Taylor Paris signs for Glasgow Warriors


The Glasgow Warriors have completed the signing of 19 year old Canadian international winger, Taylor Paris. He will be playing for the Scottish side in the Rabo Direct Pro 12 and the Heineken Cup. Young and fast, Paris has been in the Canadian set up for two years making his test debut as an 18 year old, the youngest in Canadian history, and having played Rugby Sevens for Canada as a 17 year old. Last year he was to be the youngest player ever to play at a Rugby World Cup but he missed out due to injury. Paris made his test debut on Canada´ 2010 tour of Europe where he played against Belgium, Spain and Portugal. Canada won all three matches with Paris scoring two tries in the 60-22 win in Madrid. Paris´ move to Scotland will see him team up with fellow Canadian international, DTH van der Merwe
Taylor Paris is one of Canada´ best up and coming players together with Conor Trainor and Phil MacKenzie and a certainty to feature at Rugby World Cup 2015. He has already made a massive impact in the Americas, having won the Gold Medal for Canada at the 2011 Pan American Games  in Guadalajara, Mexico. Firstly, however, Taylor will have the honor of captaining the Canadian under 20 team at the IRB Junior World Trophy being played this month in Salt Lake City, from June 18-30.
