Scotland international Huw Jones will leave Super Rugby franchise the Stormers at the end of 2017 to join Glasgow Warriors on a two-year contract.
The centre started his professional career in Cape Town after coming through the amateur ranks, before making his mark for the Stormers. Jones made his Scotland bow against Japan in 2016 and scored a brace during a man-of-the-match effort against Australia later that year.
The 23-year-old is committed to the Stormers and Western Province for their respective Super Rugby and Currie Cup campaigns this year.
Jones said that whilst he will always cherish his time in Cape Town, he felt the time was right to move back to the Northern Hemisphere.
“It felt like the time was right to join Glasgow, having enjoyed my time in Cape Town playing Vodacom Super Rugby. Obviously playing for Scotland, it makes a lot of sense to be playing in Scotland and I was ready to make the move,” he told the Stormers’ official website.
Jones has been tipped for British & Irish Lions selection this year, with the centre a good Six Nations away from selection according to pundits
