Glasgow have secured the futures of two of their international backs after Stuart Hogg and Lee Jones signed two-year deals through to 2017.

Scotland and British & Irish Lions full-back Hogg came through the ranks at Glasgow, joining the Scottish Rugby Elite Development Programme at the age of 17 and signing his first professional deal in 2011.

He was selected in the Scotland 7s squad to compete at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July.

The 22-year-old has played 58 times for the Warriors, scoring 101 points and has notched up eight tries for Scotland in 27 appearances, including a try in each of the recent viagogo Autumn Tests against Argentina and Tonga.

Primarily a full-back, but also comfortable at centre and stand-off, he became the youngest player to be called up to the British & Irish Lions squad for the series win in Australia.

“I’m delighted to sign a new two-year contract with the club. Over the past few seasons we’ve been going well and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it,” he told glasgowwarriors.org.

“There is a great group of people around the club and I’ve settled really well in Glasgow. The Warriors has been a big part of my life over the last five years and I’ve seen the club grow during that time.

“I’m really happy to be staying and I’d like to thank the club and Scottish Rugby for this new contract.”

Jones initially joined the Warriors on loan from Edinburgh Rugby last season, before signing a one-year deal at Scotstoun in August.

The winger was also part of the Scotland squad at the Commonwealth Games this year, and has made ten appearances so far for Glasgow.
