GLASGOW WARRIORS have handed a two-year deal to one of the brightest young talents in Scottish rugby in the shape of Merchiston Castle and Scotland Under-18 scrum-half Jamie Dobie.
“I’m delighted to be making the step and joining Glasgow Warriors for the next two seasons,” said the 17-year-old, who was born in Inverness, and was named Scottish rugby’s most ‘Exciting Prospect’ in The Offside Line’s End of Year Awards for 2018,
“This is a real opportunity for me to develop and learn from some of the best players in the country and bring my own game on in a new environment.
“It will be a huge test, but one I am massively looking forward to.”
Head coach Dave Rennie added: “It’s uncommon for a player to be signed straight from school, but Jamie is one of the most exciting young talents in the country and we believe he’s ready to thrive in a professional environment.
“He’s an impressive man and has the potential to become the complete scrum-half.
“He’ll learn a lot from the three nines already at the club and we’re rapt to have him on board.”
