GLASGOW WARRIORS have handed Argentinean tight-head prop Lucio Sordoni a permanent deal and also agreed a Super6 partnership contract with homegrown hooker Gregor Hiddleston.

Both players have been training with Warriors since pre-season, and while Sordoni played in the first two rounds of the United Rugby Championship, Hiddleston has been impressing with his all-action performances at open-side flanker for Stirling Wolves in Super6.

Sordoni has been capped four times by his country to date, most recently in the Rugby Championship against New Zealand in November 2020, and the 24-year-old joins on a two-year contract subject to visa.

Born in Dumfries, 20-year-old Hiddleston joins on a partnership contract with Stirling Wolves. Having initially honed his skills at Dumfries Saints and GHA, the hooker – who is also equally comfortable in the back-row – has impressed for the men from Bridgehaugh, catching the eye with his physicality and dynamism with ball in hand.

First called into the Scotland U20 setup ahead of the 2022 U20 Six Nations, Hiddleston has made six appearances for the age-grade side, including in the recent Summer Series. He was also part of the Glasgow side that claimed victory in the Junior 1872 Cup at Scotstoun in November 2021, as well as having boxed competitively outside of his rugby career.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with both of these exciting front row talents,” said Warriors head coach Franco Smith.

“Lucio has impressed us with this work ethic and a grit in both games and in training and has thoroughly earned his long-term contact with us.

“Gregor is someone the club have been watching closely during his time with the Stirling Wolves and we’re pleased to be able to offer him the opportunity to grow and develop as part of our squad.”
