never really came alive at the Rec. and was transferred to Coventry at the end of his one and only season at the club.
