Thompson to miss start of URC campaign

Ross Thompson will the start of the URC campaign
Glasgow's Ross Thompson for the opening rounds of the new United Rugby Championship season after the stand-off underwent surgery on a back problem.

The operation - had been planned for some time - was a success but Thompson will need time out to recuperate and rehab. He'll miss Glasgow's pre-season fixtures against Worcester Warriors and Ulster as well as the opening URC fixtures.

Warriors have brought in experienced stand-off Joel Hodgson on a short-term deal to provide back-up to Duncan Weir and Domingo Miotti.

Prop Enrique Pieretto injured his shoulder playing with the second-string Argentina XV in the summer and will be out until November following surgery.

Lucio Sordoni has joined Warriors on a short-term contract to cover for his fellow Argentinian international.
