Ali Price extends Glasgow contract

Glasgow scrum-half Ali Price has extended his contract by two years.

The 22-year-old has signed on until May 2018 after starting five games this season to take his total Warriors appearances to 16.

The Scotland Under-20 international, who joined Glasgow from Bedford, said: "I've loved life in Glasgow since moving up here and the last few months have been great, as I've played regularly and I feel I've made a positive impact.

"Being able to train and play with quality players at Scotstoun has also allowed me to improve aspects of my game."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Ali is continually developing as a scrum-half and it's great news that he's staying with us for the next couple of years.

"He's worked hard on his game over the past 12 months, and you can see the confidence he now has in his kicking game and taking on the defence with ball in hand.

"The most important attributes of a scrum-half are a fast and accurate pass, as well as a high fitness level and Ali has done well in these areas this season, seizing the opportunity to play for us in some important games."
