Glasgow Warriors snap up new fly-half

  • Adam Hastings will join Pro12 Glasgow Warriors on a two-year deal
  • The 20-year-old has also represented Scotland at under-20 level
  • Hastings has been at the Recreation Ground since 2014
Glasgow Warriors have signed Adam Hastings on a two-year deal from Premiership side Bath, which will tie the fly-half in until May 2019.

Son of former Scotland captain Gavin, Hastings has been at the Recreation Ground since 2014, making 12 appearances for the Premiership side.

The fly-half will arrive in the summer and will run out at Scotstoun, subject to a medical.

“From a young age I wanted to play for Scotland and I believe playing in Scotland is the right decision for me at this stage of my career,” said Hastings.

“As a young 10 it’s important to get game-time and hopefully I’ll get that opportunity in Glasgow.

“I’m excited about working under Dave Rennie as I’ve heard he is a world class coach.

“There are some quality players in Glasgow and I can’t wait to get up there and start working with them.

“I like to run the ball, I’m quite an instinctive player and I like to have a crack. I like the way Finn (Russell) plays and I can’t wait to get up there and learn from him.

“Glasgow are flying at the moment, they’ve got a good thing going and seem to be a really tight-knit team.

“Qualifying for the Quarter-Finals in Europe was a big statement of where the club is going and I’m excited to be joining them next season.”

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: “Adam trained with us a couple of years ago and he has really developed during his time at Bath, working with the likes of George Ford and Rhys Priestland.

“It’s great that he has decided to move back to Scotland and I’m sure he’ll fit in very well at Scotstoun next season.”
