Oli Kebble hopes to finish off in style

Oli Kebble recently made his 100th Warriors appearance
Oli Kebble will be leaving Warriors at the end of the season after seven years at the club and he's hoping to sign off as a URC winner.

"I'm pretty sad I'm leaving, but I think I've had a great stint here," said Kebble who recently made his 100th Warriors appearance. "All good things have come to an end. It's not really a reality yet, we've got three big weeks to go, so I haven't thought about it much.

"The awards dinner on Saturday was the first time I've thought about it properly. It's quite sad, but if you stay too long you become a villain, so I'm glad I'm leaving a hero!"

Joining in 2017, the former South Africa U20s prop went on to play for Scotland and was part of the Glasgow sides that lost in the finals of PRO14i n 2019 and the Challenge Cup last season.

Kebble will now face his former side, the Stormers, on Saturday for a place in the URC semi-finals, before making a big decision on his future - although he's keeping his cards close to his chest'

"I've got a decision to make this week, it sounds like. That's all I can say right now."

Looking back at this time in Glasgow, Kebble said: "Making the [2019] final at Celtic Park was really special.

"Being a really competitive side every year, we've done well every year even if we haven't won anything. To top it off this season with a trophy would be lovely and a good way to end it.

"The guys who did experience that [final] will have a little extra knowledge when it comes to finals rugby. For us, we're completely a different team. We just need to focus on being the best we can be for ourselves and when it comes to those big moments hopefully we can be a little bit luckier."
