Glasgow Warriors have completed the signing of winger DTH van der Merwe, who has re-joined the Guinness PRO14 side with immediate effect.
The Canada international has signed a deal at Scotstoun until May 2020. The club’s all-time leading try scorer spent six seasons with the Warriors from 2009 until 2015, before moving to the Scarlets and most recently Newcastle Falcons.
During his previous spell at the club, van der Merwe scored 43 tries in 96 appearances and in his final game scored a try in the win over Munster in the Guinness PRO12 Final in Belfast.
A PRO12 title-winner with both Glasgow and the Scarlets, the 31-year-old scored 19 tries in 41 appearances during his two-year spell with the Scarlets, the last of which came against Munster in the 2017 Guinness PRO12 Final in Dublin, when he lifted the trophy for the second time in his career.
DTH, who was born in South Africa before moving to Canada with his family as a teenager, has scored 32 tries in 51 Tests for his country and has played in three Rugby World Cups. He is Canada’s all-time leading try scorer.
He scored against Bath on his debut for Newcastle Falcons last September and after three appearances for the English Premiership side, van der Merwe now returns to Glasgow to link up with Dave Rennie’s squad for the rest of this campaign and for a further two seasons.
