A statement read: “Glasgow Warriors have completed the signing of versatile back-rower Cameron Neild on a deal until the end of the season. Manchester-born Neild brings with him a wealth of rugby experience, having made over 100 appearances at Sale Sharks between 2013 and 2022.

“The 28-year-old joined Worcester ahead of the 2022/23 season, linking back up with his old head coach Steve Diamond, and he immediately made his mark on the club by being named captain for their opening match of the season away to London Irish.

“The 6ft 1in back-rower will add valuable depth to the Glasow playing squad at a time where several back-row players are unavailable due to international duty and injury. The former England U20 linked up with the Glasgow Warriors squad on Monday and will be available for selection for the club’s upcoming URC game at Leinster on November 26.”

Neild said: “I’m delighted to join Glasgow as it has been a tricky time for me with what happened at Worcester. However, I’m thrilled to be joining such a prestigious club and to get back to doing the job I love – playing rugby.

“It’s all happened pretty quickly, and everyone has been really welcoming – I have enjoyed my first few days at the club. My goal now is to get back out on the pitch, play some good rugby and win some rugby matches.”

Glasgow boss Franco Smith added: “We are pleased to be able to bring Cameron into the squad. He’s an experienced campaigner and will be a valuable asset to us in the coming months while Rory (Darge) and Thomas (Gordon) recover from their injuries.

“Cameron joined us on Monday and has already shown to be a very diligent professional both on and off the pitch. It’s an exciting time at the club and we’re looking forward to having Cameron with us on our journey.”
