Match Preview: Glasgow Warriors v Ulster

Match Preview: Glasgow Warriors v Ulster

Second hosts third in this battle of two BKT URC pacesetters, with both teams having won four of their first five matches.

Giving his thoughts, Glasgow head coach Franco Smith said: “Ulster are a top-class outfit. They have proven that again by only losing one game so far and have started the season in strong form.

“They have an experienced coaching group that knows us well, they have a squad full of international talent and we expect them to be at their very best, as they have shown good form away from home.

“We are excited to run out in front of a packed Scotstoun once again and the players are up for the challenge ahead.”

Jack Dempsey returns at No 8 for the hosts after recovering from the wrist injury he sustained while on Scotland duty at the World Cup, amid six changes from the bonus point win over Benetton.

Ireland lock Iain Henderson captains Ulster, while wing Jacob Stockdale will be looking to add to his five tries in the BKT URC this season.
