Glasgow Warriors have announced that Ali Price has moved to Edinburgh Rugby on loan, describing the move as being “in the national interest”.
The experienced scrum-half started two matches and came off the bench in another at this year’s Rugby World Cup but faced stiff competition for a place in his club side.
He’s now made the switch to rivals Edinburgh in a move Warriors say was at the request of the Scotland national team as well as the capital club.
A club statement read: “Glasgow Warriors have released Ali Price on loan to Edinburgh Rugby with immediate effect, for the remainder of the season after an approach was made by the Scotland national team and Edinburgh Rugby.
“Price felt this was an opportunity that would be beneficial for his own personal development.
“The club has agreed, considering this factor, the move being in the national interest, and the timing of the proposal meaning Price can move straight into Edinburgh following his post-Rugby World Cup break and the subsequent return to play protocols he has been managing for a groin injury.”
Price, who has 66 international caps, has been with the Glasgow club for the past ten years. During that time he has won the 2014/15 Pro12 title and has been awarded the club’s player of the season on two occasions, in the 2016/17 and 2018/19 seasons.
