Facundo Cordero says he is eager to make up for lost time next season after agreeing a contract extension, believed to be for two years, with Glasgow.

The 24-year-old from Argentina joined the Warriors in March on a short-term deal until the end of the season. A hamstring injury has prevented him from making his debut for Franco Smith’s team, but he is now well down the road to recovery and turned out for the Warriors’ “A” team last month in the Super Series Sprint competition against Stirling Wolves.

“I’m excited to come back stronger next season,” said the winger or full-back, who has four compatriots in the squad at Scotstoun – Enrique Pieretto, Lucio Sordoni, Sebastian Cancelliere and Domingo Miotti. “Picking up an injury just after I got here was frustrating, but I’m determined to show the coaches and the supporters what I can do and earn the chance to pull on the Glasgow jersey.

“It was a straightforward decision for me to re-sign. The opportunity to stay here and play the style of rugby that Glasgow is known for was one I couldn’t pass up, and there’s a really good group of people at the club.

“Having a strong group of Argentinians here definitely helped me to settle in quicker, too. To see your friends every day means this doesn’t feel like a job, and all of the lads at Scotstoun really welcomed me with open arms from day one. I’m very grateful and very happy to be staying.”

Head coach Smith said: “We’re pleased to be able to retain Facundo’s services ahead of next season. He’s someone who is keen to improve and eager to show the Warrior Nation what he can do on the field. We look forward to continuing to work with him ahead of the new season.”
