Henderson Returns As Warriors Re-Sign Trio

Glasgow Warriorsa?" centre Andrew Henderson will make a welcome return to the side in tomorrow nighta?'s Magners League clash with Ulster at Ravenhill (kick-off 7.30pm), as Glasgow today announced the re-signing of three more key players. Blindside flanker Steve Swindall, hooker Fergus Thomson and scrum-half Sam Pinder have all pledged the next two seasons to the Warriors, joining stand-off Dan Parks who re-signed earlier this week. Swindall and Thomson are both named in the starting line up for tomorrowa?'s game while Pinder continues with his rehabilitation following an operation on his left shoulder that has ruled him out for the remainder of the season. On the signings Warriorsa?" coach Sean Lineen said: a??Steve has been enjoying a rich vein of form in the last two months having cemented his place in the No 6 jersey. He has also been rewarded by a place in the Scotland A training squad for the Barclays Churchill Cup in recent weeks. a??Fergusa?" attitude has been a stand out feature this season. He is a real talent and could go all the way to international honours so Ia?"m looking forward to Fergus and our new signing Dougie Hall challenging each other next season. a??Sam is a quality player who has a lot to offer Glasgow in the future. I have no doubt that he will hit the ground running when he recovers from his shoulder operation. Ia?"m expecting big things from him,a?? he added. For tomorrowa?'s match, Henderson returns in the only change Lineen has made following the 40-23 win over Connacht in Galway two weeks ago. The international centre missed that match having picked up an elbow injury in the narrow 23-19 loss to Saracens in the European Challenge Cup quarter-final at the beginning of this month. He replaces Graeme Morrison at outside centre. On the clash with the Magners Leaguea?'s second-place side Ulster, Lineen said: a??Wea?"ve got a run-in of three tough games to finish the season and tomorrow wea?"re up against a side who are gunning for the title. It couldna?'t be a tougher end to the season but we wouldna?'t have it any other way. a??Ulster will be a measure of how far wea?"ve come this season and to win wea?"ll have to be strong both mentally and physically. The match we lost against them was one of only two defeats at Hughenden this season, when we were beaten 19-8 in early January. Therea?'s no doubt theya?"ll be a tough nut to crack,a?? he added.
