Scotland World Cup stars back for Glasgow ahead of Leinster trip
Glasgow welcome back six of Scotland's World Cup stars when they face Leinster in the Guinness Pro12 on Friday night.
Sean Lamont, Richie Vernon, Duncan Weir, Tim Swinson and Ryan Wilson will all start in Dublin while hooker Kevin Bryce is on the bench.
Italy flanker Simone Favaro starts his first match for Warriors after coming off the bench to score a last-minute try and secure a bonus-point victory over Dragons last Friday.
Alex Dunbar misses out after picking up a chest injury following his comeback from a serious knee problem, while Rory Clegg starts on the bench ahead of his move to Oyonnax in France.
Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "We were pleased to get back to winning ways last weekend and we're looking forward to the trip to face Leinster.
"We've been boosted by the return of some players from the Rugby World Cup, so competition for places has increased. It's important that we utilise our squad with 15 back-to-back games up until the beginning of February."
