TIGHTHEAD prop Mike Cusack has been rewarded for his fine form in a Glasgow Warriors jersey with a new three-year deal which will see him stay at Scotstoun until at least May 2016.
The 28 year-old former Leeds Tykes front-rower is renowned for his exceptional strength and powerful scrummaging ability, with the Yorkshireman having become a key anchor in the Warriors front row this season. Cusack has now made 33 appearances since he arrived in Glasgow in June 2011 and head coach Gregor Townsend said: “He is developing a formidable reputation as one of the best tightheads in the game and to have him here at Scotstoun for the long-term is terrific news. With Test players Moray Low, Jon Welsh and Ed Kalman also able to play tighthead, Mike knows he has to continually work hard to win his place in the side.”
Cusack said: “This was an easy decision for me to make. There is a great buzz around Scotstoun and we’re building an exceptionally strong side. I want to help this club achieve success and that means committing to the direction the club are going.”
