Angus Fraser has admitted it was a no-brainer for him to sign a new contract at Glasgow Warriors as he looks to achieve his dream of playing for Scotland.

He joins fellow hookers Johnny Matthews and Gregor Hiddleston in committing his future to the club and the 24-year-old believes it’s the perfect opportunity for him to keep growing as a player. He’ll be hoping to get an opportunity to prove himself during the Six Nations, starting with Saturday’s game against Dragons if he is called upon.

With Matthews and Hiddleston as competition, as well as Scotland regular George Turner, there’s a lot of options in his way but he’s confident he can show Franco Smith he has what it takes.

Learning from them is something he is looking to do as much as possible and he is certain that it will improve him as a player moving forward.

He said: “It was a fairly straightforward decision. The last two years at Glasgow have been brilliant and I love it here. It’s the club I used to come and watch when I was little so it was a bit of a no-brainer. I’ve got internationals in the team ahead of me so I’ve been trying to take as much from them as I can.

“Just the way they are and hold themselves. They’re all really good professionals. I take that from them. I’ve been working on my throwing with them so you just pick off little things but also how to be your own player as well. Don’t worry about mistakes and just do your own thing.

“You see the guys coming through at Glasgow and Edinburgh and what they’ve gone on to achieve and it just makes you more hungry. You want to match what they’ve done. Playing for Scotland is definitely a goal of mine. To play in Six Nations and at a World Cup is my ultimate ambition. I’ve always gone to the games at Murrayfield and that’s been my goal since I was little. Hopefully one day I will achieve it.”
