The Scrum February 12, 2018
Glasgow Warriors’ up-and coming star George Horne has thanked the coaching staff for having faith in him after he extended his contract with the club.
The 22-year-old scrum-half has hit the ground running in his first year as a professional, scoring eight tries in 16 appearances for the club.
He was involved in the 15-15 Guinness PRO14 draw with the Dragons last Friday and will be in the frame to take on the Cheetahs this coming weekend.
The younger brother of Scotland cap Pete said: “I’m delighted to be staying at Scotstoun. Growing up I always wanted to play for Glasgow Warriors and to get a good chance this season has been a lot of fun and I can’t wait for next year now.
“I was targeting the November and Six Nations periods for game-time this season, but I’ve been fortunate that the coaches have rewarded performances in training and it’s been great to get so many minutes under my belt.
“Mike Blair has really helped me this season and it’s been really positive, but there are areas of my game I need to work on and hopefully I can continue to do that.
“I’m just taking it one game at a time. My main goal at the moment is to get as many minutes under my belt as possible and contribute well to the team.”
Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Dave Rennie added: “It’s brilliant that George is staying with us next season. I think he has been excellent this season and we’d expect him to get better and better.”
