Scotland centre Andrew Henderson has revealed a desire for a fresh challenge led to him deciding to leave Glasgow this summer.
Henderson is the Warriors longest-serving player and during his time with his hometown club he established himself as a fixture in the Scotland midfield.
But the combination of Max Evans and Graeme Morrison has eased him out of the international picture - as well as marginalising him to a certain degree with his club side.
And with Rob Dewey poised to join the Warriors from Ulster next season, Henderson's chances game time will reduce further in 2009/10.
Meanwhile he also has the Edinburgh duo of Ben Cairns and Nick de Luca to fight off in Scotland terms - leading to Henderson opting to join Montauban in France from next season.
Henderson said: "My Glasgow contract is up at the end of the season and I have always wanted the challenge of playing somewhere else some time in my career, so last summer I thought if things didn't go my way this season I'd think about trying that now."
England Under-18 head coach John Fletcher insists his young side will be better for the experience after beating Italy in the bronze final to round out their 2015 Rugby Europe U18 Championship campaign in style.
