Glasgow welcome back 10 internationals into starting line-up for Munster's visit

Glasgow welcome back 10 internationals into their starting line-up for the visit of Munster.

Nine Scotland players, including new cap Ali Price, come back following the autumn Tests along with Sila Puafisi, who helped Tonga to victory over Italy.

Fiji scrum-half Nemia Kenatale could make his Warriors debut off the bench in the Guinness PRO12 clash at Scotstoun on Friday night.

Head coach Gregor Townsend, whose side lost 22-5 to Ospreys last weekend, said: "It was great to see all the Warriors playing Test rugby over the past few weeks and we welcome a number of them back this weekend.

"The players have responded to last week's defeat in a way we have come to expect from them - with positivity, effort and determination. They were disappointed but have put in the hard work to make the necessary improvements.

"Munster are well organised in defence, physical in contact and show innovation in attack. We're going to have to be alert and at our best to come out on top."

Lock Brian Alainu'uese is suspended following his red card against Ospreys.
