While Gregor Townsend will be wrapping some of his key men in cotton wool this weekend, Jamie Bhatti hopes to get back to Scotstoun to prove he’s worthy of a place in the matchday squad.
Jamie Bhatti has agreed a new deal to stay another season at the Glasgow Warriors after a “whirlwind” first full professional season.
Jamie Bhatti could have still been in the slaughterhouse or in the police, but instead he seems likely to line up against Australia for Scotland for his first start in this weekend’s third Autumn Test.
Leicester’s Luke Hamilton, once sent off playing against Scotland, and Chris Harris of Newcastle were Gregor Townsend’s two wildcards among ten uncapped players in his squad for the Autumn Tests.
Hauling carcasses in the abattoir makes locking horns with the best tight-heads in European rugby a breeze for Jamie Bhatti.
