Jon Welsh, the former GHA prop, will make his professional debut for Glasgow Warriors in Swansea on Sunday (14:35 k.o.). He is at loose head in the team for the Magners League game against the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium.
Jon, who joined Warriors last summer, said: “I’m immensely proud to get my first start for Glasgow. I’m a Glasgow boy, so it’s a dream come true to be starting this weekend’s game for my professional team.”
Another former GHA player; Peter Jericevich, has been selected in Scotland’s under-20 squad for the upcoming IRB World Junior Championship in Japan.
