HUW Jones will be a Glasgow player again this season, having agreed to rejoin the team after just a season at Harlequins.
The Scotland international spent four largely successful seasons at Scotstoun after joining from the Stormers in 2017. Latterly, however, he felt frustrated by the lack of game time and decided to move on. A deal to join Bayonne was scrapped after the French club were relegated, leading to a move to Harlequins in time for the start of the current campaign.
“I’m really looking forward to going back to Glasgow,” Jones said. “I lived there for five years and I made a lot of friends and memories, and I’m looking forward to making more both on and off the field in the seasons ahead. There’s a great core group of players at Glasgow that want to take the club forward and I’m really keen to be a part of that.
“I’ve gained a lot of valuable experience playing for Harlequins this season and I’m excited to return and show how I’ve developed as a player, and to pull on the Glasgow Warriors jersey again.”
Now 28, Jones looks likely to be primarily considered as a centre, but can also play at full-back. “We’re really excited to bring Huw back to the club,” head coach Danny Wilson said.
“Huw has shown for both Glasgow, and more recently for Harlequins, he is a real attacking presence at both 13 and 15.
“We wanted to add to our midfield to bring depth to an already strong position and the fact Huw can genuinely play other outside back positions will further enhance our squad depth for next season.”
