Glasgow Warriors have eased their injury worries at hooker with the signing of Shalva Mamukashvili on a deal until the end of the season.

Georgia No.2 Mamukashvili played in all four of his country's 2015 Rugby World Cup matches and offers cover with both Kevin Bryce and Fergus Scott facing lengthy spells on the sidelines.

The experienced hooker, who spent last season at Sale Sharks in the Aviva Premiership, goes straight into Glasgow's 41-man European squad.

Mamukashvili told the Warriors website: "Last season I watched the European Rugby Champions Cup and GUINNESS PRO12 and I know Glasgow Warriors are a really good club, I think they are one of the best in Europe.

"Playing against Argentina and New Zealand at the Rugby World Cup was a great experience and something which will help me at the Warriors.

"I arrived in Glasgow ten days ago and all the players have been really welcoming."

Bryce and Scott have both undergone shoulder operations and are expected to be out of action for several months.
