Glasgow Warriors have confirmed the signing of Australia international scrum-half Nick Frisby who has joined the club on a two-year deal ahead of the new season, subject to visa and medical.
The 25-year-old has played five times for the Wallabies and has spent the majority of his professional career playing for the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby.
Also capable of playing at fly-half, Frisby spent four months of last season in the Top 14 with Bordeaux Begles where he made nine appearances and scored one try.
During his time in Australia he racked up 69 points in 66 matches for the Brisbane franchise, including 11 tries, the first of which came on his debut against the Sharks in 2012.
Frisby’s versatility made him a key member of the Reds squad and he competed with Will Genia and Quade Cooper for the 9 and 10 jerseys. In 2015 he showed just how versatile he is, spending seven games as his side’s starting fly-half due to injury. In 2016 he took over the role as Reds’ starting scrum-half and featured in all 15 Super Rugby games.
Nick won his first cap for Australia against England in the 2016 June Test window and in the same year he went on to play a further four matches for the Wallabies against New Zealand, Wales and England. He was the first-choice scrum-half for Australia Under-20 at the Junior World Championship in South Africa in 2012.
The Australian is the second international to sign for the Warriors ahead of the 2018/19 season after USA Eagle David Tameilau was announced in June.
