Glasgow Warriors head coach, Sean Lineen, has made four changes to the starting line-up that faced Cardiff Blues last weekend in search of a more passionate performance from his players.

The only change in the pack sees James Eddie, who scored a sensational try from 60 metres out last weekend, rewarded with a start in place of Richie Vernon.

On Eddie, Lineen said: "We"ve brought James Eddie back in who epitomises what we are about here at Glasgow. He is Glasgow through and through and we need the other 14 payers on the field to show the same kind of passion."

The three other changes are in the backs where Colin Shaw replaces the injured Thom Evans and Sam Pinder comes in for Chris O"Young who is also sidelined through injury. The third change sees Hefin O"Hare come back into the fray in place of Max Evans who moves to the bench.

On the challenge of the Ospreys, he added: "We need to front-up a bit more. The Welsh teams always give us hard games and facing the league champions is going to be no different. We are preparing for a very tough encounter."

The Warriors return to their new home at Firhill Arena next Friday night (5 October, kick-off 7:30pm) when they play hosts to Irish province, Connacht.
