Miotti Signs Contract Extension With Glasgow Warriors
Domingo Miotti has his sights set on contributing to a “special group of players” in 2023/24, after the fly-half agreed to put pen to paper on a new contract with Glasgow Warriors.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a breakout campaign in Glasgow colours in 2022/23, with the Argentinian international following in the footsteps of countryman Sebastian Cancelliere in extending his current stay at Scotstoun.
Having arrived in Glasgow ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, Miotti has made 20 appearances for the club to date since his debut in a 33-11 home win over the Dragons in December 2021.
It was in 2022/23 that the former Jaguares pivot made his mark, however, with 14 outings across all competitions in Franco Smith’s first season as Head Coach.
A first try in Glasgow colours came in December’s victory away to Zebre Parma, whilst a virtuoso performance in the number 10 jersey saw Miotti contribute 18 points – a try, five conversions and a drop-goal – to an historic 38-28 win over Munster at Thomond Park.
Capped nine times by Los Pumas, the Tucuman-born fly-half has also represented his country at 7s and at U20 level. “I’m so happy staying at Scotstoun,” Miotti told glasgowwarriors.org.
“We have an incredible group of players here, and I believe that we can do something big for the club."
“I really enjoyed last season; despite the fact I had a couple of injuries, we played some excellent rugby and it was such a special environment to be a part of. I think that I’ve improved a lot from when I first arrived, and I want to keep improving under Franco and the coaches. I’m always trying to give my best and improve my quality as a player.
“My main goal is to start as many games as possible in the number 10 jersey, and I want to help this team win silverware.”
Head Coach Smith added: “We’re pleased to retain Domingo’s services ahead of the new season, as we continue our preparations for an exciting campaign. He always comes into training eager to improve and give his all for this group, and he played his part in some memorable team performances last season."
“His skillset is clear for all to see and he has fully bought into what we’re looking to build at Scotstoun – we’re excited to continue to work with him.”
