Huw Jones: Scotland centre to stay in South Africa for Super Rugby

Scotland centre Huw Jones will remain with his South African province for the 2017 Super Rugby season, according to his agent.

Scottish Rugby was eager to bring the 22-year-old to either Edinburgh or Glasgow Warriors.

But Jones is contracted to Cape Town-based Western Province and the Stormers franchise until October 2017.

And Dane Galley told BBC Scotland WP would be resistant to any offer to buy out the remainder of his deal.

"100%, he is playing Super Rugby next year," said Jones' representative Galley.

The Super Rugby season runs from February to August.

Jones scored two tries in the autumn international loss to Australia and created Sean Maitland's score in the win over Argentina.

He did not feature in Saturday's victory over Georgia, having injured a foot while setting-up Maitland's try.

The Edinburgh-born centre was the joint-top try-scorer in this summer's Currie Cup, touching down seven times for Western Province.
