Ayr's young prop D'arcy Rae is jetting off to Italy for a month to play for Guinness Pro 12 side Benetton Treviso.
The Glasgow Warriors BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy Stage 3 player (formerly known as Elite Development Players) will gain extra experience as a professional with the northern Italian side.

We wish D'arcy all the best.
