Scotland National Team intervene to force through Ali Price move

Glasgow Warriors have released a club statement to confirm that Ali Price will be sent on loan to Edinburgh Rugby with immediate effect.

The Scotland international will move straight to Edinburgh following his international break as opposed to rejoining his former teammates in Glasgow.

The move has been approved following an approach by the Scotland National Team who indicated that the loan would be “in the national interest”. The 30-year-old scrum half will remain with Edinburgh Rugby until the end of the season at least.

A statement from Glasgow Warriors reads:

“Price felt this was an opportunity that would be beneficial for his own personal development. The club has agreed, considering this factor, the move being in the national interest, and the timing of the proposal meaning Price can move straight into Edinburgh following his post-Rugby World Cup break and the subsequent return to play protocols he has been managing for a groin injury.”

Edinburgh Rugby coach Sean Everitt, had the following to say about his new arrival:

“Ali is a Test Lion and brings to the club a wealth of experience at the very top level of international rugby. We’re delighted to welcome him to Edinburgh and I’m sure he’ll be eager to get started straight away.

“We’re blessed to have a really strong group of nines at the club, who all have unique strengths and abilities. Scott unfortunately continues to work his way back from a hip injury that has kept him side lined since October, which was also a factor in this move.

“Ali is a player with great vision and understanding of the game, and those qualities will only rub off on our scrum-halves.

“His arrival also breeds competition for places, which is only a good thing for us as we compete in both the BKT United Rugby Championship and EPCR Challenge Cup.

“Ali has been one of Glasgow Warriors’ most consistent performers in nearly a decade of rugby at Scotstoun – we appreciate their help in getting this move over the line.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming him to the club where he’ll get the opportunity to compete for a place from the get-go.”
