Canada international Connor Braid has joined Guinness PRO12 side Glasgow on an initial three-month deal.

Braid, 24, is a regular for his nation on the Sevens circuit and played at the Commonwealth Games - he has also made 12 Test appearances.

Coach Gregor Townsend said: "We're looking forward to getting the chance to look at Connor in training and in matches over the next few months.

"He's played in every position in the midfield and is equally comfortable at full-back. He has a real desire to develop as a professional rugby player and we're delighted to bring him in ahead of the new season.

"His versatility will come in useful and he'll add to the competition we already have within the squad.

Physical

"Connor should be in good physical shape having been involved with the Canada Sevens team at the Commonwealth Games, so he's likely to be involved in our pre-season games over the next couple of weeks."

Braid added: "Glasgow is a really good club and when Gregor gave me a call I jumped at the opportunity. Braid 

"I've been playing with Canada Sevens recently, but I felt this was a great opportunity and couldn't say no. DTH (van der Merwe) is one of my best friends and he spoke very highly of the club.

"I know a lot of the players from the sevens circuit and I played against Scotland in the summer tests. I'm here for three months and I'll keep my head down and work hard as I'd love to be here longer."
