Scotland centre Andrew Henderson is relishing his new life in France - and has even taken a crash course in French lessons to help him settle in.
Henderson announced his decision to leave Glasgow for Montauban in the French Top 14 in the spring and was unveiled in his new shirt over the weekend.
He hopes to join fellow Scotland star Scott Murray in integrating himself into Montauban life and continues to develop his grasp of the language in order to further that ambition.
Henderson was a regular in the Scotland midfield until losing his place in the last 18 months.
He played no part in the 2009 RBS 6 Nations with Ben Cairns, Graeme Morrison and Thom Evans preferred at centre.
He finished his last season with the Warriors with a thumb injury but is now fit enough to start pre-season training next month.
He said: "I am very pleased to now be in Montauban having agreed the move a few months ago during my first visit.
"I really want to play well and try to give enjoyment to the fans who welcomed me to the club in the spring."
