Duo to leave in the summer

It has been confirmed that Simone Favaro and Djustice Sears-Duru will leave the club at the end of the season.

Italian international Favaro joined the Warriors from Benetton Treviso in 2015 and has made 29 appearances for the club at open-side flanker. The 28-year-old was voted the club’s 2015/16 Player of the Season.

Canada international prop Sears-Duru joined the club in March 2016 and the 22-year-old has made four appearances.

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: “Simone has been a very popular figure at the club over the last couple of years and always puts in total commitment every time he plays.

“He is still a key player for us as we enter a period of important games. I’d like to thank him, as well as Djustice for all their efforts as Warriors."
