Speaking following the announcement, McBeth told the club’s website: "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.”
