Jones stays at Glasgow Warriors

Jones stays at Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow Warriors have made a statement of intent by retaining the services of one of the northern hemisphere’s most dangerous attackers in the face of significant competition, after Huw Jones put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with the club.

The 30-year-old joins fellow Scotland internationals Scott Cummings, Jamie Bhatti and Johnny Matthews – as well as young talents Gregor Hiddleston, Angus Fraser and Nathan McBeth – in extending his stay at Scotstoun, having developed into a world-class outside-centre for both club and country.

Having initially joined the club in 2017, Jones’s form since returning to Scotstoun in the summer of 2022 has been nothing short of sensational, playing a vital role in the club’s run to the 2023 EPCR Challenge Cup Final in Franco Smith’s first season as Head Coach.

Scorer of 20 tries in his 67 appearances in Glasgow colours to date, the centre earned the club’s Try of the Season award in his first campaign back at Scotstoun courtesy of a spectacular length-of-the-field effort in the record-breaking 73-33 victory over the Dragons in April 2023.

Jones has also formed highly successful partnerships with both Sione Tuipulotu and Stafford McDowall at club level, dove-tailing to devastating effect with both club-mates in the Glasgow midfield.

The centre has also become a fixture in the midfield on the highest stage, becoming Scotland’s first-choice outside-centre since returning to the Warriors last summer.

With 46 caps to date, Jones has been at the heart of a host of memorable moments in the dark blue jersey, including scoring twice against Australia on his first start and recording an unforgettable brace in the 2018 Calcutta Cup victory over England.

He also finished as joint-top try-scorer in the 2023 Guinness Six Nations with four scores, whilst his partnership with Tuipulotu saw both men named in the official Team of the Tournament.

Jones was also to the fore in Saturday’s history-making Calcutta Cup success at Scottish Gas Murrayfield, providing two assists to Duhan van der Merwe as Scotland claimed a 30-21 victory over the Auld Enemy.

His most recent appearance in Glasgow colours saw Jones showcase the full range of his abilities, running in a brace of tries and assisting one of Kyle Rowe’s finishes in an Investec Player of the Match-winning performance against Toulon at Scotstoun.

“When it came down to it, it was a really easy decision to be honest,” Jones told

“We’ve got a really good thing going here in Glasgow, and we fully believe that we’re on our way to becoming one of the top teams in Europe – we’re going strongly in the league and in the knockout stages in the Champions Cup, and we’ve got a playing group that is constantly improving. That’s an environment that I really want to be a part of going forward.

“Off the field, too, I’m incredibly settled in Glasgow. We’ve got a baby on the way in the next five weeks, which is hugely exciting, and we have great connections to our families across the UK. We’ve got a superb support network around us and that’s such an important thing for us as a family, so it was a no-brainer to be staying.

“I love all of the boys here and I love working with the coaching group. Since Franco came in, he’s helped to drive standards and improve us across the board, and he’s helped to create a brilliant culture at this club. Nigel [Carolan], Pete [Murchie] and Al [Dickinson] are all excellent coaches too, and I’ve got no desire to move and leave that behind. I really enjoy being here and coming in to work every day.”

“I believe we can win silverware and it’s up to us as a squad to make that happen. It’s a really exciting time to be a Glasgow Warrior.”

Head Coach Franco Smith added: “Good people make good players, and Huw represents that.

“He believes in what we’re building here at Scotstoun and knows the value of being part of a strong squad.

“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with him over the next couple of seasons.”
