Glasgow Make Just One Change To Matchday 23 For Final With Leinster


Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie has made just one change to his matchday 23 for Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 final with Leinster at Celtic Park. 

That change comes among the replacements as prop Siua Halanukonuka comes into the squad.

Elsewhere, Rennie has stuck with the side which completely dismantled Ulster in the semi-final which sees Ali Price and Adam Hastings continue their half-back partnership.

Sam Johnson and Kyle Steyn continue in midfield while DTH ven der Merwe, Tommy Seymour and Stuart Hogg, who is making his final appearance for the Warriors before his move to Exeter Chiefs in the summer, complete the back-three.


Up front, Jamie Bhatti, Fraser Brown and Zander Fagerson start in the front-row while Scott Cummings and Jonny Gray pack down in the second-row.

Rob Harley, Callum Gibbins and Matt Fagerson complete the back-row.

“We’re excited to represent our City and our families at what is going to be an amazing occasion for Glasgow,” Rennie said.

“The noise that 10,000 people make in Scotstoun is deafening, so to play in front of more than 40,000 of our supporters is going to be a special experience.

“Leinster are a world class side with hardened finals experience, so we’re going to have to play better than we have all season to lift the trophy.”

Glasgow Warriors: Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour, Kyle Steyn, Sam Johnson, DTH van der Merwe, Adam Hastings, Ali Price, Jamie Bhatti, Fraser Brown, Zander Fagerson, Scott Cummings, Jonny Gray, Rob Harley, Callum Gibbins, Matt Fagerson.

Replacements: Grant Stewart, Oli Kebble, Siua Halnukonuka, Ryan Wilson, Tom Gordon, George Horne, Pete Horne, Huw Jones.
