NEW Glasgow signing Domingo Miotti says he was attracted to the club by its commitment to “fun, attacking rugby”.

The 24-year-old stand-off, an Argentina international, will join the Warriors for next season subject to receiving a visa. He is currently playing for Western Force, having moved to the Australian team from the Jaguares last year.

“I’m very excited to join Glasgow,” he said. “I’ve watched some of Glasgow’s games and they play a fun, attacking style of rugby that I’m excited to be a part of. My focus for this season is to give my all for the Western Force, and when the tournament is over, focus on Glasgow Warriors."

Miotti will compete for the No 10 jersey with Duncan Weir, who is coming back to the Warriors from Worcester, and Ross Thompson, who is enjoying an excellent rookie season. Irish veteran Ian Keatley joined Glasgow earlier this year and has been working well with 21-year-old Thompson, but his short-term contract expires in the summer.

“Domingo is an exciting attacking prospect for us,” head coach Danny Wilson said. “He’s a young Argentinian international with a strong kicking game and good ball-handling skills. He adds further quality to our backline and we’re looking forward to welcoming him to Scotstoun in the summer.”

A sevens international as a teenager, Miotti also represented Argentina at under-20 and A levels before winning his first full cap in last year’s 16-16 draw with Australia in the Rugby Championship. By the Warriors’ reckoning he is the eighth player from Argentina to represent the club; the seventh, tighthead prop Enrique Pieretto, is in the current squad.

The signing of Miotti is just the latest step in a thoroughgoing overhaul of that squad by Wilson, who has already transformed the look of the team’s back division by giving game time to young talents such as Ollie Smith, Rufus McLean and recent recruit Cole Forbes as well as Jamie Dobie and Thompson. Centre Sione Tuipulotu and back-three player Josh McKay will add to the competition for places among the backs.

The key signing in the pack has been Australian international back-row forward Jack Dempsey, while other notable recruits include loosehead prop Jamie Bhatti, who is returning to Scotstoun from Bath. Lewis Bean will arrive from Northampton on a permanent deal after impressing during a loan spell, and Wilson has also signed three players from rivals Edinburgh: Scotland tighthead Simon Berghan, Ally Miller and Rory Darge.
