Three Hookers Added To Squad

Two of Scotland's highly rated club rugby hookers have joined up with Glasgow Warriors this week while a Welsh front rower has also signed a short term deal at Scotstoun.

With Pat MacArthur and Doug Hall on Scotland duty and Finlay Gillies and Fergus Scott both out injured, head coach Gregor Townsend has moved to bring in the three hookers to fill the gap in the Warriors roster.

Fraser Brown (pictured) and Kevin Bryce, both from Heriots, will join Gerwyn Price who has been on the radar of the Welsh regions and currently plays his rugby with Cross Keys.

The 27 year old played hooker for Neath for five years before helping Keys to the final of the British and Irish Cup last season.

Townsend said: "Fraser Brown and Kevin Bryce have been impressive for Heriots this year and Gerwyn has long been spoken of as someone with the ability to play professional rugby._It's obviously disappointing for both Finlay and Fergus to be out injured at the same time as Dougie and Pat are deservedly involved with Scotland, but I believe we have found the best possible solution for the club."

"We find ourselves in an unusual situation with all four of our hookers out of action but I"ve no doubt we have secured quality replacements in_Gerwyn, Fraser and Kevin. We will be observing them closely this week at training to assess who gets the nod to be involved against Zebre this Sunday.

"We have some big games coming up so I"ll be looking for them to show just how good they can be at this level."

"I"m sure that the three guys we"re bringing in will relish the opportunity to compete for selection in the PRO12 and I look forward working with them over the coming weeks."
