ADAM HASTINGS IS to leave English Premiership side Bath and join Glasgow in a bid to follow father Gavin and uncle Scott into the Scotland side.

But while Scotland greats Gavin and Scott played at fullback and in the centres respectively, 20-year-old Adam is fly-half.

Having made 12 appearances for Bath since joining the west country club in 2014, Edinburgh-born Hastings has decided the time is right to head back to Scotland.

“From a young age I wanted to play for Scotland and I believe playing in Scotland is the right decision for me at this stage of my career,” Hastings said in a Glasgow statement today.

“As a young 10 it’s important to get game time and hopefully I’ll get that opportunity in Glasgow.

“I’m excited about working under Dave Rennie as I’ve heard he is a world-class coach.

“There are some quality players in Glasgow and I can’t wait to get up there and start working with them.”

Hastings added he was looking forward to working with Glasgow and Scotland fly-half Finn Russell.

“I like to run the ball, I’m quite an instinctive player and I like to have a crack. I like the way Finn plays and I can’t wait to get up there and learn from him.”

The Warriors reached the last eight of the European Champions Cup for the first time this season, although they were well beaten by holders Saracens last weekend.

Gregor Townsend’s side are currently sixth in the Guinness Pro12 with four rounds of regulation fixtures remaining.
