Ratu Tagive commits his future to Glasgow Warriors

The 28-year-old winger has enjoyed a breakthrough season, earning him a place in Gregor Townsend’s Dark Blues squad for the Guinness Six Nations.

Although he did not feature during the coronavirus-curtailed championship, he has shown enough to incoming Warriors coach Danny Wilson – still a member of Townsend’s back-room staff – to earn fresh terms.

Nakarawa scores on his return for Glasgow Warriors

Nikola Matawalu was also on the bench for the Warriors.

The win gave the Warriors a chance of reaching the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals.

The success moves them into the final best-placed runners-up spot but Dave Rennie’s men will need for both Saracens and Gloucester not to win on Sunday if they are to reach the quarter-finals.

     

Fiji rugby star Nakarawa returns to Glasgow

The 31-year-old left Glasgow for the French club in 2016 after making 69 appearances but will re-join the Warriors until the end of the season.

Nakarawa told the club he felt like he never left.

"I feel happy. It feels like I never left the club...I just went for a holiday and then I came back," he said

"Glasgow is my home. I can't forget Glasgow because that is where my professional rugby career started so it's like always in my heart and that's why I always cheer for Glasgow everyday."

Glasgow Warriors officially confirm Leone Nakarawa is returning to club

The Fijian is due to arrive in Glasgow today (Thursday 2nd), having put pen-to-paper on a deal until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old made 69 appearances for the Warriors in his first spell at the club, following his debut against Connacht at the Sportsground in November 2013.

Nakarawa – who is comfortable in the second-row or back-row – quickly became a firm favourite with the Warrior Nation, with his signature offloading ability lighting up many a match in both the Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup.

     

Leone Nakarawa closing in on a return to Glasgow

Nakarawa was sacked by Top 14 club Racing 92 after he returned from the World Cup in Japan two weeks late, with a statement from the club slating the 62-test international for setting “deplorable example” for his now-former teammates.

Widely regarded as one of the world’s premier second rowers, Nakarawa’s newfound free agency has spurred interest from clubs around the globe.
