The Wight stuff for Warriors

Scotland Sevens star Scott Wight has joined Gregor Townsend’s Glasgow Warriors as they jet off to Nova Scotia for their pre-season fixture.

The former Melrose man gets his place due to the injury to Gregor Hunter.

The 28-man squad also consists of Wight’s Melrose teammate Mark Robertson, Selkirk’s Lee Jones and Grayson Hart, who played for Gala last season.

The Warriors team to play Canada in Halifax on Saturday (kick-off 7pm UK time) will be announced on Friday and the game will be shown live on BBC Alba.
