Glasgow Warriors fullback Stuart Hogg will leave the club at the end of the season.
The 26-year-old has made 109 appearances (100 starts) for Glasgow Warriors since joining the club in 2010, scoring 29 tries so far and amassing 215 points. The fullback marked his breakthrough season in 2011/12 by scoring a hat-trick away to reigning PRO12 champions Munster.
Hogg has since gone on to play a key role in many of the club’s most memorable occasions, including the 2014/15 Guinness PRO12 title-winning campaign, and Glasgow’s run to a first-ever European quarter-final in 2016/17.
Stuart Hogg said:
“This is a decision that’s taken a great deal of thought as I’ve loved my nine seasons at Glasgow Warriors. I said I would decide my next step for family and rugby reasons and feel now is the right time to gain new rugby experiences and push myself in different situations where I will be challenged and hopefully improve further.
“I’m proud of what I have achieved with Glasgow Warriors and Scotland so far and would like to thank the club and Scottish Rugby for all their support. They have supported me when I had made my decision to move on and I know they did all they could and I’m grateful for their support.
“We are still less than halfway through my final season at the Warriors and, as current Conference A leaders in the Guinness PRO14 and second in our Heineken Champions Cup pool, there’s a chance to do something special in my last season at the club. That’s the send-off I want to give the club and the fans.”
Interestingly, according to multiple reports, Hogg won’t move be moving to France on a lucrative deal, but instead has agreed a deal with Exeter Chiefs in the English Premiership.
