Two changes to starting XV for Leinster trip

Two changes to starting XV for Leinster trip

Dave Rennie has made two changes to his starting side for their trip to face the reigning Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup Champions, Leinster in Dublin this weekend.

Glasgow beat Ulster 30-7 at Scotstoun last Friday to earn maximum points and name an unchanged backline, including try-scorers that night Adam Hastings and Tommy Seymour.

Up front Scott Cummings comes into the second-row with Rob Harley shifting to six and Jamie Bhatti starting at loose-head.

Huw Jones has been named amongst the replacements and will play his first game since picking up a knee injury whilst playing for Scotland against Ireland in this year’s Guinness Six Nations in February.

Glasgow Warriors Head Coach Dave Rennie said: “We’re looking forward to testing ourselves against the best team in Europe.

“It’s an exciting challenge and exactly the kind of game we need as we gear towards knock out footy.

“We’ve prepared well and 1-23 expect to see the same levels of desperation and brutality that we saw against Ulster on Friday night.”
