HUW JONES appears to have played his last game for Glasgow Warriors after undergoing surgery on a foot injury sustained during the club’s European Challenge Cup defeat to Montpellier a fortnight ago.
The 27-year-old is not expected to be fit again in time to take part in the Rainbow Cup (which kicks off next weekend and will run through to the middle of June), before joining French side Bayonne in the summer.
Stand-off Adam Hastings – who will also leave the club this summer, to join Gloucester – will miss the start of the Rainbow Cup with a facial fracture suffered against Montpellier, but has a chance of returning before the end of the campaign.
It is a similar story with Scott Cummings, who has undergone surgery on the hand injury he sustained playing for Scotland against Ireland in the Six Nations, with the second-row hopeful of returning to action in a matter of weeks rather than months.
Meanwhile, it has been announced that former Scotland Under-20s captain Rory Darge will now link up with Warriors immediately and be in contention to play against Benetton next Saturday.
The flanker had previously committed to making the switch west from Edinburgh during the summer.
