McBeth joins up with Warriors

Nathan McBeth's move to Glasgow Warriors has been confirmed
Glasgow Warriors have announced the signing of loosehead prop Nathan McBeth.

McBeth has represented both Scotland and South Africa at U20 level.

He's played for the Lions in Super Rugby and the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup.

The loose-head made 10 appearances for the Johannesburg-based franchise, his professional debut having come in a 47-39 victory over the Jaguares in March 2019.

McBeth's move sees the prop re-unite with former Scotland U20 team-mates Ross Thompson and Murphy Walker, having made four appearances in the 2018 U20 Six Nations and touched down for a try against Ireland.

He has also earned U20 honours for South Africa, starting in three matches at the 2018 U20 World Championship in France.

Standing at 6'3" and weighing in at 118kg, McBeth came up against future team-mates Zander Fagerson and Ali Price earlier this year, starting against the touring British and Irish Lions.

Away from rugby, the loose-head is a keen fisherman and cites Springbok legend Os du Randt as his childhood rugby idol.

Speaking following the announcement, McBeth told "I'm very thankful for the opportunity to join the Warriors.

"It will be an honour to represent them for the next few years. I can't wait to meet the team and start to train with them.

"It's a dream come true for me. Glasgow has always stood out for me because of the exciting brand of rugby that they play and I'm very excited to become a part of that."

Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Danny Wilson welcomed McBeth's signing, adding: "Nathan is a player we've had our eye on for some time.

"He's a physical ball-carrier and a young man who is willing to learn and improve his own game.

"To be able to add a young, Scottish-qualified prop of his calibre is a real boost and we're looking forward to seeing what he can do."
