Glasgow Warriors Snap Up All Blacks Winger
Glasgow Warriors have signed Super Rugby winning New Zealand winger Lelia Masaga from the Chiefs on a two-year contract.
The 30-year-old, who will arrive following the conclusion of the Super Rugby Season, has played 91 times for the Chiefs and won two Super Rugby titles under incoming Warriors coach Dave Rennie in 2012 and 2013.
Capped for the All Blacks, Masaga scored 38 tries in Super Rugby before moving to Japan and has since returned to the Chiefs wider training squad this season. The winger becomes Glasgow’s fifth new signing ahead of the 2017/18 season, following the announcements of Huw Jones, Callum Gibbins, Oli Kebble and Adam Hastings.
Speaking to glasgowwarriors.org, Lelia Masaga said:
“I’m excited to be joining my new club Glasgow Warriors in August.
“I’m looking forward to being there under Dave Rennie as head coach, to be part of a great team of players and to meet all the fans who support the club.
“I can’t wait to start this new journey in Scotland.”
