SCOTLAND LOCK JONNY Gray will leave Glasgow Warriors to join English Premiership club Exeter Chiefs at the end of the season.

Gray has agreed a two-year contract with Exeter after earning the move with a series of stand-out performances for Glasgow and Scotland.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge. I see the move not only as a chance to experience something new, but at the same time it’s a chance for me to develop myself, not only as a player, but as a person,” Gray said.

Gray will get an up-close look at his new team when his current side host Exeter in a European Champions Cup clash next week.

With 55 caps for Scotland, Gray, who played in the recent World Cup in Japan, will bring a wealth of experience to Exeter, who sit top of the Premiership at present.

“Obviously, I’ve come up against the Chiefs in the past and I know just how tough a side they are and what the set-up is like down in Exeter,” Gray said.

“You can see how well they have done in recent years and at this stage in my career, I just feel it’s a great opportunity for me. I know I still have a lot to learn as a player, so hopefully the change of club will allow me to add new things to my game.

“Without doubt this was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make — and I will be giving everything between now and the end of the season to ensure my time [at Glasgow] finishes on a high.”
