Dewey signs up for Glasgow switch

Scotland international centre Rob Dewey has agreed a three-year-deal with Glasgow Warriors.

The 25-year-old will leave Ulster at the end of the season, having moved on from Edinburgh two years ago.

Dewey said: "It's going to be tough to earn a place in a very competitive Glasgow back-line. However, I'm looking forward to the challenge.

"I also believe in the importance of being in Scotland, in front of the national coach."

Dewey won the last of his 13 caps during the 2007 World Cup and can boast a total of 20 points from his international appearances.

"Glasgow have been on the up for the last three seasons now and their win over Toulouse in France back in January really shows that they are a team to be reckoned with," added Dewey. "It's too good an opportunity to miss out on."

Dewey, who was on Sevens duty for Scotland at this month's World Cup in Dubai, has been unable to command a regular spot in the Ulster squad this term and has played most of his rugby for club side Ballynahinch.

Warriors head coach Sean Lineen said: "I've always liked the way Rob plays. He has a very big physical presence.

"With Chris Cusiter joining the club in the summer and Thom and Max Evans re-signing until after the next World Cup, Rob is yet another exciting addition to a pretty special looking Glasgow back-line."
