MacArthur commits to Glasgow

Glasgow Warriors forward Pat MacArthur has signed an extension to his contract which ties him to the club until May 2016.

The 25-year-old hooker has committed his future to the Warriors alongside Al Kellock, Tom Ryder, Tommy Seymour, Peter Murchie and Mike Cusack, who have all recently agreed new deals.

MacArthur said: "I'm really pleased to have signed this new deal and commit to the club. It's great playing my rugby here and it's great to be part of this squad.

"It's about all of us working together and getting success with this team.

"We are all pushing each other to get better as players and I'm certainly no different. There is terrific competition for the number two shirt with Dougie (Hall) and Fin (Gillies) but it's about making the team as strong as it can be.

"I know I have to keep working hard on my game, keep looking at ways to improve if I'm to keep challenging for my place in the starting line-up."

MacArthur, who has represented Scotland at U18, U19 and U20 levels, signed his first professional deal with Glasgow in 2007 and has made 53 appearances for the club.
