Glasgow Warrior Wynne heads to London Scottish on season long loan

London Scottish are very pleased to announce that flanker Lewis Wynne will be joining the Exiles on a season long loan from Pro14 side Glasgow Warriors.

London Scottish are very pleased to announce that flanker Lewis Wynne will be joining the Exiles on a season long loan from Pro14 side Glasgow Warriors.

The Falkirk born back rower will add some significant quality to an already impressive back row at The Athletic Ground.

The former Scotland Under 20 broke into the Glasgow side last season and went on to make a total of nineteen appearances for the Warriors. Back in November 2016, his performances were so impressive that he was awarded the McCrea Financial Services Warrior of the Month.

Selected for the Scotland Under 20s back in 2015, Wynne was part of the historic U20 side who beat Argentina 29-6, the first team to conquer the South Americans at that age grade.

Wynne was excited about the opportunity that had presented itself to him in coming to London and playing in the Greene King IPA Championship.

“I’m buzzing to be joining the squad this pre season and putting the work in before a hard year ahead. I’m always looking to further my game and this is an amazing opportunity with a great team. As a player, I will give my all to contribute positively to what will be a successful season for Scottish.”

The 21 year old, who can play in any position across the back row, is a product of Stirling County and lead them to the National Youth League Cup back in 2013. He was also part of their BT Premiership squad for 2017/18.

Wynne will head to south west London to get some much need game time and will be looking to test himself in the abrasive second tier of English rugby. As a part of his loan, he can be recalled by the Warriors at any point during the season.

The Warriors are looking forward to Lewis getting back out onto the field and were excited about the prospect of the young starlet playing for London Scottish.

Glasgow Warriors Assistant Coach, Kenny Murray said: “It’s been a tough year for Lewis (Wynne), but people should remember that it wasn’t long ago that he played 10 on the bounce for us at the start of the season (in 2016/17), so he’s proved that he can compete at this level.

“Getting some regular game time down at London Scottish, in a league that we know to be very tough, will benefit him, and I’m sure he’ll do well down there.”

Wynne who is signed with the Warriors until May 2019 will be hoping for a successful season at the RAG and will join the likes of Mark Bright, Matt Eliet and James Tyas in the Exiles’ back row.
