Glasgow Warriors will travel to face Munster with an experienced line-up named by Head Coach Gregor Townsend. Following last weekend’s tough Champions Cup loss down at Saracens, the Scottish outfit know that winning in Ireland could propel them right back into the PRO12 play-off mix.

In the back division, Ali Price and Nick Grigg take over from Henry Pyrgos and Peter Horne, while in the forwards, the only change to Warriors’ starting line-up sees Sila Puafisi come in for Zander Fagerson, who is out with a foot injury.

Townsend said of tomorrow’s crucial match: “We have had some great battles with Munster already this season and we are expecting the same on Saturday evening.

“They bring physicality and intensity on the same level as a Test match and we are going to have to perform very well in those aspects of the game to get a positive result.

“We didn’t get things right last weekend against Saracens but things move on pretty quickly in sport and we now have an opportunity to show a true reflection of the rugby we are capable of playing. We are determined to deliver a much better performance over in Cork.”
