Glasgow Warriors announced today that No.8 Viliami Ma'afu is to depart the club while Golden Lions Super Rugby captain Josh Strauss will move to the Warriors until May 2015.

"We are pleased that we could come to an agreement with Josh and Glasgow Warriors which will allow Josh to fulfill his desire in playing rugby in Europe for an extended period. "

"We want to thank Josh for his contribution at the Lions and wish him all the best with his future".

Speaking about the move Strauss said, "I am very grateful to the Lions for the opportunities afforded to me to grow as a player and thereby assisting me in being able to make this change now".
