Scotland international Adam Hastings has secured a return to North of the Border and is re-joining former club Glasgow Warriors when his contract with Gloucester runs out at the end of the season.

Hastings, 27, the son of Scotland legend Gavin, started his career at Bath before moving to Glasgow in 2017, establishing himself as the lynchpin of Dave Rennie’s ambitious Scotstoun outfit.

RugbyPass understands that Hastings, the third member of his family after his father and uncle Scott to play for Scotland, was close to staying at Gloucester before talks stalled, allowing Glasgow to nip in with a late offer.

He hopes to get his career back on track following an injury-ravaged three years in Gloucester that had restricted him to just playing 16 games in all competitions in the last two seasons.

In the last 18 months, he has needed four operations on shoulder, ankle and knee injuries, which started in his last appearance for Scotland against Fiji in November 2022.

Hastings has made six appearances for the Cherry and Whites season this season, scoring 51 points, including a try on his last appearance in a win over Castres in the Challenge Cup a month ago.

Hastings is even weighing up seeing a witch doctor in a bid to put his injury problems behind him: “My sister bought me a voucher to see a shaman in Barcelona, a witch doctor, so I’ll need to use that in the summer, maybe.

“I just went on this run of injury after injury. I just couldn’t quite believe it was happening, to be honest. You hear about boys having these injury troubles, and you always think, ‘that will never be me’.

“But then I’m there with my fourth operation of the year, kind of staring down the barrel,” he said after making his latest comeback from injury.
