Another Scottish international leaving Glasgow Warriors? Possible exit for Nick Grigg
Glasgow could be set to lose another Scotland international with clubs across Europe and in Japan chasing the signature of centre Nick Grigg.
Wasps and La Rochelle are among the leading contenders to recruit the 27-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer.
Warriors have opened discussions with New Zealand-born Grigg, who has been one of their most important and effective players in the past two seasons under Dave Rennie.
He now faces a huge decision over his future, and could follow Scotland colleagues Stuart Hogg, Finn Russell and Jonny Gray, who is close to agreeing a move to Exeter Chiefs, out of Scotstoun.

One of Welsh Rugby’s biggest characters on and off the pitch, RugbyPass travelled to Brecon to see how life after rugby is treating Andy Powell.
The centre was named in the Pro14 dream team of the 2017-18 campaign and nominated again last term after helping Glasgow to the Celtic Park final, where they lost narrowly to Leinster.
Grigg, eligible for Scotland through his grandfather, was signed by Rennie’s predecessor Gregor Townsend in 2015 after sending over a showreel from his time in New Zealand club rugby.
He broke into the Glasgow team following strong performances for Stirling County, and became a mainstay of Rennie’s backline with his explosiveness, dynamism and footwork.
Capped nine times, his defence – arguably the weakest aspect of his game – improved markedly last season, particularly during his three Six Nations starts. But alongside Huw Jones and Rory Hutchinson, Grigg missed out on a place in Townsend’s Rugby World Cup squad.
RugbyPass had the pleasure of interviewing Ireland and Lions star David Wallace.

Retallick and whitelock still good enough to take on the best but they have to produce the quality several games in a row. Who do the Kiwis have after they and Scott b? At least the front row will be okay. Back row interesting coz Sam came and Ardie look sorta essential but can it work? Works better with brodies work rate but still.. what do you think nick. Can they get away without the backup locks?Go to comments
He’s probably right. The Boks are going to play like the Boks and that’s hard to shake but on saying that the Boks were done in Brighton and pressured by Japan in Japan. Dunno what tongas got in the front row but their loosies will be powerful and their back three very dangerous. Maybe Adam coleman at lock and sekope kepu up front?Go to comments
