Peterson Signs Warriors Extension

Greg Peterson may have missed a large portion of this season due to injury but he's gained enough respect from the Glasgow Warriors to sign a two year extension with the team. He will now be with the club through 2019. Peterson previously played in his native Australia having a short stint with the Waratahs and playing with the North Harbour Rays in the NRC. He then had a spell at Leicester before moving north to Glasgow where he has been a steady presence for the team every since. Peterson has been capped by the Eagles over a dozen times and is a near automatic selection when healthy and available.

Speaking to glasgowwarriors.org, Greg Peterson said: “I’ve enjoyed my 18 months in Glasgow. The club, the supporters and the community have been great to me and I’m really happy to be staying. The culture and style of play here in Glasgow brings out the best in players and attracts the best players and coaches from around the world to the club. I remember watching the team win the Guinness PRO12 and getting excited by that and success is something I want to be a part of here.”

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend added: “Greg has worked really hard over the last 18 months since joining us and has fitted in well in our environment. It’s great news that he’s staying for another couple of years to compete with the other second-rows at the club.”
