Glasgow Warriors sign fly-half for rest of season

Keatley, 33, won seven Ireland caps between 2009 and 2017 and was most recently with Benetton.

Fly-half Adam Hastings, who will join Gloucester from Glasgow in the summer, is currently injured.

"It's a strange time to be joining the team with everything that's going on with Covid," said Keatley, who registered 1,247 points for Munster.

"However, I'm really happy to be joining a club and a city with a proud rugby history."

Head coach Danny Wilson said: "Ian's experience will be great from a performance point of view.

Nakarawa finally ready to play for Glasgow after 11 months absence

The hulking Fijian last played for the Warriors in late February before the pandemic shut the game down, and a troublesome knee injury has prevented him from seeing any action since.

Given the frequent setbacks in the Nakarawa recovery, Glasgow head coach Danny Wilson was understandably cautious about his prospects but expects to be able to utilise the lock in the rescheduled 1872 Cup match at Scotstoun.

Alainu'uese stays with Glasgow

The Mooloos lock won two Super Rugby caps under Dave Rennie in 2015 and has another chance to impress the departing Chiefs coach, who takes the reins at Glasgow for their next season starting in September.

Alainu'uese, 23, is understood to have inked a three-year deal after signing on a short-term contract last October, which was due to expire in May.

Waikato Rugby have released Alainu'uese from his Mooloos contract for 2017 and allowed the 2.02m lock, who weighs over 130kg, to sign professional forms for Glasgow.
