Richie Gray to return to Glasgow

Scotland and British & Irish Lions international Richie Gray will be returning to his first professional club, after agreeing a two-year deal with Glasgow Warriors ahead of the 2020/21 season.


 

 


The second-rower becomes incoming head coach Danny Wilson’s first new signing for the Warriors, with the former fans favourite re-joining the club from reigning French Top14 champions Toulouse, subject to medical.

Gray made his Glasgow debut away to Ulster in March 2009 before making his first start for his hometown club two months later in a 30-9 victory over Connacht at Firhill.


He went on to make 47 appearances in his first spell with the Warriors over four years, playing a part in a host of famous moments including a last-gasp winning try against Bath in the 2011/12 Heineken Cup.

Gray spent a season at English Premiership side Sale Sharks following his departure from the club in 2012, before a three-year stint at Castres preceded his time at Toulouse.

The 30-year-old has played 51 times for Toulouse and played a key part in Les Rouge et Noir's successes last season, helping the French side to a Heineken Champions Cup semi-final and the Top14 title.

He has also excelled on the international stage throughout his career, winning 55 caps for Scotland since his debut in 2010.
