“There is still a lot of rugby to be played this season and I’m looking forward to some big games ahead.”

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: “Ruaridh (Jackson) has been a fantastic ambassador for the club during his six years in Glasgow and been a key driver of the club's improvement in recent seasons.

“I've really enjoyed working with Ruaridh and I'm confident that he will be successful in the next stage of his rugby career.

“We wish him all the best when he moves on at the end of the season.”
