MURRAY MCCALLUM will swap Glasgow Warriors for Worcester Warriors at the start of January, having signed a contract with the English Premiership club which will run until the end of the 2022-23 season.
The 25-year-old prop, who was capped three times by Scotland in 2018, joined Glasgow on a short-term deal in the summer, having spent the previous five years on the books at Edinburgh.
He will link up with some familiar faces at Sixways, including former Edinburgh team-mates Rory Sutherland and Duhan van der Merwe, as well as Director of Rugby, Alan Solomons, who was head coach in the Scottish capital when McCallum was coming through the academy.
“The Premiership is the ultimate test for a prop and a league I have always wanted to challenge myself in,” said McCallum.
“Knowing Solly for my Edinburgh days and then meeting JT I am really sold on the club’s vision and I’m excited to be part of their journey.
“You can see the club’s ambitions with the appointment of Steve Diamond as Lead Rugby Consultant and he is someone I look forward to working with. I can’t wait to get started.”
