New deals for Glasgow duo

Glasgow Warriors forwards Ryan Wilson and James Eddie have agreed new deals with the club.

Scotland flanker Wilson has signed a two-year contract extension, with flanker Eddie extending by a year.

Wilson, 24, joined Glasgow in 2010 and has made 78 appearances for the club and he has nine Scotland caps, playing in all five Six Nations matches this year.

Wilson told the club's website: "Playing for the Warriors has given me the opportunity to go on and play for Scotland and I'm really enjoying my rugby just now.

"There is a great atmosphere around the club and there is huge strength in depth within the squad. It was an easy decision for me to stay in Glasgow and I'm looking forward to the next couple of years."

Eddie, 28, has been at the Warriors for nine years and has made 104 appearances for the club.

He said: "Glasgow is my hometown club and I'm really happy to be staying. We've got a really competitive squad and my ambition is to win a major trophy with the Warriors.

"I love being part of the club and I'm very excited about the direction it's heading in."

Head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Getting Ryan and James signed up adds further depth to the competitive group challenging for places in our back-row next season.

"Ryan has improved every year since he's been at the club and is one of the most skilful back row players in the game.

"He's very quick and has really good offload skills. He's put a lot of effort into improving physically and he tackles low and gets up and competes for the ball, which is what we like to see in our players.

"James is very popular within the squad and he's had an excellent season so far. He works very hard to improve himself and has made a big impact in a number of games this season.

"He has also played very well for Scotland 7s this year and was a key player for us when we won the Melrose 7s. James is someone we know we can always rely on and we're delighted he's staying next season.

"We always look to re-sign players we believe can drive us on to become a better side and Ryan and James will have big roles to play in our future."
