GLASGOW Warriors forward Gregor Brown has been rewarded for a promising first season as a professional with a new two-year contract. The 21-year-old, who can play across the back row, said he believes he can continue to improve under the guidance of head coach Franco Smith and his coaching team.

I feel like this is the best possible place for me to develop my game,” he said in a Warriors press release. “Franco has really pushed me to develop since he came in last summer, which is something I massively appreciate and I can’t wait to keep pushing for selection next season.

“It’s been a good first full year as a professional. I enjoyed getting a good chunk of game time at the start of the season, and the coaches have been identifying areas of my game in which I can improve as the season’s gone on.

“I just want to keep working hard and developing – this is a great group of boys to come to training with every day, and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”

Brown, who graduated from the FOSROC Scottish Rugby academy into the pro ranks at Scotstoun shortly before Smith arrived last summer, has impressed the South African with his ability and his willingness to learn. “Gregor is a young player with a lot of potential, and we’re pleased that he has re-signed with us as he continues his development,” the head coach said.

“He listens to the feedback we give him as coaches and is keen to put in the hard work to be the best player he can be. We look forward to working with him next season and continuing to help him as he begins his journey as a professional.”
