Glasgow Warriors have brought in Canadian international Connor Braid on an initial three-month deal.

Braid, who can play at fly-half, centre and fullback, has started training with his new team-mates at Scotstoun ahead of their pre-season friendly with Harlequins on Saturday.

A former Doncaster Knights back, Braid has appeared for both the Canadian XV and Sevens sides, and was a second-half substitute for the Canada XVs team in their 19-17 defeat to Scotland in Toronto in June.

"Glasgow is a really good club and when Gregor [Townsend] gave me a call I jumped at the opportunity, Braid said. "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."
