Gregor Hayter has signed for Glasgow
Glasgow Warriors have signed back five forward Gregor Hayter fron Italian club Viadana.

Gregor, the former Caledonia Reds and Edinburgh Reivers forward, is to return to Scottish rugby after five years in Italian club rugby, first with Overmach Parma and then Viadana.

"I've always been impressed with Gregor," Hugh Campbell, Glasgow's head coach, said this afternoon. "He captained the Students' World Cup squad that I coached in Italy five years ago.

"He's a player of tremendous potential, and I know he's desperate to prove himself again in Scottish rugby. We've yet to see the best of him."

Gregor is a product of the Moray club in Elgin, and he subsequently progressed to Dundee High School FP before joining the professional ranks and playing in the Heineken Cup with first Caledonia Reds and then the Reivers. He also played under-18 and under-21 international rugby before leading the Scotland squad in the 2000 Students' World Cup in Italy.

Good Luck to Gregor - may be too old to really have a crack at top level but his signing mirrors Irish policy of filling teams with good experienced pro's when test team are on away on duty. Andy Henderson, Calvin Howarth and Ben Prescott were in his world cup student team so he is in good company. Maybe one of the teams will bring Ross Cook home from Italy now - or some of our other 'exiles' - Barry Irving, Mark Rennie, Gordon McFadyen - by the way anyone know where Keith Davidson is playing his rugby now?

Oh dear, is this the limit of our ambition - or budget?
