Calvin Howarth Joins Glasgow

Calvin Howarth will be joining Glasgow Rugby on loan from Edinburgh Rugby next month. Glasgow need him as stand-off back-up for Tommy Hayes following Barry Irving's knee injury earlier this month."We are pleased to announce that Calvin will be joining the Glasgow squad on loan," David Jordan, Glasgow's Chief Executive, said today. The loan starts on Friday [1 March].Irving, Glasgow's Scotland A stand-off, suffered cruciate ligament damage during training two weeks ago. The injury has required surgery, which will keep him out of action for several months."With only two recognised stand-offs in our group, when Barry was ruled out for the rest of the season, we felt it was essential that we had good positional cover for Tommy Hayes for our remaining Scottish/Welsh League matches," David Jordan added. 'the rules of the competition restrict teams signing new players after 31 January but do allow player loans up to 1 March. We approached Edinburgh's management about the possibility of getting a player from them on loan, and we were delighted that they were sympathetic to our request and willing to assist us."Richie Dixon, Glasgow's Head Coach, said: "When Edinburgh suggested that Calvin Howarth may be a candidate we were pleased to be able to confirm our willingness to bring him into our squad temporarily, knowing that he is a quality player and would blend well into our group. Calvin was fully consulted before any arrangement was concluded, and on his agreement we completed the formalities."However, a tear in a knee cartilage will prevent Howarth from making his debut for Glasgow until later next month. "We were advised that Calvin has just undergone a minor cartilage repair, which will mean he will not be available to participate for the next few weeks," Richie Dixon added. "However, with nine league games to play, seven in April and May, he will certainly play an active role in our group."Nick Oswald, Edinburgh Rugby's Chief Executive, said: "We are pleased to co-operate with Glasgow on this matter. It helps them with cover in a key position, and it could offer Calvin the opportunity to play some professional rugby for the rest of the season. We wish him the best of luck in this loan arrangement".Calvin Howarth will be joining Glasgow Rugby on loan from Edinburgh Rugby next month.
