Scotland prop Moray Low insists that Glasgow Warriors have a bright future after penning a two-year contract extension with the club.
Low arrived at the Firhill Stadium in 2006 and made his international bow in the 2009 RBS Six Nations match against France in Paris.
The 25-year-old will line up for the Warriors in tonight’s Heineken Cup showdown with Newport Gwent Dragons.
“I’m delighted to have re-signed with Glasgow because it’s a great club and good for my development as a player,” he said.
“Not only do we have a great group of lads here, but we will soon have a fantastic training facility in Scotstoun.
“I believe the more of the young players we can keep here the better so I’m happy to have made sure my future is in a Glasgow jersey.”
With fellow tighthead prop Euan Murray’s international future in doubt because of his refusal to play on Sundays, Low has a chance to establish himself as Andy Robinson’s first-choice starter during the coming Six Nations campaign.
And Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen believes the prop, who made his Warriors debut in 2006, has a massive role to play for club and country in the coming year.
“Moray has so much potential and I think it’s just fantastic that he’s signed with us. I’ve watched him grow since he signed as a youngster,” he said.
“He’s got a great work ethic and it shows his ambition to stay with Glasgow. He’s becoming a leader and playing for Scotland is what he deserves. He will be one of the key men in the future years of Glasgow.”
