HOOKER Fraser Brown has re-committed to Glasgow Warriors by signing a contract extension which is believed to be for one more season.

The 33-year-old, who has been capped 61 times by Scotland but was a notable omission from Gregor Townsend‘s World Cup training squad earlier this month, has made 140 appearances for the club to date since his debut back in 2013.

No forward has scored more tries in Glasgow Warriors colours than Brown, whose try in last month’s Plaster It Purple victory over the Scarlets saw him take his total to 25.

He co-captained the club, alongside Ryan Wilson, from 2020 to 2022, his performances typifying his leadership style as he led from the front with and without the ball, and he has crossed the line nine times in 16 appearances during the current season.

The news comes two days before Glasgow play in their first ever European final. They face Toulon in the climax of this year’s Challenge Cup on Friday night in Dublin. Brown has also been selected for a World XV against the Barbarians at Twickenham on 28th May.

“For me, it was a pretty simple decision really,” said Brown. “This is the best place for me to enjoy my rugby and coming to work day in, day out, and it’s the best decision for my family. As soon as the offer came through, it was a straightforward choice for me.

“The way we’ve been playing and training here, as well as the atmosphere when you come in every day and even down to the way we review each match, it gives you a real sense of freshness and it’s a brilliant place to play rugby. There’s still so much more to come from this group, too, and I feel in a really great spot physically and mentally.

“We want to finish this season on a high, and it’s important to have something tangible at the end of this campaign. For everyone associated with this club, from the players to the backroom team to the Warrior Nation, Friday is a big occasion, and we’re determined to go out there and do ourselves justice.”

Head coach Franco Smith added: “Fraser is a model professional, and is someone who embodies what it means to be a Glasgow Warrior.

“His performances this season have shown exactly what he brings to this group of players and he is someone who consistently drives our standards and looks to get the best out of himself and others.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with him and continuing on the journey together.”

  2. That’s a pretty enviable line up that Glasgow have at that position for another season. Really hope the team can get the job done against Toulon! Go Glasgow!
