ALI PRICE has signed a two-year contract extension with Glasgow Warriors which will keep him at the club until May 2020.

The 24-year-old, who made his Scotland debut against Georgia at Rugby Park last November and has since represented the national team 11 times, and who scored a try in last Saturday’s historic 53-24 victory over Australia, says he is full of love for the club he has just re-committed to.

 

 

“Playing at Scotstoun is a feeling I can’t really explain. I love the buzz. Glasgow fans love their team and as a player I love that. I love running out here and they give us the extra motivation we need,” he said.

“It was an incredibly easy decision for me to make. I’ve been up here for four years now and I’m loving it and the club’s in a really good place.”

“I’m staying here because I want to win things. I feel like the squad and coaching staff we’ve got here have the ability to do that and it’s really exciting.”

The scrum-half has scored eight tries in his 48 appearances for the Warriors.

“We’re rapt that Ali has signed up. He’s developed into a top class 9 and the speed that he brings is a big part of how we’re trying to play the game. He’s a good man and he loves the club and it’s great for us to have an international scrum-half committing long-term,” said Warriors head coach Dave Rennie.

While the retention of Price is undoubtedly a huge boost for the Warriors, he will be without his regular partner in crime at half-back next season with Finn Russell heading off to Racing 92 in the summer.
