Gaston Cortes has joined up with the Glasgow squad
Gaston Cortes and Ewan McQuillan have linked up with Glasgow Warriors as front-row cover, as Dave Rennie's squad prepares to return to Guinness PRO14 action this Friday night.

The prop duo are currently training with the Scotstoun side, providing competition for places over the next few weeks.

Cortes arrives at the club from Leicester Tigers, having previously made over 100 appearances for Bristol over a six-year spell.

Capped five times by Argentina, the 34-year-old stands at 5'11" and weighs in at 109kg.

28-year-old McQuillan joins the squad from FOSROC Super6 side Southern Knights, having previously enjoyed spells in the English Championship with London Scottish and Yorkshire Carnegie.

The prop has impressed in his outings for the Knights so far this season, including a two-try showing in January's win over Boroughmuir Bears.

Meanwhile, loose-head Charlie Capps has joined Leicester Tigers on a short-term loan.

The Scottish-qualified prop moves to Welford Road as part of a swap deal with Cortes.
