SEBASTIAN CANCELLIERE has agreed terms on a contract extension with Glasgow Warriors, which will keep the Argentinean winger at the Scotstoun club for another two seasons up to the summer of 2025.

The 29-year-old was recently selected as Warriors’ players’ player of the year having scored nine tries in 14 appearances for the club, despite missing two-and-a-half months between mid-February and last weekend with a knee injury. He has been on the books since the summer of 2021, and was selected for Argentina’s recent training camp meaning he is very much in the frame to feature in this Autumn’s World Cup.

“I’m extremely happy to be staying at Scotstoun,” said Cancelliere. “We’ve got an incredibly talented group of players here, and I feel like we’re really building something as a group.

“I love the way we play rugby and I feel so comfortable in the systems and setup we play here. It’s the way I love to play and this season has been so much fun to be involved with.

“Glasgow is also a fantastic city to live and work – some people might have concerns about the weather, but those sort of things don’t matter when you love being here! My wife and I are really settled here and I’m enjoying every part of it.

“We have a massive home game this Saturday [at home against Munster in the play-off quarter-finals of the URC] and the supporters showed how much they care about the club down at the Scarlets last weekend – we love to see them getting involved and enjoying it, because we couldn’t do it without them. I love representing this club and the Warrior Nation.”

 

Head coach Franco Smith added: “We’re pleased to be able to secure Sebastian’s services for the next couple of seasons – he is a model professional and someone with whom we love to work as a coaching group.

“His drive and determination to be the best version of himself as a player is seen by the work he puts in on the training field, and his performances this season have been excellent.

“He has fully bought in to what we are looking to build here and we look forward to continuing to work with him.”
