Scrum-half Jamie Dobie will link back up with Glasgow later this week after a loan spell in New Zealand with National Provincial Championship side Bay of Plenty, but is to undergo an assessment on a hamstring injury which is expected to sideline him for a number of weeks.

Gregor Brown – who graduated from an academy to a senior contract during the summer – has re-joined the training group after successfully recovering from his groin injury.

Meanwhile, winger Logan Trotter and fly-half Joel Hodgson – who both trained at Scotstoun during pre-season – have departed the club to pursue new opportunities. Prop Lucio Sordoni, scrum-half Cameron Jones and fly-half Will Hunt all continue to train with the squad.
