Glasgow Warriors hold on to Test Lion Ali Price
The 28-year-old follows Lions’ teammate Zander Fagerson in extending his stay at Scotstoun, signing a multi-year deal with Danny Wilson’s side.
Price reached a century of appearances for the Scottish URC side following last weekend’s match against La Rochelle in the Heineken Champions Cup.
Price’s leadership saw Wilson hand the scrum-half the captaincy for the first time at the Stade Marcel Deflandre.
“I’m over the moon to re-sign,” Price toldglasgowwarriors.org. “My whole career has been with this club, since coming hereas a 20-year-old. Everything I’ve managed to achieve in my career to date I oweto the coaches and team-mates I’ve had in the Glasgow environment, and I’m excited to keep going.
“It’s been an incredibly exciting time for me, and this week has been a bit crazy with the way it’s all panned out – captaining the team on my 100th appearance and then this, there haven’t been many weeks like it! I feel like I’ve matured as a person as well as a rugby player while here, though.
“I just want to keep getting better. I’ve still got a fair few years left in me, and I want to be one of the best in the world in my position. I’m excited to keep improving and show what I can offer to this club.”
Head Coach Danny Wilson said: “It’s great news that Ali has committed his future to Glasgow Warriors.
“He’s a world-class scrum-half who’s hugely passionate about playing for this club.
“Over the last two or three years, Ali’s development has been clear to see at both club level and on the international stage, which culminated in him becoming a Test Lion in the summer.
“We’re all looking forward to continuing to work with him in the coming seasons.”
Price’s form saw him selected for all three Tests for the British and Irish Lions in South Africa this summer, becoming the first Warrior to earn a cap for the invitational side since Richie Gray in 2013.
