Niko Matawalu has also signed a new contract to stay with Glasgow Warriors until 2021.

The Fiji scrum-half and wing, 29, is in his second bout with Warriors, having also played Bath and Exeter.

“He has been fantastic,” said Warriors head coach Dave Rennie. “He has always received the power to score from anywhere.

“He has been really true, really clear in his job this year also due to the he has completed in a really substantial level”

Rennie expects Matawalu, who’s scored 38 attempts in 10 3 Glasgow looks, has”a bit of a state” in event at Murrayfield on Saturday when Warriors carry on Edinburgh for the first time this season.

“He’s always in discussions around our starting group,” said the New Zealander.

“A lot of those loose forwards do a little tackling practice on him and he always embarrasses those guys along with his footwork.

“He’s a real bunch. He has been playing quite well. He has been clinical ball in hand”
