Two Additions To Glasgow Squad

Glasgow Rugby are pleased to announce two additions to the squad for the coming season. Kenny Sinclair, the Scotland sevens scrum half, has been enlisted from Glasgow Hawks, and Andrew Wilson, the former Scotland Under-21 flank forward, has been signed from Aberdeen Grammar School FP."We"re delighted that both Kenny and Andrew have joined us," David Jordan, Glasgow Rugby's chief executive, said today. "Kenny has proved himself with Hawks as well as the national sevens squad, and Andrew has confirmed the potential he showed in the Scotland under-21 team a couple of years ago."Wilson is fit for consideration for selection for Glasgow's opening match of the season, the friendly against NEC Harlequins at Hughenden on Friday (kick-off 7.30pm). However, Sinclair will not be selected for that match. Nor will Rory Kerr, Glasgow's international wing. Both players are being rested from rugby action this week after the Commonwealth Games sevens in Manchester last weekend.Profiles of Kenny Sinclair and Andrew Wilson:KENNY SINCLAIRScrum half.
