Connor Braid’s Move To Warriors Made Permanent

27th February 2015

Connor Braid’s move back to Glasgow Warriors has been made permanent after an agreement was reached between the Warriors and London Scottish.

Braid initially joined the PRO12 league leaders on loan earlier this month but after a request by Glasgow Warriors to make the move permanent, London Scottish agreed to release him from his contract.

The Canadian internationalist made 15 appearances for London Scottish this season, scoring three tries.

London Scottish Director of Rugby, Mike Friday, said: “When the request came from Glasgow Warriors we were 100 per cent supportive after Connor made it clear he was keen on a permanent return back to Glasgow. 

“A big thing about London Scottish is allowing players to maximise their potential and when players move on for that very reason we wish them all the best and that’s certainly the case with Connor.

“We want to assist all players in their career development and give them the opportunity to play at the highest level possible.”

London Scottish Chief executive, Kenny Baillie, added: “We value our close working relationship with Glasgow Warriors and this is another example of our strong partnership.

“We were very happy to help them at this time and the fact that Connor has the chance to again test himself against some of the best players in the world in the Guinness PRO12 is fantastic.

“We wish him well as he has been a terrific ambassador for London Scottish in his short time at the Richmond Athletic Ground.”

Braid said: “I’d like to thank everyone at London Scottish for making me feel so welcome and wish them all the best for the remainder of the season.”
