Zander Fagerson

It was a historic month for the Warriors, as they qualified for the quarter-finals of the European Rugby Champions Cup for the first time and Fagerson played an integral part.

He came off the bench in the bonus-point win over Cardiff Blues and started both the narrow defeat to Munster and the historic win at Welford Road.  Fagerson also turned 21 during the month and was named in the Sky Sports Team of the Week on two occasions.

He has also been included in Vern Cotter's Scotland squad for the RBS 6 Nations.

Jonny Gray

Gray was ever-present as captain in all three games during the month of January.

He scored a try in the memorable win over Leicester Tigers and was included in the Sky Sports Team of the Week.  During the month he was also named in Vern Cotter’s Scotland squad.

Josh Strauss

Josh Strauss started all three of the Warriors January fixtures as they moved back into the top four in the Guinness PRO12 and qualified for the knockout stages in Europe.

His impressive carries found Glasgow crucial yards and his versatility saw him playing at Number 8 and flanker.

Strauss is also set to represent Scotland in the up and coming RBS 6 Nations.

Tim Swinson


Swinson celebrated a new three-year contract in January and was ever-present in the Warriors engine room.

He put in back-to-back Man of the Match performances against Munster and Leicester and scored in the win over the Tigers at Welford Road.

Swinson is also in the Scotland squad and could add to the 25 caps he has for his country over the next eight weeks.
