Scotland international Ruaridh Jackson has penned a new deal with Glasgow Warriors that will keep him with the Pro 14 club next season.

Jackson made his professional rugby debut for Glasgow in 2008 and switched to Wasps in 2014. After a brief stint with Harlequins, the 30-year-old rejoined Glasgow Warriors in 2017. Overall he has played 134 games for the Warriors in which he amassed 464 points.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be staying in Glasgow next season. I’ve really enjoyed it this season, so to be able to stay on for another year is awesome and I can’t wait to see where we can go," said Jackson.

“It’s been a bit different playing mostly at full-back, but I’ve absolutely loved it. It’s been great to get regular game-time and the way we play we like to spread the ball about so you still get plenty of touches and I don’t feel too left out back there!

“It’s just been fun playing again. With Dave (Rennie) coming in it has been refreshing and training has been pretty tough – we get pushed to our limits, but that’s what we need to take ourselves onto the next level. Hopefully we can finish the season on a high because it has been a great year so far.”

His performance with the Warriors earned him a recall for Scotland in 2017 and overall has featured in 32 Tests.
