Guinness PRO12: Warriors duo sign new deals ahead of final
Forwards James Eddie and Jerry Yanuyanutawa sign on for another year with the Scottish club
Glasgow Warriors have confirmed that forwards James Eddie and Jerry Yanuyanutawa have signed new one-year deals with the club.
Both players have played their part in getting us to the Guinness PRO12 Final and we’re lucky to have them.
The news comes three days before the Scottish club go into battle with Munster in the Guinness PRO12 final at Ulster’s Kingspan Stadium.
Versatile forward Eddie, 29, has made 119 appearances during a 10-year spell with the club, which has seen him become one of the longest-serving players at the club, alongside regular appearances for Scotland on the HSBC Sevens World Series.
Eddie, who also captained the Warriors squad that retained their title at the Melrose Sevens event, admitted he was happy to extend his stay.
“I’ve spent my whole career in Glasgow and I’m very happy to have extended my stay at the club,” Eddie said.
“The supporters are incredible and I love playing for the Warriors.”
Yanuyanutawa, 30, joined the Warriors from London Irish in 2013 and he has made 30 appearances for the club in the front row.
The Fiji international, who faces plenty of competition for a place in Gregor Townsend’s side, admitted is was an easy decision to sign another one-year deal.
“My wife and I have really enjoyed the last two years in Glasgow and it was an easy decision to stay for another season,” Yanuyanutawa said.
“I’m looking forward to my third season with the Warriors and continuing to challenge for silverware.”
