Scotland prop Moray Low has signed a two-year contract extension with Glasgow Warriors, handing the Magners League leaders a major boost ahead of tomorrow night’s Heineken Cup clash with Newport Gwent Dragons.

The 25-year-old, who joined the Warriors as an apprentice in 2006, made his Scotland debut against France in the 2008 RBS 6 Nations and has won five international caps and is certain he will continue to improve at Glasgow.

Low said: “I’m delighted to have re-signed with Glasgow because it’s a great club and good for my development as a player.

“I believe the more of the young players we can keep here the better so I’m happy to have made sure my future is in a Glasgow jersey.”

Warriors head coach Sean Lineen added: “Moray has so much potential and I think it’s just fantastic that he’s signed with us.

“He’s got a great work ethic and it shows his ambition to stay with Glasgow.

“He’s becoming a leader and playing for Scotland is what he deserves.

“He will be one of the key men in the future years of Glasgow.”

The tight-head prop’s stay was confirmed on the day England's Royal Highness The Princess Royal, the patron of Scottish Rugby, officially opened the Warriors’ new training base at Scotstoun Stadium following an £18m redevelopment.

The Princess Royal undertook an hour-long tour before unveiling a commemorative plaque at the facility, which Lineen believes will enable Glasgow to build on their current success.

Lineen added: “The facilities here at Scotstoun will become central to the future success of Glasgow Warriors both on and off the field.”

Scotstoun Stadium will become a centre of excellence for rugby and the Warriors will use the new complex as their training base from June 2010.
