Scotland star Jonny Gray will leave Glasgow Warriors for Exeter Chiefs next season on a two-year deal.

The 25-year-old lock agreed the move having made over 100 appearances for the Scottish side, and follows in the footsteps of international team-mate Stuart Hogg who made a similar switch from Scotstoun last year.

Gray told the club’s website: “I’m looking forward to the challenge. I see the move not only as a chance to experience something new, but at the same time it’s a chance for me to develop myself, not only as a player, but as a person.

“Obviously, I’ve come up against the Chiefs in the past and I know just how tough a side they are and what the set-up is like down in Exeter. You can see how well they have done in recent years and at this stage in my career, I just feel it’s a great opportunity for me.

“I know I still have a lot to learn as a player, so hopefully the change of club will allow me to add new things to my game.”

Gray admitted that leaving Glasgow, where he has played since 2012, would be ‘tough’, adding: “I love Glasgow and I’m so grateful to the club and so many people associated with the club for all they done during my time there.

“Without doubt this was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make – and I will be giving everything between now and the end of the season to ensure my time there finishes on a high.”

Glasgow Warriors Assistant Coach, Kenny Murray, said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to coach Jonny for the entirety of his professional career to date, and it’s been a privilege to watch him develop into the world-class rugby player he is today during his time in Glasgow.

“He’s an example of what can be achieved with hard work and dedication and we’re extremely proud of him.

“We’ll obviously be sad to see him leave the club at the end of the season, but when he does we’ll wish him well. I’m sure he’ll be as determined as ever to end his time here on a high.”
