Maitland off to Scotland

6:08 am on 24 October 2012

The Scottish rugby club Glasgow Warriors has announced they've signed the Crusaders three-quarter Sean Maitland.

The 24-year-old will also qualify to play for Scotland courtesy of both his Grandparents who were born in Glasgow.

Subject to medical and visa, he will join up with the Warriors squad in the coming weeks, having put pen to paper on a contract that will keep him there until at least the May 2015.

Maitland was a part of the New Zealand U19 team that won the World Cup in 2007, and the U20 side that scooped the 2008 Junior World Championship.

In 2010 he played for New Zealand Maori.

Maitland had been linked with a move to the Highlanders.
