Glasgow Warriors have pulled off an exciting acquisition with reports that Josh McKay will join the Scottish club from New Zealand.
The 23 year-old fullback was born in Christchurch and turned out 33 times for Canterbury before joining the Highlanders ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby season.
One of the top performers for the Highlanders in Super Rugby Aotearoa last year, McKay signed with the Crusaders for 2021, and will take up with Glasgow at the conclusion of this year’s Mitre 10 Cup in New Zealand.
“When the opportunity arose to play for Glasgow Warriors and be able to really experience Scotland it got me really excited,” McKay told glasgowwarriors.org.
“Scotland is a place I’ve always wanted visit – I’ve heard so many great things about the country and the people.
“I like attacking with the ball in hand, I’m a balanced rugby player and I think I can make an impact on both attack and defence. I really think the style of Glasgow’s play will suit me.
“I’ve watched Glasgow Warriors games on TV and I’m very excited for my first taste of northern hemisphere footy.
“I can’t wait to run out at Scotstoun in a Warriors jersey for the first time.”
