Vernon Targets Return
Written by RockSport on January 8, 2018
Scotland centre Richie Vernon is targeting a return to action for Glasgow Warriors next month following a second lengthy period on the sidelines.
The 30-year-old has not played since March when he required Achilles surgery.
He had only just returned from a 14-month lay-off after struggling to overcome a shoulder problem.
“I’m just doing everything I can to impress in training, day-in, day-out,” Vernon told BBC Scotland.
“It’s great to be back out there with the lads again, but there is still a tough path to get back into a team that is doing so well.”
Vernon, who began his career in the back-row, won the last of his 24 caps at the 2015 World Cup.
He has turned out twice for Scottish Premiership club Currie in recent weeks as he closes in on full fitness.
