Johnson one of nine Warriors in BT Cup semi-finals

Sam Johnson will this weekend return from an ankle injury as nine Warriors are named to feature in the semi-finals of the BT Cup. 

Johnson has spent over a month on the sidelines since getting injured in the Guinness PRO12 game v Scarlets at Scotstoun and will turn out for Stirling County as they travel to Melrose.

Scotland international Chris Fusaro has also been selected for County while their Warriors teammate Jamie Bhatti will face off against them for the Borders side.

At Milbrae, Ayr host Glasgow Hawks in the other semi-final with Canada international Djustice Sears-Duru named for the pink and black.

Two more internationals will be involved, with the Hawks naming USA’s Greg Peterson and Namibia’s Tjiuee Uanivi as well as Junior Bulumakau and Hagen Schulte.
