A move to Exeter Chiefs could help Jonny Gray find an “extra edge” and take his game to the “next level”, says former Glasgow and Scotland team-mate Richie Vernon.

Gray, 25, is expected to follow Stuart Hogg in joining Exeter when his deal at Scotstoun expires at the end of the season.

And Vernon, who played for Sale as well as having two spells with Glasgow, believes the physicality in the English Premiership can bring more from the Scotland lock.

“I certainly think for him, it might just give him that bit of an extra edge that might make a difference in the long term,” Vernon told BBC Scotland.

“The competition within a club like Exeter and in the league itself, the level of physicality, that could well just keep pushing him.”

  • Gray nears Exeter move
  • Glasgow confirm Nakarawa deal

Last season Scotland full-back Hogg made the switch to Exeter after nine years at Scotstoun, with fly-half Finn Russell departing in 2018 for French club Racing 92.
