Brandon Thomson is “super excited” to learn from incoming Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Dave Rennie.

The 22-year-old stand-off/full-back will return to Scotstoun from the Stormers of South Africa on a permanent contract ahead of the 2017/18 season, subject to medical.

He impressed during a short loan spell earlier this year and played three times for Glasgow, scoring a try on his debut against Ulster.

Thomson said: “I’m very excited to be heading back to Scotstoun. I really enjoyed my short stint there earlier in the year and I’m looking forward to many more good times.

“The relationships I built in Glasgow was definitely a big contributing factor to going back, they are a great bunch of guys and made me feel at home right from the start.

“Dave Rennie is an excellent coach and has done very well with the Chiefs, so I’m super excited to have the opportunity to learn and be part of his set-up.

“The likes of [fellow Stormers] Huw Jones and Oli Kebble also being there is awesome, it’s like bringing a little part of home with me, and I’m sure we’ll do great together in Glasgow colours.

“The crowds at Scotstoun are absolutely amazing. To have a packed stadium week in, week out really makes playing there so exciting. I can’t wait to play in front of the Warriors supporters again.”

Competition

Glasgow Warriors Assistant Coach Jason O’Halloran stated: “Brandon really impressed during his short loan spell earlier this year and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us on a two year contract.

“He is able to play in several positions across the backline and will add to the competition we have at fly-half with Finn Russell, Peter Horne and Adam Hastings all battling for the number 10 shirt.”
