Ali Price signs up for more at Glasgow Warriors

·3-min read

Scotland, Lions and Glasgow Warriors scrum-half has put pen to paper on a new deal at the United Rugby Championship outfit, it was announced on Thursday.

28-year-old Price, who recently hit 100 games for Glasgow, has set a target to continue establishing himself as one of the best number nines on the planet.

Price, who turned out for the British & Irish Lions this year, believes he has further scope to take his game to new heights after inking a one-year contract.

Over the moon

After agreeing his new deal, he told Glasgow’s website: “I’m over the moon to re-sign.

“My whole career has been with this club, since coming here as a 20-year-old. Everything I’ve managed to achieve in my career to date I owe to the coaches and team-mates I’ve had in the Glasgow environment, and I’m excited to keep going.

“It’s been an incredibly exciting time for me, and this week has been a bit crazy with the way it’s all panned out – captaining the team on my 100th appearance and then this, there haven’t been many weeks like it.

“I feel like I’ve matured as a person as well as a rugby player while here.

“I just want to keep getting better. I’ve still got a fair few years left in me, and I want to be one of the best in the world in my position. I’m excited to keep improving and show what I can offer to this club.”

Head coach Danny Wilson is delighted to secure Price’s services for another season.

He said: “It’s great news that Ali has committed his future to Glasgow Warriors.

“He’s a world-class scrum-half who’s hugely passionate about playing for this club.

“Over the last two or three years, Ali’s development has been clear to see at both club level and on the international stage, which culminated in him becoming a Test Lion in the summer.

“We’re all looking forward to continuing to work with him in the coming seasons.”

Wasps to appeal Brad Shields’ suspension

Wasps have announced that they will appeal Brad Shields’ four-week ban in the hope it will be overturned in time for their Champions Cup match with Toulouse on Sunday.

The back-row was suspended by an independent disciplinary hearing after he was red carded for a dangerous tackle in Wasps’ Round One clash against Munster last weekend.

The panel judged that Shields made contact with the head and neck area of Munster front-row Dave Kilcoyne at the CBS Arena, thereby warranting his red card.

Wasps, however, are convinced it was harsh and with an appeal likely to be held on Thursday evening, a successful challenge could mean Shields becomes available for the Stade Ernest Wallon showdown.
