Braid set to leave Warriors

Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that utility back Connor Braid will leave the club at the end of the season.

The Canadian international, 24, joined the Scotstoun side last summer but has made just seven appearances, scoring four conversions and a penalty.

Braid was sent to London Scottish on loan in December but returned to Glasgow two months later as he filled in for some of the club's Scotland call-ups during the RBS 6 Nations.

He said: "I would like to thank everyone at Glasgow Warriors for giving me the opportunity to play and be involved at this great club.

"I have learned a lot in my time here, and will use my experiences as I look to progress in my career."

Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: "We've seen Connor develop hugely over his short spell here and at London Scottish.

"We've called upon his services a number of times throughout the season and he has always stepped up to the plate.

"He is a great person to work with and we hope he continues to prosper and shine wherever he goes."
