Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Ali Price has extended his stay at Scotstoun for a further two years, the PRO12 club announced on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old, who signed his first professional contract in December after graduating through the BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy, will be staying until at least May 2018.

Price has impressed this season, starting five matches, including the 22-5 win over Racing 92 at Rugby Park last month.

Born in Kings Lynn, the Scotland U20 international has made 16 appearances for the Warriors, nine of which have come in this campaign and he was part of the PRO12 title-winning squad last season.

He previously played for Bedford Blues and was part of the Saracens Storm 'A' league set-up.

"I'm delighted to sign a new two-year contract to extend my stay with the Warriors," he told glasgowwarriors.org.

"I've loved life in Glasgow since moving up here and the last few months have been great, as I’ve played regularly and I feel I’ve made a positive impact.

"Being able to train and play with quality players at Scotstoun has also allowed me to improve aspects of my game."

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Ali is continually developing as a scrum-half and it's great news that he's staying with us for the next couple of years.

"He's worked hard on his game over the past 12 months, and you can see the confidence he now has in his kicking game and taking on the defence with ball in hand.

"The most important attributes of a scrum-half are a fast and accurate pass, as well as a high fitness level and Ali has done well in these areas this season, seizing the opportunity to play for us in some important games."
